Auto Care Association Welcomes The Filter Manufacturers Community As Newest Members

The group will join 10 additional auto care communities currently represented by the association.

The Auto Care Association has announced the addition of a new community to its membership with the introduction of the Filter Manufacturers Community (FMC). The group will join 10 additional auto care communities currently represented by the association. The formal announcement was made at the Auto Care Association’s annual Spring Leadership Days event, which took place May 9-11 at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta.

Auto Care Association communities are distinct groups of companies or individuals that can be defined by a common business function, product line, demographic trait or job description. Community members can engage with companies or individuals with whom they share traits, aspirations or commercial goals. Their unique knowledge and insight can be directly applied to the association’s overall goals and programs.

“We are delighted the Filter Manufacturers Community has made a home with us,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “FMC and the association are a perfect fit because together, we are integrating valuable knowledge and data from the filtration sector to increase supply chain efficiency within the industry.”

The addition of FMC to the Auto Care Association provides the opportunity for current Auto Care Association members to collaborate with filtration businesses and experts, translating to more and better access for association members, such as distributors and retailers, to filter-related data, catalog data and market intelligence.

“The Filter Manufacturers Community couldn’t be happier to have found our new home at the Auto Care Association,” said Jeff Starin, president and CEO, Rostar Filters and chair, FMC. “We look forward to welcoming additional members to FMC, creating resources useful to our members and the entire automotive industry, collaborating with the other communities and committees at Auto Care, and being an integral part of the twice-a-year Leadership Days events.”

New Auto Care Association members can join FMC through the membership application on Current members can join FMC by emailing [email protected]. Joining FMC gives community members access to the full suite of Auto Care Association membership benefits, including cataloging data standards, networking opportunities through events such as Leadership Days and AAPEX, advocacy and market intelligence to help their businesses make strategic decisions within the changing landscape of the automotive aftermarket.
