The Meineke Dealers Purchasing Cooperative Inc. (MDPCI) has announced Advance Auto Parts as the winner of the 2021 Vendor of the Year Award.
Advance has been a member of the Meineke Dealers Association (MDA) and the MDPCI Co-op for many years. Over the past few, Advance’s program has grown at “unprecedented rates,” according to the MDA and MDPCI.
Vendor of the Year is selected based on survey results from the Meineke dealer group and is awarded based on criteria ranging from the cost and quality of parts and services to the overall ease working with the vendor. One of the key measurements is overall satisfaction with the vendor and their program.
“The growth of our program with Advance has been tremendous over the past year,” said Ron Soto, executive director of the MDA and MDPCI said. “It is a testament to the true partnership they have provided our dealers and the delivery of the commitment they made to the MDPCI to help increase profitability of the Meineke Service Centers nationwide. Advance has developed an exceptional program working with the MDPCI as partners, and helped Meineke dealers across the country. We look forward to continued growth in 2022 and beyond.”
“On behalf of the entire Advance Professional team (Advance, Carquest, Autopart International and WorldPac) that supports Meineke Dealers every single day, I’d like to express how honored we are to be named Vendor of the Year for Meineke Dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada in 2021,” said Pete Masini, director of strategic accounts at Advance. “Moments like this do not typically happen by accident, and it takes an effort on both sides to build partnerships like the ones we have with our Meineke partners.
“Our relationship has been a journey to reach this point, and every day, more and more Meineke dealers are giving Advance Professional the opportunity to earn their business. Thank you for your support. Our promise is to continue our passion for providing you with industry-leading service that you can rely on, quality parts, solutions to support your business growth, and a partnership to last for many years to come.”

The annual awards banquet spotlights top scorers on the ASE certification tests.
Forty-one companies from both OEM and aftermarket segments sponsored individual technician recognition awards in the Auto, Truck, Collision, Bus, Parts and Service categories, along with awards for instructors. In addition to top scores on the ASE tests, award sponsors look for on-the-job excellence and community service when selecting honorees.
“ASE has recognized the best of the best in our industry for more than 40 years, and this year we honored 48 outstanding individuals from across the nation,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “We couldn’t do this without the support of our award sponsors, who include some of the best-known names in the industry. Their commitment to excellence is reflected in the talented individuals receiving these awards. The enthusiasm and professionalism displayed by our award winners testifies to the high-quality of ASE-certified technicians and specialists. We are proud to have them as part of the ASE family.”
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was established in 1972 as a nonprofit organization to help improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians and parts specialists. Today, there are approximately a quarter of a million ASE-certified professionals at work in dealerships, independent shops, collision repair shops, auto parts stores, fleets, schools and colleges throughout the country.
