AGS, GMB Earn Co-Man Vendors of the Year Honors

STAUNTON, Virginia - May 3, 2021 - The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) recognized two supplier partners for outstanding support of its Co-Man operation. AGS Automotive Solutions was honored as Co-Man Vendor of the Year and GMB North America was voted Co-Man Vendor of the Year – Order Fill.

“One of The Group’s most important programs is the Co-Man operation, and each year we recognize those vendors who pull out all the stops to ensure our Co-Man operation is successful,” said Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group. “Last year was particularly challenging for all, but with the help of the AGS team who went over and above to exceed our members’ Co-Man expectations, and the exceptional order fill rates achieved by GMB, we proudly recognize their outstanding efforts and thank them for going the extra mile.”

Presented annually, The Group Co-Man vendor awards honor supplier partners who have shown outstanding dedication and support of Co-Man operation and programs. The Co-Man enterprise began with members deciding to open a jointly owned warehouse, and the operation has seen significant growth each year since its inception, expanding numerous times to meet the rapidly growing demand of members.
