Vipar Heavy Duty sponsors Northwood Univ. students at HDAW

Jack Foster and Alexander Mazon will be at the Vipar booth at the show.

Vipar Heavy Dity announced that it will be sponsoring two Northwood University students during Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW), Jan. 22-25, in Grapevine, Texas. The organization’s sponsorship will provide hands-on experience and an immersive deep-dive into the aftermarket, as part of a program that began in 2015.

The Northwood University students being sponsored this year are:

  • Jack Foster of Commerce, Mich., a junior majoring in Aftermarket Automotive Marketing & Management and co-founder of Limitless Productions, a content development company.
  • Alexander Mazon of New York, a senior majoring in Automotive Marketing and Management, currently serving as the general chair for the Northwood University International Auto Show.

During HDAW, Foster and Mazon will assist with helping visitors at the Vipar booth (#1146) during the Product Expo, attend meeting and networking functions with distributors and supplier partners, and experience the show floor and many educational sessions.

“HDAW provides a near 360-degree perspective on the scale and scope of the aftermarket – including the many diverse and fulfilling career opportunities within it,” said Jeff Paul, Vipar Heavy Duty family of companies’ vice president of marketing. “The program is very successful with introducing exceptionally talented students to the companies and people that make this such a great industry. We’re proud of our longstanding partnership with Northwood University and contributing to help foster future generations of aftermarket leadership.”
