PPG names Platinum Distributor of the Year
April 5, 2011 — PPG recognized Miller Auto Parts and Supply Company its 2010 Platinum Distributor of the Year.
The award recognizes the Huntington, Pa.-based distributor for doing “an exceptional job for their customers, who benefit from the company’s expertise and outstanding knowledge of our products,” said Bob Wenzinger, director of the PPG Platinum Distributor program.
Miller Auto Parts and Supply Company has grown from four stores in 1974 to 29 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. It became a PPG Platinum Distributor in 2006.
“I am extremely elated and very proud of our entire organization and thank PPG for this award,” said Charlie Lightner, the distributor’s president. “I attribute our success to our two general managers, Jamey Robertson and Jim McGonigle, and our 250 employees. They’re very knowledgeable and we get tremendous support from everyone at PPG. This is wonderful recognition for everyone’s efforts.”
The PPG Platinum Distributor program was started in 1995 as a loyalty and support initiative for PPG single-line distributors, according to PPG. The company said the program aligns technology, training and customer support with entrepreneurship, customer awareness, local-market knowledge and service capability of the independent distributor.
