Our Mission Statement
To continue our tradition as a respected leader in the automotive hobby; to be a
responsible member of the communities in which we operate; and to pursue new business
opportunities, ensuring the growth of the company.
SPECIALTY EQUIPMENT MARKETING ASSOCIATION (SEMA)
A love for cars, trucks and SUVs is the motivating force behind the Specialty Equipment
Market Association (SEMA). This trade association consists of a diverse group of
manufacturers, distributors, retailers, publishing companies, auto restorers, street
rod builders, restylers, car clubs, race teams and more.
SEMA members make, buy, sell and use all kinds of specialty parts and accessories
to make vehicles more attractive, more unique, more convenient, faster, safer, more
fun and even like-new again.
The companies that founded SEMA--and the entire specialty parts and accessories
industry, for that matter--were started by people who loved cars and trucks and
turned their hobby into a career. Most people in the industry today still feel this
way. That’s one of the things that makes SEMA and its members unique.
AUTOMOTIVE RESTORATION MARKET ORGANIZATION (ARMO)
ARMO, the Automotive Restoration Market Organization, is a council of the Specialty
Equipment Market Association (SEMA). Dedicated to addressing the many challenges
facing this segment of the aftermarket, ARMO directs its efforts toward preserving
and promoting the automotive restoration industry.
Who Makes Up Armo?
All entities serving the auto restoration hobby, be they manufacturers, distributors,
retailers, restorers or car clubs, should be ARMO members. In fact, it is critical
that as many companies as possible become involved. Once in ARMO, members work through
subcommittees to focus on the legislative, educational and communications needs
of its members.
