ACDelco Top Shops Enjoy VIP Experience During AAPEX

ACDelco rolled out the red carpet to honor five Top Shops Contest grand-prize winners and their guests during the AAPEX 2016.

Introduced in May to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ACDelco brand, the Top Shops Contest recognizes outstanding members of the ACDelco Professional Service Center (PSC) program who exhibit customer service excellence and support for their local communities.

“Throughout our 100-year history, the repair shops have been an instrumental part of our success,” said Heather Waszczenko, national brand manager, ACDelco. “As we celebrate this milestone at AAPEX, we’re thrilled that the owners of these top shops can join us to share in the excitement of Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week.”

The following Top Shops Grand Prize winners – one from each of ACDelco’s five business regions – enjoyed a complementary trip to Las Vegas for Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week:

• Orlando Crivelli, G.O. Crivelli Automotive Inc., New Castle, Pennsylvania

After experiencing AAPEX 2016 and the SEMA Show, ACDelco hosted the winners at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club in nearby Pahrump, Nevada. During their time at Spring Mountain, they attended the official Chevrolet Corvette driving school and also had the opportunity to test their skills on the track.

Through its PSC program, ACDelco partners with more than 5,000 independently owned shops to provide marketing support and industry-leading training. To learn more about the ACDelco PSC program, visit
