LAS VEGAS, Nev. Service operations representatives from 12 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have confirmed their participation in the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) Fall 2014 General Meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 5, during AAPEX in Las Vegas.
The NASTF meeting is part of the new Service Professionals Program at AAPEX and presents a unique opportunity for shop owners and technicians to interact directly with OEMs to bring solutions in service information. The meeting’s featured topic is “Aftermarket Access to OEM Education Resources.”
“The addition of NASTF to the AAPEXService Professional’s Program brings the aftermarket one step closer to the OEM. Sessions on the NASTF meeting agenda like ‘OEM Education Resources’ and the ‘2018’ PC diagnostic requirements give both the automaker and the aftermarket technician insights into each other’s world,” said Kathleen Schmatz, president and CEO, Auto Care Association.
“Technicians, service writers and shop owners are the front line in our industry, and AAPEX, one of the largest gathering of repair professionals in North America, is committed to adding value for their time at the show. The addition of the NASTF General Meeting to the AAPEX Service Professionals Program is an important step in continuing the dialogue among service providers, aftermarket channel partners and suppliers so that all can innovate and win in today’s aftermarket,” said Bill Long, president and chief operating officer, Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).
