Locator Publications In The Mail

Congratulations to Jim Butler! Jim is the 2013 Locator UpFront’s Boss of the Year! We featured Jim on the cover of the Autumn 2013 issue - www.partslocator.com/Locator-Upfront/Fall-2013/. Every year we accept nominations for Boss of the Year from employees of auto recyclers. We take all of the nominations then compile a list to choose a winner. Eight of Jim’s employees sent in nominations for him. He was very humbled and honored, and also very deserving of this achievement. The Autumn 2013 Locator UpFront was mailed last week.

2013 Hollander Innovation Summit

Whew, a lot has been happening here at The Locator. As soon as we finished production of the 2014 Locator’s Directory, I was off to Minneapolis, Minn. for Hollander’s 2013 International Innovation Summit. It was a very informative show, with great entertainment events. Hollander held a “pub crawl” on the sixth floor of the Marriott City Center. The event had a different types of food and drink in each corner of the floor. It was outstanding. Everyone was able to nibble and still network at the same time. I got the chance to talk to people in person that I’ve either e-mailed or talked to on the phone for years. The sessions were nice. I thought the length was great. Some were about 50 minutes and other double that - depending on the topic.

Directory Off To Print

Another year down. The 2014 Locator’s Directory is officially at the printers. This new edition will be mailed on October 1, 2014. This issue looks great. It has a retro-look, but still incorporates all the same tools, like the automotive recycler, self-service and salvage pool listings (categorized by state), plus full-color display ads for specialty yards and manufacturers and suppliers.

August Has Arrived

We are officially now on the downslide of summer. The kids go back to school in a couple weeks and football kicks off in about a month. Where has the time gone? The last couple weeks have certainly flown by here at The Locator. Between vacations and finishing up the August 2013 Locator Magazine, this is the first time I’ve had a chance to blog.

Locator Goes Classics Crazy

Classic vehicle parts are the hidden treasures of the auto recycling industry. A couple acres of rust-free sheet metal from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s brings out the kid in professionals and hobbyists alike. But, sometimes finding the perfect parts can be like panning for gold. We are here to help!
