Europe Aftermarket named Groupauto International Supplier of the Year

During the annual convention of Groupauto International (GAUI), the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Aftermarket Sales Team was recognized with the Supplier of the Year award.

This prestigious award is given based on the outcome of a vote in which all individual GAU EMEA members rate the group's 50 OE partner suppliers. Tenneco obtained the highest rating in sales support based on a combination of technology, product offering and customer care.

GAUI is one of the largest original spare parts distribution and services networks for passenger cars and commercial vehicles in the world.

Its network covers four continents and 52 countries and brings together over 1.417 distributors, 3.985 points of sale, 5.654 garages for passenger cars and 1.133 workshops for commercial vehicles.

Maurits Binnendijk, Sales Executive Director, EUAM, who received the award on behalf of Tenneco from Hans Eisner, President and CEO of Groupauto International, said: "I am extremely proud to receive this award that recognizes the hard work and outstanding performance of the EMEA Aftermarket Sales Team."
