VIPAR Heavy Duty held another successful Supplier Advisory Council meeting last month in Chicago. The group, composed of senior executives from VIPAR Heavy Duty supplier partners and designed as a collaborative forum, met to discuss key topics such as technology related to parts distribution and supporting national fleet accounts and end-users.
“The VIPAR Heavy Duty Supplier Advisory Council gives our management team the opportunity to meet with industry leaders to identify strategies and tools to support the success of our distributors and supplier partners, ultimately impacting our combined end-user customers,” said Jim Pennig, vice president of business development, VIPAR Heavy Duty. “We value the feedback and information from our council members and, through our collaborations, we have made great strides over the past year.” This is the third meeting of the Supplier Advisory Council since its inception. The group meets on a regular basis to share ideas and address key industry topics. The council was formed in 2018 to help ensure that the organization is properly aligned with the market dynamics for the long-term success of the VIPAR Heavy Duty family of companies, its distributors and supplier partners. The next meeting will be held during the VIPAR Heavy Duty Annual Business Conference in October. For more information on VIPAR Heavy Duty, visit www.vipar.com or email: [email protected].
