Since the founding of the company in 1986, KPA has grown to serve over 4,000 clients across the United States and Canada; with more than 150 employees delivering services in Environmental Health and Safety compliance, Human Resource Management, and Internet marketing.

The history of KPA is a history of innovation. KPA was the first in the industry to offer online Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) training. In 2007, KPA was the first to introduce a complete EHS compliance system with the launch of and in 2008 KPA acquired HotlinkHR, the only HR software designed specifically for dealerships.

KPA continued to expand in 2011, and added Internet marketing to its service portfolio through the acquisition of TK Carsites.
