Federal-Mogul’s Wagner Brake Products brand has been unanimously selected as 2005 Parts Vendor of the Year by Monro Muffler Brake & Service. The Wagner brand’s selection as Parts Vendor of the Year took place at Monro Muffler Brake & Service’s recent national sales meeting.
“We’re very pleased to be honored by one of the most successful service chains in North America,” said Dan DiTommaso, director of sales, Aftermarket-East Zone, Federal-Mogul. “This award is emblematic not only of the success of Wagner products with Monro’s business operations, but also of the performance of Wagner products in the thousands of passenger vehicles serviced each year by Monro service locations.”
Monro began to change over all of its store locations to Wagner and Federal-Mogul’s QuickStop brand of replacement brake pads, linings, hydraulics, rotors, drums and other brake system components in late 2004. In addition to QuickStop, one of the key Federal-Mogul products now installed through every Monro location is the premium Wagner ThermoQuiet one-piece brake pad.
“ThermoQuiet and other Wagner innovations are helping service dealers capture larger shares of the brake repair category through exceptional product performance and reliability and first-to-market application coverage,” said Joe Stephan, marketing director brake, chassis and fuel system products for Federal-Mogul.
The Wagner product line features exclusive aftermarket-engineered innovations that help ensure superior product performance. The only replacement friction technology to receive the prestigious Automotive News PACE Award for Production Innovation, Wagner ThermoQuiet replacement brake pads help shops eliminate brake-related comebacks through an exclusive combination of engineering features.
