The 51st annual Cavalcade of Customs held Jan. 7-9 in Cincinnati was a huge success. Sponsored by KOI Auto Parts and Federated Auto Parts, the custom car show and training expo received tremendous feedback from the public as well as KOI’s service provider customers.
“We had another great show and we want to thank our customers and our manufacturing partners for helping make it a very successful show,” said Dave Wesselman, president of KOI Auto Parts. “This was a wonderful event for the public because they got to see some cool custom cars. For our customers, it was a great opportunity to participate in some truly innovative training seminars.”
Forty-eight training classes were offered by ACDelco, Denso, Four Seasons, Standard, Bosch, Motorcraft and Dorman. Manufacturers set up booths outside the classrooms so KOI customers could learn more about supplier product lines.
“We bring in new classes each year to keep up with the ever-changing automotive technology, and more than 600 customers attended them,” said Wesselman. “We also had training set up for our own employees, of which 170 took part. We awarded prizes to our employees and our customers, and we want to thank our vendors for their participation and generosity.”
Headquartered in Cincinnati, KOI’s business serves more than 10,000 customers. KOI has been a Federated Auto Parts member since 1987, offering world-class service to its professional service customers for more than 60 years.
