Honor Recognizes Excellence in Business Performance, High Standards


WIX® Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, was awarded the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association’s (AWDA) 2015 Pursuit of Excellence Award during last week’s conference in Las Vegas.

“WIX prides itself on its exceptionally high standards and unyielding commitment to quality,” said Keith Wilson, president and chief operating officer for Affinia Group. “These characteristics extend from our products all the way through our business partnerships. We wouldn’t be who we are today without these relationships, so it is a great honor for us to receive such a prestigious award.”

Established in 1983, the annual Pursuit of Excellence Award is presented exclusively to AWDA member companies (or their employees) and recognizes superior business performance and the setting of high standards for others to follow in the auto care industry.

“WIX Filters is very highly respected by many in the auto care industry,” said Larry Northup, executive director of AWDA. “WIX’s ongoing dedication, strong customer service and extensive training resources make it extremely deserving of this award.”

Later in the week, WIX received Auto Plus’ 2015 Manufacturer Partnership Diamond Award during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX), also held in Las Vegas.
