Auto Care ACE Award

Arnold Motor Supply Awarded (ACE) Auto Care Career & Education Award

The Auto Care Career & Education (ACE) Award recognizes auto care companies dedicated to excellence in education. Award-winning companies are acknowledged as leaders in the industry. The Auto Care Association promotes the winning companies as examples of what leading companies are doing, outlining their successful programs, and sharing the return on investment each company experiences. This year, Arnold Motor Supply was recognized.

For more than 90 years, Arnold Motor Supply has followed closely to the mantra of its founder E.P. Arnold: “You don’t build a business with buildings, brick, and stone. You build it with people.”

"This year has presented some unique opportunities for our company to dig deeper and push the boundaries with our training and education offerings for associates and customers. That's why we are so honored to be a recipient", says Eric Johnson, Vice President at Arnold Motor Supply.

Arnold Motor Supply has a “grow your own” mentality that drives them to push the boundaries with their training and education offerings for associates and customers. The company puts its people first by investing in a variety of training and development resources, such as internal and external courses; a dedicated training budget; a training center equipped with a paint and blending room, underhood/undercar training, and refinish and industrial coatings application instructions; and much more.

We encourage associates to attend and be active members in industry associations, seminars, expos, and networking events. Several associates are members of regional associations such as Iowa Collision Repair Association, Midwest Auto Care Alliance and AERA Engine Builders Association.

Highlighted educational opportunities include, lunch & learn training sessions, Northwood University’s Leadership 2.0, WIX Filtration School in North Carolina, East Penn Manufacturing training and facility tour, Standard Motor Products and Bosch diagnostic clinics, PPG certification, and recertification, 3M product and application training, ASE certifications, Alliance University training, and Dale Carnegie leadership development.

Arnold Motor Supply supports and has invested in virtual options for training and meetings across their organization. This flexibility has allowed for continued support and education during the unforeseen circumstances that impacted business across the United States this year.

"It is especially humbling to receive the Auto Care Career and Education award this year. Challenging circumstances such as those we've all faced in 2020 only serve to magnify how vital good people are to any organization. We are thankful for the people we have the opportunity to invest in and grateful to be recognized for those efforts," said Johnson.
