Airtex wins Web Catalog Award at 2013 NCMA Conference
Airtex Fuel Delivery Systems was recently awarded the National Catalog Managers Association (NCMA) President's Award for Catalog Excellence.
The company has won the paper catalog category before, but this marks the first time in its 77-year history that the company won the Web Catalog - Gold Award for 2012-2013 for their online catalog, www.FuelPumpU.com.
The NCMA President’s Catalog Excellence Awards recognize the best examples of printed and electronic cataloging in the automotive aftermarket. Winners are chosen annually and recognized at the Knowledge Exchange conference in April. Web and mobile applications are evaluated on criteria such as design, navigation, use of technology, innovation, interactivity and quality of content.
The award is the highest honor given by the NCMA, a professional society within the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), dedicated to the interests of automotive aftermarket catalog managers. Founded in 1974, the NCMA is comprised of over 200 catalog, product management and marketing professionals from manufacturers, distributors and retailers around the country.
