IGONC, NCTDA Merging to Create New Organization


...merge IGO and NCTDA into the Automotive Service and Tire Alliance. 


The world is changing and both associations feel this is the proper direction to create a powerful and sustainable association to foster a thriving tire and auto repair industry for our combined roughly 800 members.


We are excited to build a membership organization that is uniquely qualified to understand the challenges of independent tire and automotive service businesses. We are all about impacting lives. We will positively impact the lives of our members, our members employees, the families of those employees and the safety and well-being of the driving public. Stay tuned. There is much more to come.
From Stan Creech, ATSA immediate past president:


It’s a great day to be an IGONC now ASTA member.  


Since 1959, the IGONC has grown to be the largest automotive association, representing independent garages with ever increasing support and resources and helping shops rise to the next level. 


Oct. 1, as we merge with the NCTDA, it’s a little hard to imagine what the new entity will look like a year or two from now. I can tell you there has been and continues to be a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes getting this merger off to the right start. I’m very excited about the future of the ASTA and what it has to offer independent shops, be it service or tire shops.
Sometimes changes take a bit getting used to, but I’m confident this merger will bring a shot of adrenaline and a much stronger Alliance that will carry us strongly for many years to come, on a solid foundation.


In our changing world, a time when other similar organizations are struggling, the ASTA has a bright and solid future.
