Parts and accessories buying group A1 Motor Stores, has joined the IAAF trade body.

A1MS was formed in 1983 and supports a network of independent retail stores and trade factors. The group offers preferential supplier purchase terms to members, as well as group profit sharing and access to its own distribution centre for cost savings.

By joining the IAAF, A1 Motor Stores will now have access to other benefits such as insights into the Federation’s lobbying activity to safeguard the aftermarket. This includes type approval legislation, block exemption renewal and MOT testing.

Simon Salloway, Operations Director at A1 Motor Stores explained: “In times of change it is prudent to be involved in the process rather than to react to the outcome. A1 believes working with the IAAF will give us the best opportunity to ensure the voice of our own members is heard, both within our industry and beyond.”
