Recommended Posts

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.”

      Standard Motor Products (SMP) announced that it is the recipient of Waytek’s 2021 Product of the Year Award for SMP’s Trombetta CAN bus power splitters and control modules.
      Each year, Waytek presents the Product of the Year Award to recognize the supplier that has distinguished itself by introducing an innovative product that delivers outstanding value. The award also recognizes the chosen supplier’s strong commitment to excellence and collaboration with Waytek.
      The Trombetta CAN bus power splitter and control modules series was selected to win the award due to its high quality, utility and quick acceptance by Waytek customers. The series enables the breaking out of CAN signals using one connector, reducing the number of required plugs, wires and harnesses.
      “Trombetta’s CAN bus power splitters and control modules are an innovative solution quickly embraced by our customers seeking an affordable, compact product for connecting multiple devices to a J1939 CAN bus network,” Waytek Chief Customer Officer Kevin Pung said. “We are privileged to work with a supplier like Trombetta who is committed to maintaining a strong relationship with us and providing valuable solutions to our customers.”
      “We are so proud to have been awarded Waytek’s New Product of the Year Award,” added Mike Hassinger, Trombetta’s director of sales and marketing. “The introduction of our new splitter products has been an exciting venture, and we strongly believe these products will emerge as the industry standard. We’d like to thank Waytek for this tremendous honor and look to a strong continued partnership in the future.”

      Advance Auto Parts introduced its No. 1 fan “Ed Vance,” representing the voice of an emerging segment of automobile enthusiasts: those learning to DIY and craving a partner on their journey.
      “In Ed Vance, Advance is providing an authentic, relatable, entertaining and category-exclusive bilingual voice to embody, represent and connect with these modern DIYers, living alongside them in their DIY journey,” Advance said in a news release. “And his name just happens to be like the brand … Ed Vance loves Advance.”
      Forty percent of motorists who maintain their own vehicles are between 16 and 34 years old, according to the company.
      “Ed’s name recognition will draw quick connection to the Advance brand and serve as a vehicle to communicate the great benefits Advance offers,” said Jason McDonell, executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and e-commerce at Advance Auto Parts. “Ed is able to tell short stories that become authentic and real and connect with a new era of car enthusiasts who have emerged during the pandemic. We leaned into this in developing Ed as ‘every person’s person,’ inspiring these motorists to try something new in caring for their automobile while accelerating our commitment to build personal connections with them.”
      “In a retail category largely seen as a ‘sea of sameness,’ Ed Vance further differentiates Advance as the need for vehicle maintenance increases parallel to the average age of automobiles in the United States reaching 12 years,” the company added in a press release.
      Ed and Advance’s “Do It Together” movement is threaded through all aspects of the new campaign, a connection-first approach guiding all marketing efforts and putting the customer journey front and center. Ed Vance is bilingual, introduced as “Eduardo Vance” to Hispanic audiences in all marketing. His persona first debuts on Instagram and Twitter (@EdVance4Advance), followed by 30-, 15- and six-second spots in both English and Spanish placed in media and on platforms relevant to the modern DIYer, including Roku, Spotify, Pandora, Twitch and more.
      Advance also recently debuted a new custom theme and sonic logo in two languages. “This is How We Advance” and “Avanza Con Advance” drive brand recognition and affinity for Advance while providing a memorable, hummable tune for DIYers.
      The arrival of Ed Vance comes as Advance celebrates its 90th “Advanceiversary” this summer by curating consumers’ most memorable moments on the road – the “Drive of Your Life” – for the chance to win a year’s worth of free Shell gasoline and possibly have their drive recreated. To submit the Drive of Your Life, motorists should visit

      Advance Auto Parts is celebrating 90 years of helping motorists advance on the road by inviting consumers to share their most memorable moments behind the wheel.
      In celebration of its “Advanceiversary,” the brand is curating consumers’ most memorable moments on the road for the chance to win a year’s worth of free gasoline and possibly have their road trip recreated. Additionally, Advance is offering quadruple gas rewards now through July 20.
      Through July 31, Advance’s “Drive of Your Life” campaign invites motorists to share their most memorable drives – from cross-country vacations with family or friends … to riding in the homecoming court … to traveling to your team’s bitter rival (and winning!) … to pulling in the driveway of your first home for the first time … to just putting the top down and feeling the breeze when you needed it most.
      To submit the Drive of Your Life, motorists should visit
      link hidden, please login to view or post on Twitter or Instagram, using #DriveOfYourLifeContest and tagging @advanceauto or @advanceautoparts respectively, now through July 31. From those who post, Advance will select and announce each day beginning July 14 one consumer who will receive free Shell gasoline for a year. After the contest ends, Advance will hit the road to recreate select motorists’ drives of their lives.
      “When we reflect on 90 years of commitment to customer care and confidence, we think about our journey behind the many miles we’ve helped motorists advance – both on the road and in their lives,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and e-commerce. “But even more so, we think about the inspiring, personal stories of those drives. We all have that one drive we’ll never forget – the ‘Drive of Your Life.’ To celebrate our last 90 years and inspire our next 90, we want to hear yours.”
      Advance founder Arthur Taubman was a pioneer in curbside service, beginning the practice by installing tires upon purchase outside the store he worked. This is the root of inspiration for many of the services Advance offers today, including free battery and wiper-blade checks and installation, along with a leading parts selection that caters to motorists’ many needs, the company noted.
      With the price of gasoline hovering around a record national average and the average vehicle age rising, Advance’s celebration comes at a time when motorists face challenges to create new memories on the road after two summers of uncertainty.
      To further help motorists save this summer, all existing and new Advance Speed Perks Gas Rewards members will earn 20 cents off each gallon of gas for a single fill-up at participating Shell stations for every $50 spent at Advance stores across the country between July 13 and 20.
