The Automotive Aftermarket Liaison Group is made up of a number of trade organisations operating in the independent automotive aftermarket.

It meets regularly to discuss matters of common interest, in doing so increasing the effectiveness of their own activities and often finding a means of achieving a common end without costly duplication of effort.

Support Right2Choose

Launching the Right2Choose campaign has been possible through generous financial support from companies, organisations and individuals in the independent automotive aftermarket. However, to continue and to expand the campaign we need further regular support.

If you would like to discuss how you can help the Campaign, use this contact form. Your details will remain confidential.
