Automotive Recyclers Joins National Automotive Association

The Auto Recyclers of Canada (ARC) has joined the National Automotive Trades Association (NATA).

“We have looked at what NATA is trying to achieve and who they represent, and felt it was important to offer our support,” states ARC managing director Steve Fletcher. “Our members sell recycled OEM auto parts, and NATA represents the largest group of installers of those parts.

“We want to understand their needs and requirements, and make sure our parts are part of the solution. The recyclers are an integral part of the automotive repair industry. We welcome them to NATA and look forward to their input and participation,” says Dale Finch, executive vice-president of NATA.

NATA is a 59-year-old federally chartered association of associations. NATA members consist of the Automotive Retailers Association of British Columbia (ARA), Automotive Service and Repair Association of Alberta (ASRA), Saskatchewan Association of Automotive Repairers (SAAR), Automotive Trades Association of Manitoba (ATA), Hamilton district Autobody Repair Association (HARA), Automotive Aftermarket Retailers of Ontario (AARO), and Collision Repair Association of Nova Scotia (CRANS).

ARC is the national voice of the automotive recycling industry and acts as an umbrella association for regional associations across Canada.
