September 9, 2014

Lakeville, MN [September 9, 2014] – QA1 is proud to announce that the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) has named QA1 Customer Service Manager Dave Kass to SEMA’s 35 Under 35, a list of 35 young and rising stars in the aftermarket industry.

“It’s an honor being recognized as one of SEMA’s 35 Under 35,” says Dave. “This year’s list includes talented and hard-working people and it’s exciting to see the fresh creative ideas they are bringing to the industry. QA1 does a fantastic job investing time in young individuals who are excited about what they do, and I’m glad I get to be a part of that kind of culture.”

This is the third year SEMA has assembled this list, which highlights people with a thorough knowledge of the aftermarket industry and who are moving the industry in new directions. To be considered, the individual must first be nominated, and then SEMA evaluates each nominee based on leadership qualities, industry involvement and expertise in their particular market.

Dave has been an integral part of QA1’s success and a helping hand to many of QA1’s dealers and end users. His extensive product and application knowledge covers the full range of automotive aftermarket segments, from street rods and hot rods to vintage and modern muscle, lowriders, drag racing and even circle track racing. Whether he is on the phone with customers or talking to them at one of the numerous shows QA1 attends, Dave is always enthusiastic about each project and wants to help every customer achieve their suspension goals.

“Enthusiasts these days are putting much more of an emphasis on learning about the parts they put on their vehicles, including where the parts come from and the materials used,” Dave says in the September 2014 issue of SEMA News. “I am truly proud to work for a manufacturer that uses the most state-of-the-art equipment and materials to provide people with the highest-quality parts for the money.”

Congratulations to Dave for being named to SEMA’s 35 Under 35 and being recognized for your dedication and hard work.
