NAPAC stands for Nippon Auto Parts Aftermarket Committee.

NAPAC was founded on November 18th, 2014 through integration of two corporate entities that respectively promote auto aftermarket parts, i.e. ASEA and JAWA.

 

 Founding Purpose

NAPAC makes efforts to accelerate new member registration among business associations and both corporates and independent business owners in the industry in order to sort out and consolidate various voices and requests in the auto aftermarket goods and parts industry, which can be reflected rightly in its collective lobbying activities to relevant administration bodies.

 

Business Objective

Conduct various businesses including research and survey required to promote the Japanese general auto parts and aftermarket auto parts with an ultimate objective of contributing to safety and further development of the automobile society.
