WIX Filtration Products Receives CARQUEST Vendor of the Year, Order Fill Awards

WIX Filtration Products was presented with the 2003 CARQUEST Vendor of the Year award and two Order Fill Awards in recognition of its impressive ship-and-fill rates, outstanding marketing programs and customer service. WIX is the exclusive manufacturer of CARQUEST’s Premium Blue and Red Filter lines.

GASTONIA, NC — WIX Filtration Products was presented with the 2003 CARQUEST Vendor of the Year award and two Order Fill Awards in recognition of its impressive ship-and-fill rates, outstanding marketing programs and customer service. WIX is the exclusive manufacturer of CARQUEST’s Premium Blue and Red Filter lines.

Todd Hack, CARQUEST vice president, presented WIX with the award at the CARQUEST Spring Meeting, March 25, in Raleigh, N.C.

“The strength of WIX Filtration Products, combined with innovative marketing programs and its knowledgeable and aggressive sales force truly sets WIX apart in this competitive industry,” Hack said. “Once again, WIX has proven itself to be one of our most reliable and valuable vendors and we are pleased to present our prestigious Vendor of the Year and Order Fill Awards to WIX Filtration Products.”

The 2003 CARQUEST Order Fill Award marks the fourth consecutive year WIX has been the recipient of this award. Additionally, WIX is now a three-time recipient (1992, 1995 and 2003) of CARQUEST’s Vendor of the Year Award.

CARQUEST’s Vendor of the Year is selected based on high order fills and fast turn-around times, marketing programs offered, superior factory representation and a strong relationship between the vendor and CARQUEST headquarters. To qualify for CARQUEST’s Order Fill Award, product must be shipped to CARQUEST Distribution Centers at a rate of 95 percent or better every month.

“Wix Filtration Products has shown that it is willing to continually go the extra mile for our customers,” said Terry McCormack, president of the Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group. “We have seen that when you combine the positive efforts of sales, marketing and operations and add the vision and energy that Wix provides, you achieve ultimate success.”

“The entire team at WIX Filtration Products has once again come together and its efforts have led to continued loyalty and trust from one of our most valued customers,” said John Washbish president of Dana Customer Relationship Management.

For the past 12 years, CARQUEST has recognized those manufacturers that provide the auto parts supplier with a 95 percent ship-and-fill rate for its respective product lines. Each manufacturer who attains this high level of performance receives a trophy commending its achievement.

Attending and accepting on behalf of CARQUEST Filters-WIX were Terry McCormack, president of Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group; John Washbish, president of Dana Customer Relationship Management; David Hogue, director of marketing and product management for Wix Filtration Products; Bryan Watson, executive vice president for CARQUEST Filters & Gaskets and Jeff Blocher, brand manager for CARQUEST Filters.
