Posted on January 24, 2017

ROANOKE, Va. — Advance Auto Parts Inc., a North American automotive aftermarket parts provider, has been selected as the exclusive automotive parts and accessories supplier to the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance.

The partnership between Advance and U.S. Communities will extend through December 2019, and signifies an extension and expansion of the benefits and services Advance began providing to U.S. Communities agencies in 2011.

Through its partnership with Advance, U.S. Communities will reportedly ensure that more than 55,000 participating government, education, and nonprofit entities throughout the U.S. receive access to automotive products and services offered at fair prices.

“We are honored to grow Advance’s relationship with U.S. Communities and take great pride in the confidence their organization has placed in our product assortment, automotive programs, and team members,” said Bob Cushing, executive vice president, professional, at Advance.

U.S. Communities-participating agencies are eligible for special pricing on parts and accessories for fleet vehicles, as well as more than 600,000 parts available from Advance for light, medium, and heavy duty cars and trucks. Advance will offer instructor-led and web-based technician training programs to participating U.S. Communities agencies, and will partner with participating agencies on online parts ordering and customized inventory management solutions. Parts and services are available from Advance, Carquest, and Autopart International.  

U.S. Communities is a government purchasing cooperative organization created by public agencies for public agencies. It has helped secure more than $2 billion in products and services for participating agencies each year, according to the organization.
