Posted on April 17, 2014

Automotive Parts Associates Inc. (APA) has announced that All European Auto Supply Inc. is its newest member.

All European was established in 1994 in Royal Oak, Mich., and today stocks the largest inventory of exclusively European parts in the Midwest, notes APA. In addition to its strong Michigan‐based business, the company sells online nationwide through its website, www.alleuro.com.

“We are proud to be a member of an association that has such a fine group of like‐minded people. It is also refreshing to see manufacturers that recognize how the small and medium size warehouses create balance and help to round out their sales,” said Luke Wright, vice president, All European Auto Supply.

“We’re pleased when growing independents recognize APA’s membership benefits and make the commitment to become shareholders,” said Vice President of Program Development, Bill Cook.

Automotive Parts Associates is a member‐owned cooperative made up of over 110 member shareholders, distributing auto parts from 186 warehouse locations with a total of 412 company-owned stores. APA says its shareholders create over a billion dollars of purchasing power annually.
