No one is more enthusiastic about what technology can do for the automotive recycling industry than Roger Fugere. Fugere, his brother Philippe and partner Andre Savard were the visionaries behind the first full e-commerce web site, Lecavalier.com.
"Long before others, Roger and his family implemented ideas that, up to then, were unheard of," said Avi Pelc, Hollander, a Solera Company. "This includes implementing technology to improve the workflow from inventory to final storage of parts."
"Roger's adoption of new technologies and the development of a new way of doing business, will propel our industry even further than it has gone before," said Steve Fletcher, executive director, Automotive Recyclers of Canada. "Roger is the very embodiment of the modern auto recycler."
