Exciting news – Openbay is a new, proud member of the Auto Care Association, the industry voice for the $300 billion plus auto care market. The Auto Care Association serves more than 2,000 member companies representing approximately 150,000 independent businesses that manufacture, distribute and sell motor vehicle parts, accessories, tools, equipment, materials and supplies, and perform vehicle service and repair.
Membership in the Auto Care Association means access to advocacy, education, networking, technology, market intelligence and communications resources to help businesses thrive. It also recently launched a Job and Career Development program, along with a job board, which we’d covered here.
The Auto Care Association produces extensive reports, including the State of the Industry report, which contained these three great facts, which stuck with us and validated our mission for Openbay to transform auto care, making it comfortable and effortless for vehicle owners and repair shops.
- “Motorists are increasingly going online for everything, including their individual auto care needs.”
- “Motorists utilizing online resources have already had a widespread impact on the auto care industry.”
- “An efficient auto-care industry helps to move businesses and the economy forward.”
In addition to the industry insight and benefits offered by the Auto Care Association, its “Be Car Care Aware” campaign, a consumer-education program about the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair, designed to provide knowledge from all segments of the automotive aftermarket industry.
We’re buckled up and looking forward to all the Auto Care Association has to offer.
