The Federal-Mogul Vehicle Component Solutions organization received the 2012 Outstanding Training Support Award from the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance during the group’s winter shareholder meeting earlier this month in Aventura, Fla. The Alliance is one of the world’s largest automotive parts distribution and marketing organizations.

The Outstanding Training Support Award recognizes the supplier that best supports the technical training needs of each Alliance shareholder business and the more than 2,300 affiliated auto parts stores and more than 2,900 certified service center locations. Federal-Mogul provides an extensive range of training programs at its state-of-the-art Technical Education Center (FM TEC) in St. Louis as well as at thousands of customer locations across North America. The company’s training program will be expanded in early 2013 with the introduction of a sophisticated in-market product, brand and technical support platform for vehicle service providers. The new platform features teams of ASE-certified specialists and sophisticated technical support vehicles that will be deployed to key markets across North America.

“We are committed to providing the most effective and accessible technical training for our distribution partners and the tens of thousands of businesses and front-line automotive professionals who specify and install Federal-Mogul products each day. The Alliance award is a clear indication that our investment in training pays impressive dividends for distributors and their customers and complements the value of our industry-leading brands,” said Jay Burkhart, senior vice president, global markets, Vehicle Component Solutions.

In addition to FM TEC and the extensive new in-market training and support platform, Federal-Mogul offers a real-time electronic information system at www.fme360.com, which enables distributors and service professionals to access the latest news regarding the company’s products and programs as well as an extensive virtual library of technical resources and other business-critical tools.
