The Automotive Parts Industry Association (APIA) is a non profit organisation informally formed in 1991 and formally incorporated in 1993. It currently represents and services approximately 130 Automotive Parts Recyclers and Aftermarket Parts suppliers throughout New Zealand.

APIA members supply the vast majority of recycled and aftermarket parts sold in New Zealand – they represent about 70% of the parts that are sold as an economical alternative to new OE parts throughout the country each year.

Members of APIA exist for one purpose – to provide good quality parts to vehicle owners and their insurers at highly competitive prices that help keep the cost of motoring affordable.

APIA provides educational, regulatory and industry information; as well as other services, to its membership in an effort to facilitate continued education, growth and evolution of the Auto Parts Recycling industry.  Its members strongly believe that recycling is a responsible industry with environmental and economic benefit to New Zealand. Without salvaging and active recycling of valuable pre-owned vehicles, a huge resource would be wasted.  Accident damaged and vehicles that have reached the end of their life still have many original parts that are perfectly good and ideal to reuse in repairs of identical vehicles. Insurers and repairers not only know the value in using recycled parts but appreciate their social responsibility to do so.

APIA has close affiliations to APRAA (Auto Parts Recyclers Association of Australia Inc), many other international automotive industry organisations and all Associations serving those involved in the Automotive Repair Industry throughout New Zealand. They also work closely with the Collision Repair Association (CRA), the Insurance Council of New Zealand and Land Transport New Zealand (LTNZ) - formerly (LTSA).
APIA is the only national association serving the Automotive Parts Salvage and Recycling industry in New Zealand.
