Service Specialists Association (SSA) was founded in 1981 as a trade association serving specialists in the truck repair industry. The original members consisted of spring (suspension) specialists and their small group of suspension suppliers. As the group grew, the members diversified into other aspects of truck service such as brake repair, alignment and frame service and parts distribution. With member diversification came a change in the supplier membership.
The association provides a forum for the exchange of technical and business information in order that our members may understand them better.
SSA holds an annual convention in a different location every year for members; which includes training, business, booth vendor and roundtable discussion sessions. SSA sponsors educational programs at HDAW. SSA is a supporting member of NTEA and an associate member of ACOFAS. The association is a member of the National Association of Wholesalers-Distributors (NAW) with a voice in Washington, D.C.
