NGK Spark Plugs Associates Support Covenant House New Orleans


Recommended Posts

NGK Spark Plugs (U.S.A.) wanted to make a difference during the time spent in New Orleans for NGK’s first National Sales Meeting in three years.

The meeting started with an icebreaker and team event to kick things off, where the associates prepared hygiene kits for

, a homeless shelter.

“Hygiene products are one of our greatest needs,” said Haley Khoury, development & communications associate, Covenant House New Orleans. “Every year, over 800 youth walk through our doors in need of a place to stay and other necessities of life – including basic hygiene items. Being able to meet our youths’ immediate needs with these kits makes a big difference for us, especially when we can direct funds that would have been used for these items elsewhere. Additionally, our outreach team can give the items to folks who are actively living on the streets but are either unable or not yet wanting to come to Covenant House. In this way, the kits help us do the most basic parts of our work with people facing homelessness.”

The kits assembled contain items that many of us take for granted. They comprise recycled soap and bottled amenities discarded by the hospitality industry and repurposed through the

. The kits symbolize a fresh start and sustainability.

Through the Clean the World Foundation:

•       63 million soap bars have been distributed

•       6 million hygiene kits have been assembled

•       23 million pounds of waste have been diverted from landfills

With the help of NGK Spark Plugs team members, associates assembled 1,350 kits, each with a handwritten, inspirational note.

“Personally, I’ve never seen a team so enthusiastic putting together 1,350 kits in less than an hour,” said Carol Padgett of Accent Orleans, who helped organize the effort. “The teamwork and enthusiasm were inspirational. NGK Spark Plugs made a difference to New Orlean’s homeless and those who suffered much loss due to Hurricane Ida.”

      Arnold Motor Supply has officially opened its new Lincoln, Nebraska, location at 2811 W O St.
      Lincoln residents are most likely familiar with the West O location and its roots dating back to the early 1980s as Snow Auto Supply. Joe H. Snow served as a colonel in the U.S. Air Force for 28 years before starting the family business. His son Spencer continued the legacy in 1998 and has been managing the store for the past 25 years.
      “We’ve wanted to enter the Lincoln market for many years and have had a long relationship with Spencer Snow,” said Eric Johnson, president and managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “We’re excited to bring our automotive and commercial vehicle focus to the location while continuing the strong paint and refinish capabilities Snow Auto Supply has always provided the community,”
      Arnold Motor Supply entered into agreement with Snow Auto Supply and officially purchased the business earlier this month. The store has an extensive selection of replacement parts for automotive, heavy-duty trucks, collision (including PPG refinish paint), agriculture and fleet applications.
      “We also have the advantage of daily deliveries from our distribution centers and surrounding stores,” added Mike Molle, vice president of store operations at Arnold Motor Supply. “Having a readied supply of parts ensures that whether you’re a DIYer or professional repair shop, we’re going to get you the parts you need.”

      Advance Auto Parts announced it has opened 22 new stores in the Los Angeles market as part of the company’s broader strategic expansion into the Western United States. 
      In spring 2021, Advance announced its plan to expand into California by leasing 109 Pep Boys stores and converting them to Advance stores, more than half of which are in the Los Angeles area. 
      “We estimate that 70% of our customers in Los Angeles fit the profile of the classic do-it-yourselfer. Pairing that with the more than 7.6 million registered vehicles in Los Angeles’ unique car culture, this is a tremendous opportunity for Advance to bring care and speed to motorists through expert advice and best-in-class products and services,” said Tom Greco, president and chief executive officer of Advance. “Our timing couldn’t be better as the average vehicle age increases while used car and gasoline prices are rising, resulting in greater demand for vehicle maintenance.”
      Vehicle owners in Los Angeles and other parts of the West will gain access to everything Advance stores offer, such as free curbside and in-store pickup within 30 minutes of ordering online, as well as some of the most trusted automotive brands in the world, including DieHard, the company noted. In response to the emerging popularity of hybrid and electric cars, Advance last month introduced the DieHard EV battery – the first-to-market 12-volt battery designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles and sold exclusively at Advance.
      Advance also will support local communities and professional technicians across California by employing approximately 1,850 team members in the state when all 109 stores are converted, including staffing the company’s newly opened 45,000-square-foot “super hub” flagship location, centrally located off the 10 and 110 freeways in the Pico Union neighborhood near downtown Los Angeles. 
      With a growing need to service the approximately 14 million registered vehicles in California, including an increased number of electric and hybrid vehicles, Advance also brings the ability for professional repair partners to expand their technical knowledge with virtual and in-person training opportunities, available through Carquest Technical Institute and Worldpac Training Institute, which are developed and taught by factory-trained instructors and available to automotive technicians nationwide, Advance noted.

      Continental has introduced a new packaging design for its next generation of REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS sensors.
      Developed as part of an overall branding update coinciding with the launch of Continental’s next generation of TPMS sensors, the new packaging employs an easy-to-read product identification promoting REDI-Sensor’s performance capabilities, key attributes and overall benefits to TPMS service.
      “We’ve added a key feature to the new REDI-Sensor package to make it as informative and service ready as possible,” noted Lindsay Smith, Continental product manager. “The back panel of the new REDI-Sensor package includes a QR code that provides a quick link to the REDI-Sensor TPMS application online lookup, so customers can quickly verify that they have the right TPMS sensor or service parts for the vehicle they are servicing. The lookup allows search by vehicle year, make and model, or VIN number and also enables access to REDI-Sensor TPMS sensor installation and relearn instructions, service tips, videos, and technical support.”
      The next generation of REDI-Sensor features four multi-application TPMS sensors that can replace more than 290 different OE sensors and provide coverage for more than 168 million VIO from model years 2002 to 2022.
      The new REDI-Sensor line gives shops a significant TPMS service advantage by dramatically reducing the number of sensor SKUs needed to service incoming domestic, European and Asian vehicles, according to Continental. With only four REDI-Sensor SKUs on hand, shops are ready to provide TPMS service for virtually every vehicle that comes in.
      REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors come ready to install, right out of the box, and require no added sensor programming or cloning. They are pre-programmed from the factory and designed to follow existing OE vehicle-relearn procedures. REDI-Sensor works with most major TPMS scan tools and is compatible with TPMS features such as autolearning, pressure by position and tire-fill alert systems.
