ALLDATA Joins The ADPA In Its Mission To Ensure Fair Access To Automotive Data And Information

ALLDATA engages in advocating access to technical information and in paving the way for independent data publishers serving the European automotive aftermarket.




ALLDATA Europe GmbH, an affiliate of ALLDATA LLC, an AutoZone company, has joined the European Automotive Data Publishers Association (ADPA) to help drive legislation that will allow publishers to provide innovative, technological, multi-brand solutions to the aftermarket.

As an ADPA member, ALLDATA joins many leading organizations in Europe seeking access to automotive data and information. With more than 30 years of business in the United States, ALLDATA has a legacy of being an innovative data solutions provider, helping workshops to be their most successful – a track-record the company aims to replicate with its customers in Europe.

“We are pleased to align with the ADPA and work alongside other distinguished industry players whose mission is to provide solutions to aftermarket workshops, so they may deliver diagnostic and repair services to their customers that meet quality manufacturer standards,” said Kevin Culmo, managing director ALLDATA Europe GmbH and group vice president, ALLDATA LLC. “Our goal is to collaborate with the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Europe as we have done successfully in the U.S. to ensure the sustainability of independent workshops and garages across Europe.”


ADPA President Ralf Pelkmann added, “It is proof that ADPA is seen as the right forum for independent automotive data publishers to join forces to take care of important issues impacting their business.”

ALLDATA has provided ALLDATA Repair to more than 6,500 customers in the European market since it launched at Automechanika in 2014. Today, ALLDATA Repair contains 22 brands covering more than 850 models and 37 million articles of detailed procedures and diagrams.
