MAHLE Aftermarket UK has powered to victory at the IAAF Annual Awards 2019, winning the ‘Car Supplier of Excellence’ award for the second time in three years.
Taking place at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Milton Keynes on 5 December, more than 600 aftermarket personnel – made up of motor factors, suppliers, buying groups, garages and other dignitaries – were there to see the UK’s leading filter, engine components and thermal management solutions supplier take home the top award.
In a time of immense change in the global automotive aftermarket – highlighted earlier in the day at the IAAF conference, also attended by MAHLE – the victory highlights how strongly the MAHLE brand and product ranges are received by businesses throughout the UK.
In 2019, MAHLE Aftermarket UK has further enhanced its support of stockists, responding to the rising demand for MAHLE from garages and illustrating the increased requirement for quality rom technicians.
Results were decided directly by aftermarket professionals, with the industry voting for their preferred supplier via IAAF’s website.
Jonathan Walker, MAHLE Aftermarket UK Managing Director and Head of Aftermarket Western Europe (MEW), said: “We would like to thank everyone who voted for MAHLE Aftermarket and also IAAF for their hard work in championing the independent automotive aftermarket. Winning this award twice in three years is unprecedented and to have so many people in the industry vote for us is incredible. It underlines MAHLE’s commitment and passion for the automotive industry.
“This award is for everyone at MAHLE Aftermarket UK in Bilston who have worked tirelessly in what has been a very challenging year for the trade.”
