Hillsboro, N.H. – SYLVANIA Automotive, the leader in automotive lighting solutions for the automotive aftermarket and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), has received the 2017 Supplier of the Year Award from O’Reilly Auto Parts, a leading national retailer in the automotive aftermarket industry. Selected from hundreds of suppliers worldwide, recipients of this award are held to the highest standards.

“At SYLVANIA Automotive, we recognize that there is no magic bullet, no single thing we can point to and say, 'that is the reason for our success,’” said Joe Verbanic, Senior Director of aftermarket sales and marketing at SYLVANIA Automotive.

“But what separates us from others is a deep and personal commitment to our customers. We understand the very real and complex challenges they face every day and we remain intently focused on providing them with thoughtful, customized solutions. In doing so, we aim well beyond meeting their needs and set our sights on excellence. This commitment is the core foundation on which our partnership with O’Reilly Auto Parts is built. To be recognized as a supplier of the year by our long-time partner is both humbling and an honor."

The winners were announced by O’Reilly Auto Parts at its recent Annual Managers Conference in Dallas, Texas.
