Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket receives Groupauto Supplier of the Year Award

Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket has won 'Supplier of the Year' as best across all categories at Groupauto's international supplier meeting in Monte Carlo. With this award Groupauto, one of the leading international trade cooperations, honored Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket as its supplier and partner of the year.

Groupauto International is one of the leading international networks for distributors of spare parts and services for passenger cars, light and heavy commercial vehicles. The organization honored the Aftermarket specialists as best across all categories with its 'Supplier of the Year' award. The business division of the Schaeffler Group – responsible for the global automotive spare-parts business – was already honored in the category 'Quality' by Groupauto International in 2012.

This award is one of the most coveted in the industry, and emphasizes reliability and mutual trust. 'A successful partnership that we depend on in the future as well,' said Michael Söding, President, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket, in accepting the award from Hans Eisner, President and CEO at Groupauto International. 'We are extremely delighted about this award, and I'm proud that Groupauto International with its customers values our long years of successful collaboration so highly. Within ten years, we've become one of the top 3 suppliers, and we see this award as recognition of this achievement and as incentive for the future as well.'
