MAJ Companies is made up of a team of companies dedicated to serving the aftermarket consulting needs of auto dealers throughout the United States. Our clients include some of the most successful dealerships in the motor vehicle industry.
Each of the affiliated member companies has a specific area of expertise. Those specialties include: aftermarket program and contract analysis, compliance and regulatory oversight and in-dealership training and development.
