      Auto-Wares Group of Companies announced that Joe Stewart is its 2022 Technician of the Year.
      Stewart is the shop foreman at The Brighton Garage in Brighton, Michigan, an Auto Value Certified Service Center since April 2021.
      Every year, Auto-Wares chooses one technician from its Certified Service Center Network to represent the company at an all-expenses paid trip to the National Alliance Technician of the Year competition. This year, the competition will be held July 11-14 in Detroit.
      In 2021, the competition brought together 12 individuals from across North America, and 2022 is expected to bring together a similar number. Stewart and the other finalists will take a live custom ASE Technician of the Year exam, in which a winner will be determined based on the highest final test score. The trip also includes visits to the Henry Ford Museum and the Ford Rouge factory tour, and an opportunity to drive on the M1 Concourse track.
      Finalists were judged based on a combination of training hours attended, variety of education received, volunteer/extracurricular activity participation and passion for the industry, along with reference letters and letters of recommendations.
      “Tech of the Year brings out the best in our network each year,” said Dan Hosler, Certified Service Center program manager for Auto-Wares. “This year was no exception, and it didn’t take long to realize that Joe’s level of training, experience and professionalism is exactly what we are looking for.”
      The Brighton Garage is part of The Detroit Garage Auto Family, a group of industry-leading automotive repair shops, world-class technicians and a sales and support staff second to none, according to its website.
      “Joe is constantly growing and training as a technician and has been throughout his career,” said Daniel Groen, regional manager for The Detroit Garage. “He actively trains our new team members, pushing them to obtain professional success and pride with ASE certifications. This persistent pursuit of auto repair knowledge and growth is some of what sets Joe apart from his peers. Hybrid, electrical and diesel vehicles do not deter Joe from the industry but inspire him to gain the expertise to lead his facility – and someday multiple facilities – to the success this challenging industry can achieve.”
      Auto-Wares Group of Companies is a Grand Rapids, Michigan-based aftermarket automotive distribution company serving the Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin markets. Auto-Wares Group of
      Companies is a member of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance and does business under the Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper Part Stores name.
      Auto-Wares currently has more than 200 corporate-owned and nearly 100 independently owned part stores, and a network of more than 675 Certified Service Centers.

      NTN, the parent company of BCA Bearings, has announced the addition of 16 new product SKUs to the BCA aftermarket product line.
      BCA’s March 2022 release includes wheel hub assemblies and repair kits for a number of import and domestic applications, and represents premium coverage for more than 6.9 million vehicles in operation.
      This is BCA’s final release for the 2021 fiscal year ending March 31, 2022.
      “This final release of our 2021 fiscal year serves to keep the BCA product line aligned with the demand we see in the aftermarket.” said Rina Dafnis, assistant product manager – automotive aftermarket. “We base our product-line additions on multiple data points, and a majority of these new applications are just now coming into the aftermarket sweet spot where we begin to see the vehicle age and mileage that necessitates the replacement of the original-equipment wheel hubs.”
      The new SKUs supplement BCA’s coverage for popular Asian brands, including Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, Infiniti, Toyota, Lexus and Mazda. Also of note is added coverage for Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class SUVs, which recently began production with the 2020 model year.
      Finally, the release provides additional coverage for multiple Ford brands, including the first-generation Ford Fusion platform, the third-generation mid-cycle refresh of the Expedition/Navigator and the first generation of Ford’s high-performance F-150 SVT Raptor.

