Continental has named Todd Lemmens, owner of TML Auto in Appleton, Wisconsin as the Elite RPM Grand Prize Winner for 2016.
Lemmens, customer of warehouse distributor Factory Motor Parts, received $2,500 in his choice of gift cards, a $100 Subway gift card and two RPM logoed counter stools.
“It was pretty cool,” said Lemmens. “I was just sending in my UPC panels to put points into my account, and never expected to win the big prize.” When asked about his plans for the counter stools he said, “they will go straight to my Parts Department.”
The Continental Elite RPM Club is a program that rewards members (shop owners and professional repair technicians) with merchandise and gift cards for purchasing and installing Elite branded aftermarket products. Members send in UPC panels and earn points for products like Elite Poly-V belts, V-belts, timing belts, timing belt kits and Poly-V tensioner kits. Points accumulate and can be redeemed for valuable gifts.
“We’re pleased to continue to reward our technicians and shop owners like Todd for their loyalty to the Continental Elite brand,” said Tom Lee, marketing manager at Continental ContiTech. “We’re committed to our technicians and will continue to look for ways to improve the Continental Elite RPM Club program in the future.”
