The Import Product and Marketing Awards are meant to recognize innovative products and marketing programs that serve the import aftermarket. Winners are selected based on stringent criteria like the reputation of the company, superior commercial success, market demand, distribution, presentation and packaging, and the highest profit potential for the distribution chain.
This is the third time in four years that the EURO Ultra-Premium ceramic brake pads which have been designed exclusively for European vehicles have bagged the award for the “Best Overall Import Aftermarket Product or Product Line.” The EURO Ultra-Premium brake pad line is fashioned from carefully selected materials for consistent, smooth stopping power, while virtually eliminating brake dust and noise.
In announcing the awards, the Import Vehicle Community, which was earlier known as the Auto International Association (AIA), considered many entries for import vehicle product and marketing solutions in ten categories.
