ASC Industries, Inc., has been recognized by the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Inc., as Outstanding Private Label Supplier of the Year for 2004 and was also recognized for Outstanding Shipping Performance. The awards were presented by Dick Morgan, president of the Alliance group during their December 7 meeting in Florida. Accepting the award on behalf of ASC Industries was senior national manager/Southeast Mike Heid. "Although ASC has been recognized as the approved vendor for Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, for less than two years, they have proven themselves to be an extremely dependable vendor with outstanding quality products," said Dick Morgan. "It has been a pleasure to work with the ASC personnel, as well!" Jeff Sandt, vice president of sales for ASC said, "The mere fact that ASC was considered for one award is an honor but to be acknowledged in two separate categories is flattering. Everyone at ASC is proud to be the recipient of the Alliance’s Order Fill and Private Label Vendor awards. We are a small manufacturer who believes in giving all customers what they want — service, availability and quality. We take great pride in receiving these awards." "We at ASC pride ourselves for our ability to maintain and continually improve upon our order fill rates," noted Ted Swaldo, president of ASC Industries. "Our quality management system is very important to us, not only for order fill, but in every aspect of our business. We are honored to be recognized by our partners in the Alliance and truly appreciate their business and trust in ASC."
