Turn 14 Distribution Earns Major Awards At SEMA Show—WD Of The Year, & Gen III Innovator Of The Year For Jon Pulli
Turn 14 Distribution was named Warehouse Distributor of the Year at the SEMA Show, while Jon Pulli, Turn 14 Distribution’s CEO, was presented with the SEMA GEN III Innovator of the Year Award for 2018.
The WD of the Year award is designed to honor one Warehouse Distributor each year for its outstanding contribution to the motor vehicle aftermarket during the previous 12 months. The SEMA Gen III Innovator of the Year Award serves to recognize youthful innovators whose work is substantially changing the way the automotive aftermarket is doing business.
“Winning WD of the Year for the second time in three years is an immense accomplishment. I am proud of Turn 14 Distribution’s employees, vendors, and dealers for their ability to work together cohesively so that we can all prosper. With that said we are not done yet, we have plans in store and will continue to shape our industry,” said Pulli.
Since earning WD of the Year in 2016, Turn 14 Distribution has been focused on exceeding its goals as well as its customers’ expectations. In 2018 alone, Turn 14 Distribution has opened not only their new 272,000 sq. ft. Arlington, TX Distribution Center, but also moved the Reno, NV Distribution Center to a brand-new 178,000 sq. ft. modernized facility, significantly increasing the company’s overall warehouse footprint while decreasing shipping times nationwide. Additionally, in 2018, Turn 14 Distribution added nearly 30 new brands, introduced new API functionality, and expanded its full operations to six days a week, allowing Turn 14 Distribution to assist customers and ship packages on Saturday, an industry first.
Jon Pulli has been at the helm of these achievements, driving Turn 14 Distribution to continue to innovate and lead with industry firsts. For his dedication to leading innovations in the industry, Pulli earned the SEMA Gen III Innovator of the Year Award for the first time in 2018.
In his acceptance speech Jon Pulli gave credit to Turn 14 Distribution’s co-founder Chris Candido and the company’s staff, noting, “While I am honored to personally receive this award, I feel Turn 14 Distribution as a whole is the real recipient. I would not be here without co-founder and CTO Chris Candido. I would also like to thank all of my staff for their commitment to excellence. I promise that through innovation Turn 14 Distribution will continue to lead by example.”
