Nov. 20, 2020—The Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) Board of Governors and the HDDA: Heavy Duty (HDDA) Advisory Council have officially joined forces, uniting as one of the Auto Care Association's largest communities, according to a press release.

With recognition that the challenges facing heavy-, medium- and light-duty aftermarket distributors far outweigh the differences between the two aftermarket communities and after months of coordination to unify community under the Auto Care Association umbrella, the newly-merged group will be referred to as the Aftermarket Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA).

“Although distributors compete in a free and open marketplace, the challenges they jointly face demanded that all aftermarket distributors and their great suppliers work together to present a unified voice to counter the well-established threats that we face from vehicle manufacturers, overzealous government regulators, massive online parts sellers and other forces yet unseen,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association.
