LAS VEGAS (Jan. 25, 2012)—Two major heavy duty aftermarket associations, the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network and the Heavy Duty Distribution Association, have announced an agreement to collaborate to strengthen the independent heavy duty distributor market, according to the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association.
The HDDA is an AAIA affiliate. While it and the CVSN will remain separate organizations, the agreement will allow both to take advantage of AAIA programs, AAIA said. These programs include market research, public relations, communications, education, legislative and regulatory affairs, governance, and publications, it said.
The HDDA and CVSN made the announcement in Las Vegas, at the opening of Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week.
