THE PERFORMANCE WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATION


Picture of a CarPerformance Warehouse Association (PWA) is a nonprofit organization of specialty automotive parts distributors joined together to deal with management, financial and legislative matters. Supporting members include manufacturers, manufacturer’s sales representatives, jobbers/retailers, service providers and media publications.

Founded in 1971, its mission is to assist the specialty automotive industry in efforts to expand, maintain and promote the profitable distribution of specialty automotive products through the manufacturer / distributor / retailer / consumer channel.

A Board of Directors governs PWA and act on behalf of the members. Nine directors, including the Chairman, Chairman-Elect and Treasurer, are elected to a two-year term by the active distributor membership, which represent the United States, Canada and International. A President is appointed by the Board to oversee the association.


    New for 2014 - Distributor Membership Criteria Changes

    • Annual purchases of at least $3,000,000
