SMP Wins Waytek New Product Of The Year Award


Recommended Posts

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.”

      IMR Inc., a full-service automotive market research firm, has released its latest insight, an update from its 2021 insight on the importance of private-label and national-branded parts at independent repair shops.
      As of August 2022, more parts purchasers at independent repair shops reported knowing what brand was in the private-label box (20.8%) compared to 2021 (19.6%), with purchasers at smaller shops (one to three bays) more likely to know what was in the private-label box (22.6%) compared to larger shops with eight or more bays, where purchasers were less likely to know what was in the private-label box (16.4%).

      This year’s survey results showed that 40.8% of shops said that their first-call supplier carried mostly private-label parts with only a few national-branded parts options, which is a decrease from 2021 survey results, at 42.6%. Of that 40.8%, 19.1% said that they go to another supplier to purchase nationally branded parts, 10.3% said that they always or frequently do and 66.7% said that they occasionally do.  

      When shops were asked about the likelihood of switching their first-call supplier if it changed to offer majority private-label brands with limited national brands, only 6% of shops said that they definitely or very likely would switch, compared to 2021 survey results, where 15.2% of shops said that they definitely or very likely would make the switch. However, of the 59.2% of shops that said their first-call supplier doesn’t have heavy private-label branded categories, the number of those who would definitely/very likely switch rises to 8.8%, and another 13.5% say they would be likely to make a switch. 

      Overall, more than half of shops surveyed reported in 2022 that they occasionally go to another supplier for nationally branded parts at 66.7%, while 17.9% rarely go to another supplier. 10.3% reported going to another supplier frequently and 0% reported always going to a different supplier for nationally branded parts.

      The 2,500-mile drive from Babcox Media’s headquarters in Akron, Ohio, to Las Vegas, across the iconic Route 66, is enough to test any vehicle. But the car Babcox Media’s Joe Keene picked to rehab and drive to AAPEX isn’t just any car. It’s a 33-year-old Cadillac Brougham with more than 180,000 miles on the odometer. 
      As Keene says in the first episode of “The Road to AAPEX,” “It’s about the journey,” and the ASE-certified technician had a long road ahead of him as he brought the Cadillac up to a safe standard. With the help of aftermarket suppliers and experts, Keene conquered the leaking transmission, an air suspension that didn’t work, and a complete lack of air conditioning (which could have made a drive through the desert even longer), to name a few challenges.
      “There were a lot of things about the car that weren’t specified in the ad,” Keene said with a laugh. “It floated, the steering was all over the place, the windows didn’t work–just all kinds of things going on with it. But I didn’t want something easy. I wanted something that was going to be an ‘are you going to make it’ moment every time I get in the car.”
      Combing through junk yards, testing the counterman’s expertise in hunting down new parts for an old car, and a trip to Ohio Technical College were just a few stops Joe makes to whip the Caddy into shape. Watch the first episode above to see how Joe takes a clunker and, with expert help from the automotive aftermarket, gets it ready to tackle The Road to AAPEX.
