AUBURN HILLS, MI--Nov. 14, 2012: Chrysler Group LLC, in its continuing effort to build relationships with key trade associations, has formed partnerships with the Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors Association (PHCC) and Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

These new partnerships bring to four the number of agreements that Chrysler Group has struck in its ongoing commitment to grow commercial vehicle business through its Chrysler Commercial Vehicles arm. The partnerships provide access to a combined 36,500 businesses and reach more than 1.1 million people.

By partnering with the Chrysler Group, association members and immediate family members at the same residence can receive a $500 cash allowance on the purchase or lease of select 2012 and 2013 Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram Truck brand models.

In addition, association members meet the requirements for Chrysler Commercial Vehicle's "On the Job" program. This customized-for-commercial-use program allows commercial customers to choose from generous upfit or graphic allowances, or no cost two-year oil, lube and filter service contract covering eight oil changes for gas or diesel engines.

"As part of our ongoing commitment to grow our commercial business, we are pleased to announce these two formal partnerships with Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors Association and Associated General Contractors of America," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO -- Dodge Brand and Head of U.S. Sales. "We will continue to identify new associations to strategically partner with as they provide a terrific opportunity for their members to save on the purchase or lease of a new Chrysler Group vehicle."
