Federated Auto Parts names Weathers Motors as Shop of the Year

Weathers Motors, Inc. of Media-Lima, Pa. has been selected as the Federated Shop of the Year, it was announced today by Phil Moore, senior vice president of Federated Auto Parts.

The Federated Shop of the Year program recognizes a top shop with a demonstrated track record of excellence in such areas as customer service, quality repairs, knowledgeable staff and community involvement. Federated member Berrodin Auto Supply nominated Weathers Motors for the honor.

“All of the nominations we received for the Shop of the Year award were very impressive, but Weathers Motors stood out as the best of the best,” said Moore. “Larry and the entire team at Weathers Motors are very deserving of this honor and we congratulate them as the Federated Shop of the Year.”

Weathers Motors, Inc. began in 1922 as a repair shop servicing Model T Fords and Packards and, for many years, was a car dealership selling and servicing Chrysler vehicles. In 2009, as Chrysler went through bankruptcy, Weathers discontinued their relationship with the car company and joined the Federated Car Care network, expanding the repair side of the business that had served the community for over 90 years. Today, the company’s core mission is to provide exceptional service performed by highly qualified technicians, sell quality pre-owned vehicles and offer top tier customer service.

As the winning shop owner, Larry Weathers III will be Federated’s guest in Orlando, Fla. at the 2013 Federated National Meeting, receiving special recognition during the awards banquet.
