Phillips Industries announced Tuesday, Feb. 24, that it has won the NAPA Heavy Duty Manufacturer of the Year Award for 2008. This is the second year in a row NAPA has chosen Phillips Industries to receive this recognition. Bob Shively, Southeast regional sales and marketing manager, accepted the award on behalf of Phillips Industries.
To determine the recipient of this award, NAPA Heavy Duty regional managers evaluate their top suppliers on criteria that assist NAPA in meeting their customers’ expectations. Phillips Industries again this year received the highest overall rating from this group of NAPA managers for their professionalism, knowledge and the support given to the NAPA stores.
“Phillips Industries really covets this award because it comes from such a successful organization as NAPA and because we are judged against some of the largest and best suppliers in the industry,” says Bob Phillips, chief executive officer and president of the Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based company. “We continuously strive to meet NAPA’s demands. Everyone at Phillips should be extremely proud that we’ve succeeded in that effort again this year.”
