B.C.-based parts distributor Lordco Auto Parts was honoured with an Active Participation Award at AAM Group’s annual Membership Meeting.
Held May 9–11 in Frisco, Texas, the AAM event honoured members in five individual categories – Active Participation, Growth as a Percentage, Marketing Participation, Participation in Group Buys, and PRO Rebates Participation – as well as choosing an overall annual winner.
The organization’s top prize, 2023 Member of the Year, was awarded to AllPro Distributing. In recognition of its win, AllPro Distributing received a custom trophy and an exclusive painting commissioned from automotive artist Jim Caswell.
“We are just so proud of our team,” said AllPro Distributing owner Danny Harrell. “Each employee plays a huge part in our success. They believe in what we are doing at AllPro, and we believe in them. After acquiring Weathers, we had to make a decision about joining AAM.
“I strongly believe our choice to join has continued to move our company in a really positive direction. Having access to the great team at AAM, the member WDs and suppliers have helped us grow and offer better service to our customers.
“We are very honoured to receive this award and feel privileged to be a part of this group. Thank you!”
“I love it when a member strives to achieve the Member of the Year honour,” said AAM President Tim Odom.
“The AllPro Distributing team made that decision and well-earned this distinction, purposefully engaging in group programs and excelling in the five criteria on which members are scored. Their performance placed them in the front of a pack of many positive contributors this year.”
