Gladstone, Mo., September 28, 2022 – The Auto Care Alliance (ACA) announces a new Corporate Partnership with the Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) to offer ACA members preferred national account pricing with an up to 8% local purchase rebate program. This is the first time the company has offered a rebate program and ACA is honored to have its members considered for the program.
The Group aligns the strategic energy of two powerhouse program distribution groups, The Pronto Network and Federated Auto Parts. Together they provide the professional automotive service centers a business toolbox that provides the essentials needed to assure overwhelming success in the marketplace.
Strengthened by more than 5,000 outlets throughout North America, The Group (under the Auto Pride, Parts Plus, Pronto, and Federated Auto Parts brands) promotes a superior selection of high-quality OE, name brand, and exclusive aftermarket products and marketing services to support the independent business owner with a particular interest in building and maintaining customer relationships.
Says Mike Peace, the Vice President of Sales & Business Development for The Pronto Network Cooperative, “The Group – The Pronto Network & Federated Auto Parts – is extremely excited to partner with Sheri and the ACA members nationwide. With the strength of the Group’s footprint, we can now service the majority of the ACA Shops with “Best in Class” high-quality name brand parts and value-added services. The Group has structured a very aggressive purchase rebate program as well as market-based national account pricing that assures the ACA shops the competitiveness they need in today’s service & repair environment.”
“We have worked with The Group as they exhibited at VISION for years and discussed ways to partner together. The Group has demonstrated confidence in the Auto Care Alliance by extending this first-ever rebate program to our members. We are pleased to welcome them as an ACA Partner and look forward to having our members discover more about their program,” says Sheri Hamilton, Executive Director of Auto Care Alliance.
