AAPEX Launches Programs To Attract, Retain Aftermarket Talent


Recommended Posts

AAPEX 2022 is introducing a Student Sponsorship Program and Sponsor-a-Tech Program to help increase and retain the talent pool for the automotive aftermarket.

AAPEX will take place Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Thursday, Nov. 3, at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.

The Student Sponsorship Program aims to ultimately nourish the industry with young talent by introducing students to AAPEX and educating them on the benefits and career opportunities in the industry. In coordination with a select number of colleges, universities and industry organizations, AAPEX will identify students with plans to work in business, engineering and service and repair. Students will be invited to apply for the program and AAPEX co-owner associations – the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) – will make the final selection. Students will be sponsored by an AAPEX exhibiting company and receive a complimentary package to attend and participate in this year’s event. 

The Sponsor-a-Tech Program welcomes exhibiting companies and warehouse distributors to invite technicians to AAPEX. Technicians will receive a scholarship package to AAPEX to participate in hands-on training and live demos, visit the show floor to see new products and technologies, and attend keynote sessions and special networking events. 

To learn more, contact Bill Glasgow, AAPEX Event Management, [email protected].

      Representing “the next wave of DieHard brand innovation,” the hand tools are “made to deliver reliability and confidence that’s ideal for all DIYers, including the new, younger generation of auto enthusiasts,” Advance said in a news release.  
      “We saw an opportunity to speak to the evolving, modern DIYer who’s looking to not only explore and build their DIY skills, but also their DIY confidence,” said Jason McDonell, executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and eCommerce at Advance. “That’s why DieHard hand tools are built with innovation in mind, along with the reliability and durability DieHard is known for.”
      A new, younger generation of auto enthusiasts with different levels of DIY confidence, ambitions and passions has emerged alongside an increase in vehicle demand and retention. In fact, the auto care category is expected to grow by 4.7% between now and 2027. The DieHard hand tools were specifically made to deliver the reliability and confidence these new, modern DIYers need, Advance noted.
      “This generation builds their toolbox over time, on a project-by-project basis that creates memory after memory,” said McDonell. “We wanted to develop tools that power their full potential – from the screwdriver that helped replace a taillight to learning why a ratchet is every auto DIYers best friend.”
      Hitting shelves and online just in time for Father’s Day, new DieHard hand tools are lab-tested to exceed all industry testing standards for strength and durability, with all hand tools coming with a lifetime warranty. DieHard tools were designed with new features, including an anti-slip design on all combination wrenches; ergonomic handles on all drivers; and professional-quality, 90-tooth sealed head ratchets that will last a lifetime, according to the company.
      Since acquiring the DieHard brand in 2019, Advance Auto Parts has continued to position the brand as driving the next generation of car care. Advance has brought the 50-year legacy of DieHard batteries to a new category – tools – and recently entered the electric-vehicle conversation with the launch of the first-to-market 12-volt battery designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles, DieHard EV.
      Advance Auto Parts also began rolling out DieHard power tools, jacks and lifts online and in store late last year. In honor of Father’s Day, shoppers can take $20 off the

To further celebrate the confidence new DieHard hand tools empower, this Father’s Day, Advance identified and surprised two modern DIY dads during their first foray into DIY with their own personal hype man, Jake Fehling – the “DieHard Hype Man in a Van.” With the help of Advance, Fehling charged into each DIY moment in a DieHard-branded van to encourage those selected and power future projects with a lifetime supply of DieHard hand tools.
      The retailer’s “DieHard Hype Man in a Van” also visited a local Advance Auto Parts in Charlotte, North Carolina, to surprise and delight dads “in the wild” with their own new set of DieHard hand tools.

