Killeen, Texas and Winston Salem, N.C. (Sept. 27, 2021) — Affordable Heavy Truck Parts (“AHTP”) and Repair ACES (The Association for Commercial Equipment Solutions) are excited to announce their partnership and Affordable Heavy Truck Parts’ status as a Founding ACES Affiliate. As part of its support of the association and its members, AHTP will be offering national fleet discounts to all ACES repair shop members regardless of the size of their operation or orders.
Repair and maintenance operations can now enjoy fleet pricing on parts and expedited shipping on their orders, helping to make them more profitable and able to get customers back on the road quickly.
ACES was created by industry professionals who saw a need and made it a mission to be a resource and advocacy organization to help heavy truck and commercial equipment repair and maintenance businesses thrive. ACES Repair Business Members are repair and maintenance operations, including independent shops, fleets, dealer repair shops, leasing companies, mobile repair, collision shops and truck stops. Suppliers to those businesses, such as AHTP, are also welcomed to join as Vendor Members and become affiliates by offering discounts, free products or add-ons.
The vision of Repair ACES is to give more resources and help increase profits, knowledge and professionalism. Current benefits to shops include parts discounts, free diagnostic software tool and discounts, a free website with no hosting fees, customer repair financing, free professional training (onsite and webinars), discounts on SEO, shop software, business analysis and more. View the growing list on the Association’s website.
“Affordable Heavy Truck Parts has become a Repair ACES member and Founding Affiliate because we see the vision of this association to come alongside the shops and help them succeed and grow their business. Many shops cannot negotiate parts discounts or this level of benefits on their own, and we intend to be part of this movement to raise the bar for shops and offer them real tools they want and need,” said Duane Kyrish, owner of AHTP. “As the association grows, we also plan to work with the repair members to create bulk buying discounts by leveraging the power of the membership.”
Executive director Justina Nadolson noted, “When Repair ACES researched with shops about how to help them solve problems, the lack of discounts and availability of parts came up time after time as a challenge. We knew it would be important to find a trusted partner, such as AHTP, to collaborate with to get this benefit for our members. They are investing in this industry to help launch Repair ACES successfully and make it a no-brainer financial decision for repair and maintenance businesses to join as members. We appreciate their partnership and look forward to a long relationship with them.”
