Prominent Russian automotive award to Lesjöfors 04 January 2022

The Lesjöfors brand has won the World Automotive Component WAC (Russia MAK) 2021 award for “contribution to the development of the automotive components industry”.

More than 5,000 people at the auto component exhibitions in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Yekaterinburg voted for the nominees. There was also a separate expert council including representatives from government authorities, heads of wholesale companies, scientists, analysts and journalists voting separately. And when everyone had casted their votes, Lesjöfors was the winner.

The award ceremony took place among many well known manufacturers and key players in the spare parts market.

The evaluation criteria of the WAC / MAK-2021 award nomination was the convenience of deliveries, availability of brand products for distributors and the availability of goods on sale. The high product quality and the level of consumers were also important factors.

Sergey Chumakov, marketing manager for Lesjöfors Russia comments on the award: “Lesjöfors Russia has been making sure to supply our motorists with products for at least 10 years. We are one of the few suppliers that have our own product warehouse, where 99% of our assortment is always in stock. We are very proud to receive this quality mark for our dedicated work and the future for Lesjöfors in Russia looks very bright.”
