Sogefi triumphs at key industry awards shows

Autoparts Awards WinnersSogefi Aftermarket Business Unit has hailed a successful start to the year by winning awards at both Autoparts UK and Motor Parts Direct shows, confirming the company’s position as a world-leading OE and aftermarket filter specialist

The established distributor Autoparts UK announced Sogefi as ‘Supplier of the Year’ at St Andrew’s Sporting Club’s Annual Burns Night event, where invited suppliers and customers enjoyed a night of celebration and networking, alongside the announcement of the coveted award, as voted for by its branch managers.

The evening, held at Radisson Blu in Glasgow, was deemed a great success, with the suppliers enjoying a traditional, Scottish five-course meal in honour of Burns Night and former IBF world middleweight champion, Darren Barker, attending as the event’s guest of honour.

Autoparts UK has more than 21 years’ experience in the automotive aftermarket sector and is always eager to commend the suppliers that provide exceptional service and adopt a professional approach throughout the year.

“It was great to get together with some of the best suppliers in the industry”, said Craig McCracken, Group Factor Manager. “It’s important we reward those companies who work hard throughout the year as their efforts help support the activity of our 12 strong branch network. Once again, it was a fiercely close competition but ultimately, Sogefi’s hard work and commitment earned them this year’s award.”

Sogefi has also added another accolade to its collection with news that it has won the ‘MPD Most Improved Supplier Award 2016’ as voted by the Management of Motor Parts Direct. The award was presented at the MPD conference last month at Baylis House Hotel and Conference Centre in Slough, in front of 200 people which consisted of MPD management and suppliers.

Jonathan Pritchard, Key Account Manager Sogefi UK & Ireland said: “It is a great honour to collect this award on behalf of Sogefi and everyone involved in contributing to this achievement. It feels extremely rewarding that our growing success as a leading automotive supplier in the UK aftermarket has been acknowledged and we are nothing short of delighted”.
