The Automotive Parts Services Group team made the following statement, “Each year our members vote for the vendors who are leaders in different categories. The vendors selected provide outstanding value and support and are typically companies that members value as partners. The Outstanding Vendor Of The Year is a company that members view as extremely important and dedicated to their success.
