The Diamond Award was created to recognize Alliance Parts Warehouse (APW) channel partners who distinguish themselves from all others. This top honor is reserved for only the best APW Channel Partners. The Diamond award is so named for the gemstone of the state of Arkansas, home to APW. Just as diamonds are known for their value and strength, APW Diamond Award recipients are Channel Partners who understand the value of a strong, collaborative relationship.

In presenting the award, Nick Chapin, product manager at Alliance Parts Warehouse, noted, “The Continental team consistently outperformed our sales projections and continues to bring us great product offerings that are certain to keep that trend going. They have even traveled to our shops and stores, conducting over 25 training sessions during the past year. Continental has all the hallmarks of a true partner and such incredible service and partnership deserves to be recognized.”

James McGonagle, head of sales at Continental National, and Michael Westrom, manager of sales – Traditional Aftermarket at Continental, accepted the award on behalf of the Continental Team. McGonagle noted, “It is truly an honor to be recognized for vendor excellence by one of the world’s largest auto parts distribution groups and it is testament of our entire team’s commitment and dedication to the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance partnership.”
