TORRANCE, Calif., – November 10, 2022 – ADVICS, the leader in advanced braking technology, won an Automotive Communications Award at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) 2022 for “Best B2B Social Media Campaign,” for its social media launch of the brand’s new, ultra-premium brake fluid product category.
The goals of the campaign were to introduce the new brake fluid product category to warehouse distributors (WDs) and those responsible for making parts purchases at the shop level, educate on product features and benefits and provide technical product education in the form of tech tip articles and videos.
