DMA Industries recently announced that Philip Champion is the new DC manager for its Tabor City, North Carolina, distribution centers.

Champion brings over two decades of expertise in warehousing and distribution operations management, quality control and health and safety to DMA, according to the company. Notably, he was pivotal in launching a startup for Newell Brands in Gastonia, North Carolina, in 2021.

His extensive background includes a long tenure with Mann+Hummel since 2001. At Newell Brands, he excelled as the outbound operations manager, strategically guiding a new distribution-center startup and overseeing returns/rebox DC operations, along with quality and HSE work teams. 

“Philip’s wealth of experience and leadership is an invaluable asset, providing essential support to our DC operations team as we navigate our new strategic direction,” said Misty Funderburk, DMA’s VP of operations.

      “Amalie’s support allowed Advance to better serve customers with a greater product choice in the light-duty, heavy-duty and diesel motor-oil categories,” Advance added.  
      Advance awarded the Together with Speed Vendor Partner of the Year Award to ITW-Global Brands in recognition of its strategic support across multiple product categories at Advance, including wiper blades, wash and wax, body repair and performance chemicals. ITW’s team supported Advance through product innovation and marketing engagement while ensuring product availability to drive sales for Advance, according to Advance. 
      Advanced named MotoRad the Excellence in Collaboration Vendor Partner of the Year.
      “Over the course of the year, MotoRad consistently showcased outstanding fill rates, product-technology innovation and creative solutions that include data-driven product recommendations,” Advance said in a news release. “Their proactive problem-solving strategies boosted the overall efficiency and effectiveness of Advance’s operations, ultimately enhancing sales and customer satisfaction.” 
      Advanced named Sylvania the Strategic Initiative Vendor of the Year for its exceptional support of Advance’s lighting category.
