NAPA recently presented its Heavy-Duty Supplier of the Year Award for 2007 to Phillips Industries. All Phillips’ employees were on hand to be part of the May 13 recognition ceremony, where the award was presented by Jay Lott, NAPA heavy-duty general manager.
“We have asked everyone at Phillips to be part of this recognition ceremony because you all had a hand in helping us meet the demands of NAPA,” says Rob Phillips, director of operations for Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based Phillips Industries. “We all can take pride in having received this prestigious award.” Many personally accepted Lott’s appreciation for a job well done.
Each year, top suppliers to NAPA are evaluated on criteria that assist them in meeting their customers’ expectations. Phillips Industries received the highest overall rating for its efforts in 2007.
“With over 6,000 stores nationwide providing parts to every imaginable type of vehicle, from cars to big trucks, it is an honor for Phillips to be part of their program,” says Bill Phillips, director of sales, who emphasized how pleased the company was to receive this award from NAPA. “We expect to exceed NAPA’s stringent standards for their suppliers yet again in 2008.”
