For 20 years, Trucks, Parts, Service has loved recognizing the best operations in the independent aftermarket.
Nearly 50 aftermarket businesses have been honored as finalists or crowned winner of our annual Distributor of the Year Award since 2002. We've recognized large, multi-state and regional entities and we've shined our light on small, local, single-location operations doing everything they can to serve the customers in their marketplace.
In fact, that's part of what makes Distributor of the Year such a fantastic program. We believe any aftermarket business that is committed to serving its customers deserves recognition. No company is too big or too small to be cheered, and our open nomination period was created to enable every aftermarket business in North America to earn a shot at winning our annual award.
That's why we encourage all independent parts distributors to nominate themselves for our award. We believe so many of you lead strong businesses that are essential to your communities. We believe what you do every day deserves to be recognized. But we can't honor you in our Distributor of the Year program unless you let us know.
All finalists for the Distributor of the Year Award are selected by our industry. Each year we ask the aftermarket to name the distributors most deserving of recognition, and it is from the names we receive that our finalists — and then a winner — is selected.
So if you think your operation should be one of our five finalists this year, it's up to you to let us know.
The 2022 TPS Distributor of the Year Award is sponsored by Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN), High Bar Brands' Minimizer and Premier Manufacturing, Interstate Billing Service, Karmak and Meritor.
