NW Automotive Trades Association
www.aboutnata.org
The story of NATA and automotive associations
in Oregon is as old as automobiles themselves.
In 1914, just a decade after Henry Ford used
$100,000 in capital to establish the Ford Motor
Company, ten Portland automotive aftermarket
entrepreneurs banded together to create an
organization designed to strengthen their
businesses without interfering with each
other's competitive independence. Like the
automobile, NATA and the associations that
preceded it have changed dramatically. Today,
our members are collision, repair and
transmission shops, auto dealers, auto
recyclers, parts and shop suppliers, tire
installers, and tow operators. We continue to
support the automotive industry and our
members through education, representation,
and excellent member benefits!
