First National Battery, wholly owned subsidiary of JSE listed Metair Investments Limited, South Africa’s leading manufacturer of lead acid batteries, has been awarded a National Automobile Parts Association (NAPA) Emerald Supplier of the Year Award.
The annual convention, hosted by partners Midas, NAPA, Parts Incorporated Africa and the African Automotive Aftermarket Solutions (AAAS), was held at the Wild Coast Sun Resort in early September.
The theme for this year’s convention was ‘Power Up’ and saw 400 delegates from a range of automotive centres across the country gather to honour quality suppliers and manufacturers, while providing insights into current market conditions.
Midas, a local leader in vehicle parts and accessories, relies heavily on a network of reliable suppliers to deliver class-leading products and services – First National Battery is one such supplier.
The award was judged on excellence in quality of service and products, as well as stock availability and competitive pricing. Superiority in reporting structures and strength of sales force were also taken into consideration.
“First National Battery is delighted to receive this highly coveted title,” says Automotive Marketing Director Andrew Webb. “We strive to exceed the expectations of all our distributors – both in quality and service – which makes winning this prestigious award a testament to our dedication.”
“We’d like to thank the AAAS team and the Midas group – particularly the incredible franchisee network – for their continued support and recognition,” concludes Webb.
