Fleet Brake, a heavy parts distributor in Canada, gave Veyance Technologies, Inc., the 2013Manufacturer of the Year award for the company’s contributions to Fleet Brake’s business.

Veyance is the manufacturer of Goodyear Engineered Products and received the award at its annual Stampede Trade Show & BBQ in Calgary, Alberta, on July 8.

Veyance has supplied Fleet Brake with its line of Goodyear Engineered Products heavy duty parts – including belts, hose, hydraulics, tensioners and air springs for more than 10 years. Fleet Brake said this relationship has helped Fleet Brake optimize its inventory through its fleet survey program.

“Veyance Technologies has developed a valuable partnership with our team and we’re happy to recognize them at our first-ever vendor awards,” said Fleet Brake Vice President Tim Douglas. “Strong supplier relationships are very important as we continue to grow our business and we know that the Veyance team and parts will be there to support us every step of the way.”
