Automotive Parts Associates Welcomes Faut Automotive

Faut Automotive, a family-owned business and a full-line warehouse, has one location in Chicago.

Automotive Parts Associates (APA) is pleased to welcome its newest TruStar member to the APA family.

Faut Automotive, a family-owned business and a full-line warehouse, has one location in Chicago. After years of working at Xerox, Robert Faut decided to leave that job and open his own business in 1980.

“Joining a buying group such as APA/TruStar gives us access to programs enabling us to keep a competitive edge in the market.” said Luis Crespo, general manager of Faut Automotive.

APA President Steve Tucker added: “We are proud Faut Automotive chose APA as their partner for the future. Growing together is not just a slogan for us; it is why we are here. TruStar members get access to data solutions, marketing programs and other tools that they did not have access to as an independent. We are glad Robert and Luis have decided to join us.”

Crespo can be reached at [email protected] or 773-304-4411.
