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.
