Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) has added quality car parts and accessories distributor HEYNER UK to its membership.

Established in 2011, HEYNER UK represents two German brands, HEYNER and alca, which manufacture and supply windscreen wiper blades, locking wheel nuts and vehicle lifting equipment.

Paul Kiedos, managing director at HEYNER UK, said: “We’re excited to be joining the IAAF membership, tonetwork with members and enjoy the rewarding suite of membership benefits the Federation offers. It’s a great opportunity for us to showcase our range of products amongst a forward-thinking organisation that is continuing to modernise.

“As a small, family business, we love the idea of supporting independent businesses and helping them to grow. As a member of IAAF, we believe we can learn a lot and stay up to date with the latest news and changes to the industry. We’re looking forward to meeting other members during the upcoming events.”

As IAAF’s newest member, HEYNER UK will have access to many of the Federation’s benefits, including entry to industry networking events and insights into the IAAF’s lobbying activities to protect the automotive aftermarket.

A TecDoc premium data supplier, HEYNER UK was established in 2011 to deliver the high-quality products directly to the UK based customers. However, the brand was originally established nearly 30 years ago in Berlin, Germany, and today has a product portfolio comprising over 1,000 products for both B2B and B2C.

Mark Field, chief executive at IAAF, said: “The Federation continues to add members that deliver high-quality products to the automotive aftermarket and we’re delighted to welcome Heyner into membership.”
