Standard Motor Products, Inc, was presented with both the "Million Dollar Vendor" and the "Vendor of the Year" Awards at the National Performance Warehouse Second Annual Million Dollar Vendor dinner, fast expo, and customer awards held in Miami, Florida on January 10.
Larry Pacey, President of National Performance Warehouse, handed out the awards to leaders from each of this year's million dollar vendors. He said, "I want to thank everybody here tonight for all the support you've given our company this year, we truly couldn't be successful without you." SMP CEO Larry Sills graciously accepted the awards on behalf of the company.
Upon receiving the Vendor of the Year award from Pacey, Larry Sills considered, "I think one reason our two companies get along so well is that we're both family companies. "We're one of the last manufacturers that are still a family company; I'm the third generation, my son is fourth. NPW is a family company. We think alike, we work alike. We think long-term and I am so proud of you guys," Sills concluded.
