Automotive Parts Associates Welcomes 2 New Members

Automotive Parts Associates (APA) is welcoming two new members to the APA family.


Elite Automotive Services, based in Orange County, California, is an up-and-coming business started by two entrepreneurs who met while serving in the armed forces. Since starting the business approximately 12 years ago, they have expanded and have now elected to take the next steps in becoming a full line distributor. 

“We are excited that Eddie Yau and his partner Ziad Traieh have elected to join APA, and we look forward to working with them to grow their business,” APA said in a news release.

Yau can be reached at [email protected]

Detroit-based New Detroit Auto Parts LLC is owned and operated by Mike Abbas, who has a long history in the automotive aftermarket. This is his second entry in the automotive aftermarket as a distributor, and his APA membership is effective Dec. 1, 2021.

“It is truly exciting for me to see new businesses coming into our industry and we at APA are glad to be able to provide them with assistance not only in the area of vendor selections but also assist in providing IT solutions, marketing programs and a host of other services,” said Steve Tucker, APA president. 

Automotive Parts Associates is a shareholder-owned cooperative made up of more than 475 independent auto parts distributor locations throughout North America. For more information about APA or about membership opportunities, visit
