At FCP Euro, we strive to provide the very best for our customers. Whether it’s the quality of our parts, packing orders safely and accurately, the speed of our shipping, or the overall customer service experience, we want to exceed our customer’s expectations each and every day. It takes a team dedicated to excellence to make this happen, but it takes more than just the team under the roof at FCP Euro’s facilities to achieve these results. We can’t be the best without the very best partners by our side. Whether it’s related to logistics and operations, marketing and brand support, supply chain, finance, or any other of many areas of the business, FCP Euro relies on our partners, partners who are also dedicated to excellence, to help us achieve our own goals.
In 2018, FCP Euro began honoring our very best partners with our Partner Appreciation night. We invited all of our vendors and partners, no matter how big or small, no matter the revenue, profit, or how they aided in achieving our Vision and Mission, to our headquarters in Milford, Connecticut. While all of our partners are valuable, the very best were given an award in recognition of their excellence in a specific area of our business that they so rightly earned, in front of peers and competitors alike.
In 2020, of course, everything had changed. While FCP Euro has been fortunate to continue to operate at a high level throughout the Coronavirus pandemic as an essential business, it simply would not have been possible without our many partners. With every business experiencing unprecedented challenges of their own and fighting through these to continue to strive for excellence, the idea of honoring our partners has taken on more meaning than ever. With this in mind, FCP Euro has taken our Partner Appreciation Night into the digital realm and will spend the entire week highlighting some of our most valued partners of 2020.
The categories for the 2020 FCP Euro Partner Appreciation Week awards are:
- Pivots and Problem Solving
- Continuous Improvement
- Marketing Support
- Breakout Growth
- Partner of the Year
FCP Euro checked in with team members from all across our organization to find out which partners went above and beyond in 2020, from fulfillment and purchasing, inbound, inventory, distribution, marketing, brand, motorsports, catalog, customer service, and operations. Check back daily at 5pm ET all week as we recognize the partners that helped to make it all happen.
