Fire Starter

Fires are commonplace in the auto recycling industry. Local news affiliates reported fires at facilities in Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma and Texas in February 2016 alone … and this list is far from complete. It’s not if a fire could happen, but when.

Close Proximity

An auto recycling facility may not be the first business one thinks of when imagining the Twin Cities Metro area. But, a facility that continues to grow and thrive, offers a lifetime warranty on most of its parts, and is a valued member of its community, is what you’ll find at A-Abco Fridley Auto Parts.

Go Green

It’s not easy being green. But Chris Sargent will tell you it is very worthwhile. The owner of Hwy. 62 Auto Salvage & Sales, Inc. (www.62autoparts.com) in Fayetteville, Ark., prides himself on running a green business in an industry that naturally is built on the recycle / re-use mindset.
