SEMA: Your Aftermarket Community

SEMA Aftermarket CommunityA love for cars, trucks and SUVs is the motivating force behind SEMA. This trade association consists of a diverse group of manufacturers, distributors, retailers, auto restorers, vehicle builders, restylers and more. SEMA’s mission statement is, “To help our members’ businesses grow and prosper.” This statement was adopted by the SEMA Board of Directors in 1992 and has driven the association ever since.

SEMA Still Going Full Speed Ahead

SEMA was formed in 1963, and the first Show took place four years later, under the bleachers at Dodger Stadium.Over the past 52 years, SEMA has developed a track record of assisting members in a variety of areas related to industry and business development. The mission of “helping members’ businesses succeed and prosper” is steeped in history and first grew out of a need for consistency and community among racing industry members.

In the early years, as the industry grew, specifications remained a challenge. It became clear that a partnership was needed for manufacturers. Regulations were necessary in order to keep moving forward, but the manufacturers needed to organize. Discussions began on how to create specifications and legitimize products and, on March 26, 1963, the Speed Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) was formed in response.
