Repair ACES announced its launch at the Diesel Laptops Virtual Truck Repair Expo earlier this month. The association has been created by industry professionals who saw a need and had a vision to be a resource and advocacy organization for heavy truck and commercial equipment repair and maintenance businesses, according to an announcement.
Repair ACES (The Association for Commercial Equipment Solutions) affiliate partners already have been established, with more planned in the future. They will help provide a variety of important benefits to the members, ACES says.
Corporate members will include repair and maintenance businesses such as independent shops, fleets, dealer repair shops, leasing companies, mobile repair and truck stops. Suppliers to those businesses also are welcomed to join as Allied Members.
“Repair ACES has been formed to be of assistance to an underserved segment of the transportation industry, the heavy truck and commercial repair and maintenance businesses, with some unique benefits. We are encouraged by all of the excitement around this new association and look forward to building up our membership, listening to their needs and continuing to develop new offerings to serve them,” says Justina Nadolson, who has been appointed as the Executive Director of Repair ACES.
Current benefits to the membership are designed to give more resources, help increase profits and convey knowledge.
Already available are benefits that include parts discounted to national fleet pricing for any size operation as well as expedited shipping on parts; rebates on diagnostics equipment; truck repair financing; free website with no hosting fees; discounts on SEO and free reporting on Internet presence and effectiveness; free and discounted training; free workplace safety platform; and networking opportunities. There are additional benefits planned which will be announced soon, the association says.
