KYB Americas Corp. has once again been honored by Federated Auto Parts as its Outstanding Co-Man Vendor of the Year. NGK and Anchor Industries shared the Co-Man Vendor of the Year – Order Fill honor, each recognized for excellence in this essential aspect of the Federated Co-Man operation.

“The Federated Co-Man program is instrumental to the success of Federated and its members. This year’s winners have embraced the Co-Man philosophy and have consistently delivered,” said Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “Top honors go to KYB for overall excellence. The entire KYB team works closely with our staff to ensure that the Co-Man program functions productively for the Federated membership. It is only fitting that they be honored once again with this important award. We thank them for their partnership and continued support.

“Consistently high order fill is essential to the success of the Federated Co-Man operation. This year, our membership recognized two companies that really stood out in this category. We thank NGK and Anchor Industries for their excellent fill rates and their commitment to the Co-Man operation, day in and day out,” said Bishop.

Presented annually, the prestigious Federated Co-Man vendor awards recognize supplier partners that have shown outstanding dedication and support of the Federated Co-Man operation and programs. The Federated Co-Man enterprise began with Federated members deciding to open a jointly owned warehouse. According to Federated, the operation has seen significant growth each year since its inception, expanding numerous times to meet the rapidly growing demand of members.
