Being a member of APA has given me the opportunity to grow as a businessman and leader.
We are looking forward to growing with the APA family. Sharing ideas with fellow members has already helped us strengthen our relationships with vendors and customers.
Buying together is APA’s greatest strength, we are able to grow our business and serve our customers with competitive pricing from the program rebates and patronage dividends APA offers.
One of the things we like best about APA is the camaraderie between members and that we are more like business partners. Everyone is excited to collaborate and share experiences with each other. While the financial benefits of being a part of a program group are a priority, we profit the most from the knowledge we gain from interacting with other members and support from headquarters.
I’ve been fortunate to work with the APA HQ Staff, Board of Directors and APA Members for several years. The APA group is genuinely concerned about doing a great job helping their members be successful in growing their parts businesses profitably – while being great to work with at the same time.
APA is like family. They appreciate their suppliers as much as we appreciate them. It is the true meaning of a partnership, and everyone associated with APA from shareholders to Headquarters staff are the epitome of industry professionals.
APA combines years of knowledge and understanding of the marketplace in a changing industry with a proactive approach toward future advancements, while maintaining a happy “family” atmosphere within the organization, proving relationships are still an important part of the success equation for their members.