      General Motors recognized First Brands Group as a 2021 Supplier of the Year.
      GM celebrated honorees at its 30th-annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in Phoenix earlier this week.
      GM’s Supplier of the Year award recognizes global suppliers that distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements, in turn providing GM customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry. This year, GM recognized 134 suppliers from 16 countries with the Supplier of the Year distinction.
      This is the sixth time Brake Parts Inc has received the award and the fourth time Champion Laboratories has received the award; both are divisions of First Brands Group.
      “It’s always a tremendous honor to be recognized by GM as a Supplier of the Year and that’s especially the case this year, given the global supply chain challenges,” said Rich Fleming, chief commercial officer for First Brands Group. “We look forward to our continued collaboration with GM as we deliver on our commitment to supplying the highest quality products, advanced innovation and superior customer service.”
      “This year’s Supplier of the Year event was special not only because it’s the 30th anniversary of the program, but because it provided us with the opportunity to recognize our suppliers for persevering through one of the most challenging years the industry has ever faced,” said Shilpan Amin, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “These top suppliers showed resilience and reinforced their commitment to pursuing sustainability and innovation. Through our strong relationships and collaboration, GM and our suppliers are poised to build a brighter future for generations to come.”
      A global cross-functional team selected the 2021 Supplier of the Year winners based on performance criteria in product purchasing, global purchasing and manufacturing services, customer care and aftersales and logistics.

      Optronics International, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems and LED lighting for the global transportation industry, kicked off its 50th-anniversary celebration with the announcement that it will be moving its North American headquarters into a new 200,000-square-foot facility on a 17-acre campus.
      Accompanying the announcement was the introduction of a new 50th-anniversary logo and a newly revised corporate website.
      Details of the new facility, logo, website and other related developments will be presented to the industry at Optronics booth 5191 during NTEA Work Truck Week 2022, scheduled for March 8–11 in Indianapolis.
      “Fifty years is a milestone that few companies ever achieve,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International. “I’m happy and proud to say that Optronics has enjoyed five decades of continuous growth throughout a myriad of economic cycles as well as the current pandemic with its related supply chain challenges.”
      Established in 1972, the company has thrived, but Johnson points to the most recent decade as Optronics’ most pivotal, asserting that the company dramatically altered the competitive landscape in the commercial-vehicle lighting and harness business, inexorably disrupting the status quo in the process.
      “Our 2020 acquisition of USA Harness alone made Optronics one of only a few manufacturers capable of fully serving the light-, medium- and heavy-duty commercial-vehicle industry with both lighting and harness technologies,” Johnson said. “This is just the beginning of the sea change that is to come.”
      With 700 staff members worldwide, Optronics will ultimately consolidate its three current Oklahoma-based operations into the new Tulsa facility and will maintain its Goshen, Indiana, location and its USA Harness manufacturing plant in Winnsboro, Texas.
      The Tulsa campus will serve as the company’s corporate headquarters, as well as a research and development lab, assembly plant and distribution hub, and will allow Optronics to immediately expand to accommodate rapid growth. 
      Optronics also has taken the occasion of its anniversary to highlight its updated web presence and the introduction of a revised Optronics USA Harness logo, which includes a representation of the company’s signature Glo-Light lamp as a central feature. Through the remainder of 2022, the logo also will include a “50 years” designation. 
      “We’re looking forward to first publicly celebrating our anniversary with staff, customers and industry contacts during Work Truck Week 2022,” said Marcus Hester, chief marketing officer for Optronics International. “Our interactive booth will feature our anniversary graphics, highlight lighting and harness displays and enable us to access interactive content.”
      Optronics’ website makes it easy for users to select and filter information on more than 3,000 of the industry’s most advanced lighting and harness product offerings, according to the company. The site also includes a 360-degree product-viewing feature that allows users to closely examine products from all angles while accessing technical and product data.
      The website includes more than 500 recently added items, including Optronics’ “Smoke Series” lamps, new trilingual packaging and a variety of multi-function lamps, DOT utility lamps and white LED lamp products. Optronics also has a number of unique new lighting solutions now under development. 
      All Optronics LED lamps come with Optronics’ no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty that will replace any lamp if even one diode fails. When Optronics’ LED lighting is purchased in conjunction with its patented USA Plus Harnessing, the entire system is protected by the no-hassle lifetime warranty.
      “Although we try to do it in every interaction, all of us at Optronics would like to offer our deepest and most sincere thanks to our customers,” Johnson said. “Not only have they made our first 50 years possible; they have made each of them a resounding success.”
      Optronics products are available in the United States and Canada through the company’s extensive
