ACDelco Associate Distributor Program Overview


The ACDelco Associate Distributor Program (ADP) recognizes smaller distributors that support the ACDelco proposition and strengthen and complement the distribution of ACDelco products throughout the independent aftermarket. The ADP offers access to 90,000+ parts to service most makes and models, including the opportunity to purchase tools and business support at a discounted rate. This program helps you build your business by offering program elements that are intended to increase employee enthusiasm, improve business operations and help build sales. The more product lines you purchase, the more benefits you receive to help build your business, increase sales and improve operations.
