Jacinto named APRA chairman

Dennis Jacinto was installed as the chairman of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA).

Jacinto started his career in the remanufacturing business, working for a company that supplied components to electrical rebuilders. In 1983 he started a company that rebuilt starter drives and solenoids, and later became a full-line supplier to electrical rebuilders. Then in 1997, Jacinto purchased Lester Catalog. The catalogs that he developed were a primary service to electrical rebuilders that helped them catalog electrical products and improve service to their customers.

For the past four years Jacinto has served on the APRA executive committee. He became the first supplier member to be elected to the APRA executive board.
