The Automotive Parts and Services Association (APSA) is a trade association made up of members who are engaged in the Automotive Aftermarket Industry throughout the chain of distribution from the manufacturer to the ultimate consumer. APSA was originally founded on October 11, 1932 as the Automotive Wholesalers of Texas. Over the last few years, through a series of mergers, APSA has grown from a single state association to a ten state regional association including: Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming.

Because of the increase in the number of members, APSA is able to provide the quality programs and benefits presented on this website. One of those benefits includes our lobbying services which, through the APSA Political Action Committee (PAC), allow us to give our members a voice at the Capitol. The PAC is the monetary support arm of APSA’s successful Legislative efforts. Another of those benefits includes the Educational training we are able to provide through our partnership with automotive training and technology institutes across the country. In addition, our scholarship trusts are able to provide scholarships to those looking to join the automotive industry after school.

APSA offers a wide variety of member benefits and Services. We have partnered with some of the best programs and companies in the country in order to provide our members with great benefits. These such services include everything from a free legal care program to hotel discounts, credit card processing, federal wage and labor law posters, business supplies, business products and more. In addition, we also sell a wide range of Insurance products which includes everything from Workers Compensation to Health and Life Insurance. Our staff understands and cares about your insurance needs and that is why we use only the best companies with the most comprehensive coverage.

The automotive industry has changed immensely in the last 80 years and over the years, APSA has changed with it. Our members own this association and it only exists for their benefit. The APSA staff works tirelessly for the members and are dedicated to that effort.

After 85 years, APSA closed its doors April, 2017.