      The automotive aftermarket continues to demonstrate its market strength with higher-than-expected sales in 2021 in the wake of a slow economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
      Total U.S. light duty automotive aftermarket sales are forecasted to increase 8.5% in 2022, totaling $356.5 billion, according to the 2022 Joint Channel Forecast Model produced jointly by the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).
      This data will be examined in a joint,
      link hidden, please login to view led by Shane Norton of S&P Global Mobility at 1 p.m. EDT on June 9.  An additional 5% growth is expected for 2023 and growth will average more than 3% in 2024, bringing the light-duty aftermarket to $401.5 billion by 2025, according to the forecast.
      The compound average annual growth rate from 2019 to 2022 will be 5.7%, more than making up for losses seen in 2020 due to the pandemic. 
      “Year after year, the auto care industry continues to show its strength and reliability,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of the Auto Care Association. “In the midst of the highest gas prices on record and an inflation rate at a 40-year high, coupled with persistent supply chain disruptions and war in Eastern Europe, vehicle miles driven, vehicles in operation and consumer spending all increased in 2021 and are projected to increase into the coming years as well.” 
      “The automotive aftermarket once again shows its resiliency with a stronger than expected recovery from the pandemic,” commented Paul McCarthy, president and CEO of AASA. “In fact, the automotive aftermarket rose nearly 25% in the past two years despite ongoing headwinds, and we are excited to see the landmark market size of $400 billion in 2025. But as the industry advances to that landmark number, look for a new challenge to emerge as we may shift from a market supported by high demand and availability to a battle for market share. With that, we’ll see one more strength of the aftermarket emerge, collaboration with the right partners to ensure the same pace of success in this next phase of industry dynamics.” 
      Key data in the joint channel forecast model include:
      Market trends influencing the aftermarket  A 2021-2025 review of industry growth and forecasts Industry sales by channel including history and forecasts  Industry sales by distribution channel  And more The market sizing and forecast are conducted on behalf of the Auto Care Association and AASA by S&P Global Mobility (formerly the automotive team at IHS Markit), a leading business intelligence firm. The forecast is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Economic Census; IMR Inc.; and proprietary data, economic analysis and forecasting models from S&P Global Mobility.

      Vertical Development recently announced Shopify integration with ShowMeTheParts cataloging.
      “With the launch of our new Shopify integration, we bring together the industry-leading cataloging of ShowMeTheParts with the power and flexibility of Shopify online stores,” the company said in a news release. “Together, they combine to provide customers with an easy-to-implement, turnkey solution for selling auto parts online.
      “In seeking out a solution to simplifying auto parts e-commerce, we wanted to develop a truly turnkey solution. With our Shopify integration, Vertical Development is now your one-stop-shop for launching an e-commerce store.”
      One of the most difficult parts of managing an auto parts e-commerce store is ensuring key data is presented accurately and updated as changes are made. Managing auto parts data has been a core competency of Vertical Development for more than 30 years, “so we understand the complexities and challenges of presenting and selling auto parts and use quality data as the foundation for success in all we do.”
      With accurate data in place, providing customers with an easy way to find products to fit their vehicles becomes the next hurdle to successful auto parts e-commerce.
      “For our new Shopify integration, we’ve created a simplified front-end product fitment finder powered by ShowMeTheParts data,” the company said. “Visitors will enter key information into the search and instantly see available products presented to them in an easy-to-navigate e-commerce layout. Your customers can quickly review details, add the part to the cart and complete the sale.”
      Vertical Development tested a number of different solutions and “found Shopify to be the perfect solution.”
      “No matter if your team has Shopify experience or not, we are confident you will quickly feel comfortable managing the backend of your online store,” the company said.
      “Additionally, Shopify is the future of e-commerce and will continue to grow and evolve in the years to come, providing forward mobility. This can be seen in their commitment to developing the Shopify App Store which is full of apps to enhance and customize the overall e-commerce experience.”
      Vertical Development noted that Shopify “will give you complete control over the customer experience.”
      “You will no longer be selling right next to your competition, and instead will have the full attention of your customers in your custom branded store,” the company said. “Additionally, you can begin to have greater analytic insight into your core customer to inform future direct marketing, sales, or promotions efforts.”
      In addition to owning your store, Shopify’s platform supports publishing to other third-party channels. This allows you to have all of the benefits of your exclusive, brand store, while also being able to easily expand visibility to a wider audience, according to Vertical Development.
      “Whether you are an existing ShowMeTheParts customer or just getting started, we believe the new Shopify integration provides the easiest and fastest way to sell auto parts online,” the company asserted.
