CVSN Becomes NASTF Partner
Jan. 27, 2016—The Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) has become a 2016 partner in the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF). Following a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Truck & Equipment Manufacturers Association (EMA) and CVSN, NASTF has begun integrating heavy duty vehicle OEMs into its programs on its website.
“We are happy to welcome CVSN into our family of Supporting Partners,” said Allen Pennebaker, chairman of the NASTF board of directors. “We thank them for becoming one of our bronze sponsors. It is through a willingness of participating entities, like CVSN, to add their resources to this endeavor, which is so vital to the health of our industry that we can bring information access to all.”
“Becoming a partner and sponsor of NASTF continues CVSN’s commitment to work with other organizations committed to the health and growth of the independent aftermarket,” said Edward Neeley, president of Truck Supply Company of South Carolina and president of CVSN.
“NASTF has been a big help with implementation of the Right to Repair National Commercial Vehicle Service Information MOU,” added Marc Karon, president of Total Truck Parts and chairman of the Commercial Right to Repair Coalition led by CVSN. “All of the OEM and supplier website links will be indexed on the NASTF site, directing commercial vehicle technicians easily to service information, tools and software. In addition, the NASTF Service Information Request feature will provide a bridge to manufacturers when the necessary service information or software is not accessible.”
