Repair Sector Forms Trade Group Repair ACES
Repair ACES (Association for Commercial Equipment Solutions) announced its launch at the Diesel Laptops Virtual Truck Repair Expo on May 7-8.
The association has been created “by industry professionals who saw a need and had a vision to be a resource and advocacy organization for heavy truck and commercial equipment repair and maintenance businesses,’’ the association said.
ACES affiliate partners have already been established, with more planned. They will help provide a variety of benefits to the members, the group said.
Corporate members will include repair and maintenance businesses such as independent shops, fleets, dealer repair shops, leasing companies, mobile repair, and truck stops. Suppliers to those businesses are also welcomed to join as allied members.
Current benefits to the membership are designed to give more resources, help increase profits and convey knowledge. Already available are benefits that include parts discounted to national fleet pricing for any size operation as well as expedited shipping on parts; rebates on diagnostics equipment; truck repair financing; free website with no hosting fees; discounts on SEO and free reporting on Internet presence and effectiveness; free and discounted training; free workplace safety platform; and networking opportunities.
“Repair ACES has been formed to assist an under-served segment of the transportation industry — the repair and maintenance businesses, with some unique benefits,’’ said Justina Nadolson who was appointed executive director of ACES. “We are encouraged by all of the excitement around this new association and look forward to building up our membership, listening to their needs, and continuing to develop new offerings to serve them.’’
