Automotive Parts Associates (APA) honored Robert Bosch LLC with its first-ever “Vision Award” at an APA shareholders’ breakfast held last week during AAPEX. Dan Freeman, president and CEO of APA, presented the award to Bobby Bloom, Bosch’s vice president, independent aftermarket sales for North America.
“We wanted to recognize Bosch in front of our shareholders and the aftermarket industry for their innovation, leadership in the industry, communication and forward-thinking,” said Freeman. “In order for businesses to retain a competitive edge, they must keep pace with technological advancements, utilize the latest test equipment and make certain that their employees are continuously engaged in training and development activities. Bosch provides all that with service training centers in 35 countries around the globe.”
“By being technology-focused, Bosch equips automotive technicians for today and tomorrow, and enables them to service and repair the ever increasing complexity of vehicle systems,” added Bill Cook, vice president of product development for APA.
