AutohausAZ Recognized for Growth and Importance to Arizona's
Economy With Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) Award
Phoenix, AZ, October 3, 2009 -- At its 15th annual awards event
held September 17, 2009, the Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) Awards
Committee named Phoenix-based AutohausAZ one of the Top 25 Fastest-Growing
Companies in Arizona. The event recognizes the success of Arizona companies and
their importance to the state's economy.
AutohausAZ was selected for the
2009 ACE Award based on its revenue growth over the past two years, using both
actual dollar growth and percentage-revenue growth. This formula puts both
small and large companies on an even playing field.
The invitation-only event honored the 50 Largest Privately-Held Companies and
the 25 Fastest-Growing Companies in Arizona. These firms
generate combined revenues of over $15 billion per year and employ over 40,000
Arizonians and over 56,000 individuals worldwide.
"Attending the ACE Awards Banquet was amazing. It was very suspenseful waiting
to hear the results and all of us were overwhelmed with excitement when
AutohausAZ's name was announced," says Helen Crippes, Office Manager, who's
been with AutohausAZ for more than 13 years.
For AutohausAZ, a leading worldwide online retailer of
original-equipment automotive parts, news of the award came just after
Inc. Magazine named them to the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest-Growing Companies in
America. In addition, Inc. recognized AutohausAZ as one of the Top 100
Businesses in the Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale metro area and one of the Top 100
Retail Companies in America. This is the second consecutive year AutohausAZ has
been named to these three lists.
AutohausAZ began in 1979 as a local European parts retailer in Phoenix, AZ (USA)
and is now an international retailer with one of the largest parts warehouses
on the web. The company sources and sells high-quality original equipment (OEM)
parts for European and Japanese vehicles to customers in over 115 countries.
AutohausAZ specializes in German car parts (Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Mini
Cooper, Porsche, and Volkswagen) and also carries a wide selection of auto
parts for Swedish (Saab, Volvo), British (LandRover, Jaguar) and Japanese
automobiles (Acura, Honda, Infiniti, Lexus, Nissan and Toyota).
