Spectra Premium earned an Import Product Award for Best Problem Solver in the Import Cars or Trucks Category at the annual Automotive Aftermarket Parts Exhibition in Las Vegas last week.
The award, presented by the Autocare Association, acknowledges the improvement of the company’s aftermarket aluminum VWP36A oil pan for VW/Audi applications.
Select Spectra Premium aluminum oil pans feature a steel drain plug insert design that significantly increases the life and function of the oil pan while maintaining the OE drain plug specifications.
“On behalf of the Spectra Premium team, I am thankful to the Autocare Association for acknowledging the importance of innovation in the aftermarket,” said Eric Renaud, corporate category manager, aftermarket at Spectra Premium. “Our team is dedicated to meeting our clients’ and consumers’ expectation of installing a durable product. One way to fulfill that commitment is to bring new exclusive features like the steel thread insert.”
The company is applying the same improvement across the majority of its aluminum oil pans. These upgraded pans include more than 130 part numbers across all makes and models.
