May 11, 2011 — The Automotive Body Parts Association (ABPA) recently awarded Bob Frayer of NSF International its Industry Award for his efforts to expand the collision parts replacement industry during the last year.

Frayer oversees the NSF Automotive Aftermarket Parts Certification Program, through which he and other engineers independently evaluate and compare the form, fit and function of aftermarket parts to original equipment (OE) parts. The program is meant to ensure that aftermarket parts meet rigid quality, safety and performance standards.

“We are always pleased when we have the opportunity to publicly recognize the achievements of individuals who quietly and proficiently advance the cause of this industry and the parts we represent,” said ABPA Executive Director Stan Rodman when presenting the award at the organization’s annual convention last month. “Bob Frayer and NSF International are playing a large part in focusing attention on the quality products which now permeate our industry and which better allow our members to compete in the marketplace. This award is our way of just saying thanks for a job well done.”

Frayer, who also oversees NSF’s engineering laboratories, said he was honored to receive the award.

“NSF and ABPA share a common mission, and that is protecting public health and safety and helping to ensure the safety and performance of auto parts contributes to that mission,” he said. “We want to help make sure safe parts are available to collision repair professionals.”
