Assured Performance Network Selects 1-800 Radiator as Preferred Vendor

Assured Performance Network, the network and co-op of independently owned auto body repair centers across the nation, has announced that Benicia, Calif.-based 1-800 Radiator has been selected as a Preferred Vendor. The terms and conditions of the co-op buying agreement will assist the Assured Performance Partner shops with superior service, pricing, and availability. The total program is designed to assist the co-op stockholders in their efforts to regain the profit margins they need to remain competitive and profitable in the changing market.

1-800 Radiator has over 67 locations nationwide, and is adding as many as eight new locations per month to provide localized service, personal relationships, and individual responsiveness to nearly all of the co-op partnering shops. The special service offered in the exclusive program provides same day and express service backed by their national warranty. 1-800 Radiator will also participate as a sponsor of select educational and training programs offered by Assured Performance Network.

The Assured Performance Preferred Vendor Rebate Program was launched in the spring of 2004, and includes Enterprise Rent-A-Car, 3M, 1-800 Radiator, OE regional wholesale parts dealers, as well as insurance, and paint companies.

“We are pleased to offer an outstanding national vendor to our overall offering that emphasizes local service and competitive pricing,” said Kevin Caldwell, GM/VP of Assured Performance Buying Group.
