The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) and 1Parts recently presented two international vendor awards for member support in North America as well as globally. The awards were presented during The Group’s member meeting held in Grapevine, Texas.

DENSO was honored by 1Parts as its Vendor of the Year for its global support of the combined global membership. Based in Belgium, 1Parts is a partnership between ADI, Pronto and Federated that has built a global members’ network of leading distributors with a focus on the independent aftermarket for parts, products and services.

“As The Group continues to grow its presence globally, our member meeting was the ideal time to recognize the vendor partners who have gone over and above to help grow their international businesses,” said Bill Maggs, co-chairman of The Group, CEO of National Pronto Association and co-CEO of 1Parts. ”We congratulate DENSO on earning this prestigious honor and thank them for their dedication and support.”

The Group International Vendor of the Year award was presented to Standard Motor Products (SMP) for its North American support of members of Federated and Pronto. SMP also was selected as Outstanding Vendor of the Year by The Group membership.

“By earning two top awards this year, SMP clearly stood out to our membership for their exceptional service,” said Rusty Bishop, co-chairman of The Group and CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “We have a long, successful history with SMP and we look forward to many more years of joint success.”
