The Difference of Becoming a Member

What is AASDN East Coast?

The Australian Automotive Service Dealers Network (AASDN) is a 10 year old cooperative association of workshops that was formed to provide support, training and mentoring to leading workshops in Australia.

Running any type of business is tough especially in the automotive industry where we have the added problems of staff shortages, high ongoing requirements for technical training, high business tooling expenses, and low levels of customer trust.

Recognising this, a group of workshops in NSW & ACT, got together to collaborate and share technical training, advice, and to network with like minded business owners so that we can collectively better look after our customers, run a better business, and provide a premium level of care.

Over the past 10 years, membership has grown to over 50 leading workshops in NSW, ACT and QLD. With an objective to grow our membership base further especially into QLD and VIC.
