Acquisition of foremost F&I audit services firm enables leading EHS company to be the single source for automotive compliance
LAFAYETTE, Colo.—June 26, 2018—KPA Services, LLC, a leader in Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Risk Management, announced today the acquisition of California-based Auto Advisory Services, Inc. (AAS). The acquisition closed on May 31, 2018.
This transaction strengthens KPA’s Finance and Insurance (F&I) offering through the addition of new premium services including on-site service drive audits and advertising compliance reviews, as well as an F&I compliance hotline that is designed to assist auto dealers with common day-to-day compliance issues.
“KPA is innovative, proactive and highly experienced,” said Rob Cohen, Chairman and sole shareholder of AAS. “These are qualities I have yet to see in other companies purporting to offer compliance solutions to dealers. Put simply, KPA has become the clear leader in dealership compliance.”
KPA is a leader in cloud-based EHS Risk Management Solutions and closed-loop on-site audit services that mitigate potential accidents and the costly ramifications of non-compliance with state and federal EHS regulations. In addition to EHS, KPA’s comprehensive automotive solution covers operational workflow as well as regulatory risks associated with F&I and Human Capital Management (HCM). The company focuses on mid-market companies in the automotive, manufacturing, distribution and logistics, and insurance industries.
Since 1975, AAS has been providing California auto dealerships with highly specialized sales, finance, service drive, and advertising compliance products and services. Their in-dealership expertise, legal analysis and practical approach to compliance are key differentiators for the company. AAS personnel consists of extensively trained attorneys and former state agency inspectors and investigators.
“AAS has been an outstanding provider of Sales and F&I services for more than 40 years, helping their clients reduce exposure to regulatory fines and litigation,” commented Vane Clayton, CEO of KPA. “The addition of the AAS solutions to KPA means that the automotive market now has a single showroom to shop solution to solve all their operational, regulatory and compliance risks.”
