PPG Announces Miller Auto Parts & Supply Company as 2010 Platinum Distributor of the Year

PPG has named Miller Auto Parts & Supply Company, Inc., as its 2010 Platinum Distributor of the Year. The award was announced at PPG’s annual Platinum Distributor Conference, Feb. 24-27 at Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, Fla. Charlie Lightner, president of the Huntingdon, Pa.-based distributor, accepted the award on behalf of the company.

“I am extremely elated and very proud of our entire organization and thank PPG for this award,” said Lightner. “I attribute our success to our two general managers, Jamey Robertson and Jim McGonigle, and our 250 employees. They’re very knowledgeable and we get tremendous support from everyone at PPG. This is wonderful recognition for everyone’s efforts.”

Bob Wenzinger, director of the PPG Platinum Distributor program, presented the award to Lightner.


“This is a much deserved honor for Charlie Lightner and the hard-working team at Miller Auto Parts & Supply,” said Wenzinger. “They do an exceptional job for their customers, who benefit from the company’s technical expertise and outstanding knowledge of our products. The phenomenal growth they’ve been able to achieve reflects their commitment to being the best at what they do.”

Today the company has 29 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. It became a PPG Platinum Distributor in 2006, shortly after electing to carry PPG paint and coating products exclusively. The company also provides parts and supplies for the mechanical side of the automotive aftermarket industry. Currently, it is heavily involved in assisting its PPG Refinish collision shop customers in the conversion to PPG waterborne products.
