“We were excited to host 10 of the Alliance’s top shops this week in New York,” said Bill Collins, national groups sales director at Standard Motor Products Inc. “We embraced the opportunity to work strategically with these Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper shop owners on what service dealers want and need from their parts supplier and manufacturer partners.”

“This was an incredible week in New York,” said Justin Barrett, owner of Barrett Automotive, a Bumper to Bumper Certified Service Center. “These meetings enable me to run my shop at an optimal level. It was extremely beneficial to meet with Standard Motor Products at their world headquarters. We value our partnership with the Alliance and Standard. Together, we are best able to service the driver.”

This year’s meeting focused on CSC program elements, business-to-business e-commerce solutions and what the shop of the future will require from its owner and parts supplier.

The SCAC members are appointed to this elite council for being an expert Auto Value, Bumper to Bumper and Confidence Plus CSC shop owner. Each member serves a two-year term with an annual rotation replacing five members.
