ELGIN, IL — The Council of Fleet Specialist (CFS) and The National Wheel and Rim Association (NWRA) have announced plans to merge their two associations into the Commercial Vehicle Support Network (CVSN). CVSN will represent the strongest, purely-independent distributors in the heavy-duty aftermarket business. The members of both groups voted to approve the merger.
CFS is an association of independent distributors of aftermarket parts for heavy-duty commercial vehicles and NWRA is an association of independent distributors of aftermarket wheels, rims and associated parts for heavy-duty commercial vehicles.
The new association will promote the use and distribution of heavy-duty aftermarket commercial vehicle parts and equipment and educate its members regarding the production, use, service, distribution and safety of those parts and equipment. CVSN will be an industry-wide forum for professional development, legislative awareness and business opportunities. CVSN will also offer its members the opportunity to network with their distributor peers across North America.
All current members of both CFS and NWRA will be members of CVSN. All manufacturers that currently participate in CFS and NWRA will be affiliates of the new association. Details of the final merger agreement will be released when finalized.
