Arvin Meritor Selected as Manufacturer Technology Partner of the Year and Midwest Wheel Companies Selected as Distributor Technology Partner of the Year

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HDX Services, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Datalliance®, announced the winners of the inaugural 2009 Manufacturer and Distributor “Technology Partner of the Year” awards on Tuesday, September 15 at the Aftermarket Distribution Summit. Arvin Meritor was selected as the Manufacturer Technology Partner of the Year and Midwest Wheel Companies as the Distributor Technology Partner of the Year.

The awards were announced and presented to both companies during the Summit’s closing reception.

As sponsor of the awards, HDX organized an independent board of distributors to nominate four top manufacturers and did the same with a board of manufacturers to nominate four top distributors. The entire HDX distributor community voted to determine the winner of the Manufacturer Technology Partner award. The HDX manufacturer community voted similarly for the Distributor Technology Partner award winner.

Edward Kuo, Executive Director of HDX Services commented on the award-winning companies and the criteria used to select the award winners. “HDX congratulates Arvin Meritor and Midwest Wheel Companies. These two companies epitomize the spirit of this award. Both have been proactive pushing HDX-specific projects like EDI, VMI and the Price File Library, as well as creating other company specific ways to enhance their relationships with their trading partners. They have also had active representatives on HDX standards committees and continually look for new ways to benefit the independent aftermarket side of this business. The criteria used for both awards were successful technology implementation, willingness to automate processes through new technologies, technology leadership and vision, and industry advocacy. Though there were many worthy companies nominated for the awards, Arvin Meritor and Midwest Wheel truly standout as technology leaders in our industry.”
