The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced that the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) has joined as an associate member.
“I’m particularly excited about APRA joining ASA,” said John Scully, ASA’s executive vice president. “This relationship with a well-recognized partner to the industry will increase our ability to fully serve all segments of our membership base, while exposing members of APRA to the many benefits and services available through ASA membership.”
Bill Gager, APRA president, said: “Our members have much in common with the members of ASA because, in many cases, ASA members are the customers of our members. As the two associations begin to work together to share information and resources, I’m sure we’ll see some opportunities that will eventually assist our members in working closer together. We all have the same desire, and that is to provide quality products and service to the motoring public.”
APRA is a non-profit trade association serving more than 1,000 companies involved in the $35-billion-per-year motor vehicle parts remanufacturing industry. Remanufacturing is the ultimate form of recycling. This industry segment helps the environment in a number of different ways including the conservation of energy, raw materials and landfill space, as well as the reduction of air pollution.
ASA’s associate member category is designed for those companies or groups that supply goods, services or equipment to the industry. ASA’s full list of associate members can be found at www.ASAshop.org.
