"Ensuring the success of independent repair and maintenance businesses is not only critical to the overall future of the automotive aftermarket, but is equally important in ensuring that the American consumer has a variety of competitive sources from which to choose for their vehicle repair and maintenance needs," said Bob Susor, president, NAPA. "The mission and principles of the Car Care Professionals Network are certainly aligned with those of the NAPA organization and we are pleased to support a group whose formation will serve as an asset to the entire industry."

"NAPA’s support of the Car Care Professionals Network is a giant step toward giving the independent service and repair shop owners a long overdue place at the aftermarket table," said Kathleen Schmatz, president and CEO, AAIA.

CCPN was created to represent, support and improve automotive service centers and provide them with a national platform. As an official segment of AAIA, CCPN members will be connected to the entire aftermarket channel: manufacturers, WDs, jobbers, distributors, program groups, retailers and state associations. This program offers unprecedented participation in grassroots advocacy in the areas of legislation, training and education, technology, market research and consumer education.
