Each year since 1999 we’ve given you detailed accounts of the major distributors in the automotive parts business. Known as the Auto Chain Report, we highlighted the 50 biggest chains, tweaking the report each year to enhance its functionality. In our fifth year, however, we’ve broken the mold. Not only have we carried on the tradition of ranking the top players, but we’ve thrown in our Top 50 Prospects Report, a valuable resource for anyone selling wholesale parts.

The following are downloadable files for the Aftermarket Business Market Research section. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files. This program is available as a free download from the Adobe website.
