"My father was an APRA member since the 40’s and Romaine is
one of the oldest members of all at 54 years. I have been coming to APRA events since I was about 20 years old. From the very beginning I would get butterflies before the show, thinking about all I’d see and all the people I’d talk to. It’s really no different today. I can’t express the value I’ve gotten out of the brotherhood that is APRA. I’ve met some simply amazing people, countless customers and developed a tremendous number of vendors."
Nick Stoub, Romaine
"I have been an APRA member since the early ‘80s. Much of my early training and exposure to emerging technology was through attendance at clinics and seminars presented during the Big R Shows. Through my involvement with APRA I have had the opportunity to meet and become friends with leaders of our industry, past and
present. This networking and sharing of knowledge is an integral part of my success in the Electrical Remanufacturing community."
Dan Smith, Arrowhead Electrical Products
"The sentiment “United we stand, divided we fall” is what convinced us to join APRA, and makes us remain a member and contributor today. Over
the past 28 years we’ve learned so much from, and shared everything we could with, our fellow members and the APRA staff. That’s what makes APRA work, and why it exists."
David Simon, Euro-Drive Clutch
"Everyone needs someone who 'has your back'. To me that someone is APRA. Over the years we have taken advantage of some of the many resources the Association provides, not the least of which is the network of other rebuilders and the knowledge they possess. Knowing that APRA's reason for being is to benefit and inform the members and to represent us and our industry in places where we cannot represent our self. That justifies being a member."
Tom Talley, President of Talley Auto Electric Inc.
"The APRA have always been a great, cost-effective partner for us. The APRA annual meeting in Vegas, just a few days before the APPEX/SEMA week, ensures that our people can attend the networking event as well as meet all the core suppliers and fellow members."
Aron Regev, President of Blue Streak Electronics
"The APRA is a great organization that
allows us as a Supplier to connect
with those in the remanufacturing
industry. Those in the APRA have a
common interest with similar ideas,
and membership allows us to collectively
express these ideas and any issues to shape our industry. The various
publications, seminars and trade shows provide for these interactions
to be thoughtful and efficient."
Gary S. Tsai, Operations Manager at REGITAR USA
