About Parts & People


We have created this online resource as an extension of our popular print publication, Parts & People. It combines our monthly media content and insightful industry news from all six regional editions with special features such as directories, association listings, product announcements, track listings, and specialized web segments including Motorsports, Offroad, and Training/Education.

We intend to provide vehicle parts and service industry participants and interested parties associated with or tangential to the industry a new, online common space in which to share, network, and remain informed. The new site will provide an additional dimension of information and resources, and offer a unique opportunity for vertically integrated marketing by region, industry segment, special interest, and beyond. Parts & People, the print publication, is well read, respected, and industry supportive. We intend to demonstrate the same sense of purpose and dedication on the website.

Parts & People is a trade-only publication whose goal is to provide news, information, and insightful business profiles to automotive businesses with the purpose of sharing and cultivating good, ethical, and profitable business practices. The tabloid publication is supported solely by advertising revenues and does not sell its mail list or charge for its editorial coverage. Published in Mountain, Midwest, River Valley, Southern California, Northern California, and Northwest Editions, Parts & People is the primary operation of Automotive Counseling and Publishing Company Inc. (AC&PC), a Colorado corporation founded in 1986. AC&PC is headquartered in Denver, Colo., and maintains regional offices in Kansas City, Mo., San Francisco, Bridgeton, Mo. and Seattle. - See more at: http://www.partsandpeople.com/node/15#sthash.dqLNF9W1.dpuf
