WIX Filters Hosts Alliance Service Center Advisory Council Meeting in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – WIX Filters is hosting this spring’s Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Service Center Advisory Council (SCAC) meeting in Charlotte, N.C., which kicks off today, April 24, 2019. In addition to the 10 Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper SCAC members who flew in from both the United States and Canada, several key staff members from Alliance headquarters are in attendance as well.

“This meeting is a unique opportunity for us to get together with some of our top shop owners and really take a deep dive into what makes Auto Value or Bumper to Bumper their preferred parts supplier,” said Pat Winters, chairman of the Alliance’s Sales & Marketing Committee. “The feedback we receive at these meetings gives us the edge as a program group.”

During the three-day meeting, attendees plan to discuss challenges with the Alliance’s Certified Service Center (CSC) program and brainstorm improvement opportunities. As some of Auto Value, Bumper to Bumper, and Confidence Plus’s top shop owners, the SCAC members bring unique perspective and profound insight to the discussions.

Additionally, WIX Filters is treating the attendees to a facility tour, meet and greet, as well as a minor league baseball game, meals, and much more. One highlight in the coming days will be an informative focus group administered by WIX.

“WIX Filters is a tremendous manufacturing channel partner for Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper,” stated JC Washbish, vice president of marketing for the Alliance. “WIX is a fantastic hosts and will surely benefit from the candid feedback of these top shop owners. As our host, they have the exclusive opportunity to meet with these folks and get some serious one-on-one time.”
