MIRAMAR, Fla. Steven Kruss, president of Auto 7
which supplies Korean-made, OEM-quality automotive parts to
distributors across North America, announced that Auto 7 has been named
an approved vendor of Automotive Parts Associates (APA), one of the
nation’s largest auto parts distributors groups.
APA is a member-owned organization of more than 110 independent
shareholders that distributes auto parts from more than 350 warehouses
and company store locations throughout the United States and Canada.
According to Kruss, APA’s decision to partner with Auto 7 makes sense.
Auto 7 offers a world-class catalog with more than 70,000 applications,
and represents the fastest growing fleet in North America Korean-made
cars like Hyundai and Kia.
“It’s a great opportunity for Auto 7,” said Kruss. “But more
importantly, it’s a great opportunity for APA members to better serve
their customers. We can help them meet the growing demand for
high-quality OEM parts for Hyundai and Kia.”
Gary Martin, APA’s president and CEO, added that it’s important for APA
to have vendors like Auto 7 that offer a valuable alternative to the
dealer. “Auto 7 gives APA members, their distributors and installers an
option in the rapidly expanding import parts segment of this growing
vehicle car parc," said Martin.
Auto 7, located in Miramar, Fla., is part of an international company
that has been in business for more than 60 years. It supplies a wide
array of Korean-made, OEM quality automotive parts that are ISO-14000,
QS-9000 or ISO/TS-16949 certified, and many of which are not typically
available in the traditional aftermarket supply chain.
