Insurance Auto Auctions Increases Presence In Texas With Three Strategic Branch Expansions
Published July 19, 2016 - Written by IAA, Inc.
WESTCHESTER, IL, July 19, 2016 — Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA), a business unit of KAR Auction Services (NYSE: KAR), and the leading live and live-online salvage auto auction company, today announced the expansion and improvement of three locations in Texas – Corpus Christi, Houston, and McAllen facilities. Through strategic, ongoing growth, the expansions of facilities serve to both promote IAA’s continued dedication to its customers and to add to the company’s footprint in the industry, with over 170 locations in North America.
IAA Corpus Christi underwent an expansion, and now spans a total of approximately 12 acres. Chosen for expansion based on space demands and to assist in potential future catastrophe (CAT) situations, the enhanced location was officially operational as of May 1. In line with IAA’s environmental philosophy, reclaimed asphalt was used in the development of the new acreage. IAA Houston, the company’s largest branch, recently completed a state-of-the-art building extension to accommodate an additional fourth lane for the popular live IAA Run & Drive® segment of the auction. With over 1,200 units sold per week at this location, expanding the Run & Drive capabilities and hiring another auctioneer will further accommodate the high volume in one of IAA’s largest growth markets. As of July 1, IAA McAllen also opened a new live Run & Drive lane to increase the pace of vehicle sales at the facility and increase capacity for IAA’s growing buyer base.
“Our advancements in Texas serve to successfully provide customers with the additional storage area and capabilities needed to meet demand, while also providing greater inventory of vehicles to choose from,” said John Kett, CEO and president, Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. “These improvements illustrate our commitment to anticipating market needs and strategically expanding our locations accordingly to ultimately enhance our buyers and sellers’ auction experience.”
IAA is a proud community partner, and is grateful that each of these locations has been welcoming its increased presence in their communities. IAA strives to work with local businesses and civic organizations across the country for charitable causes, as well as overall economic growth for the region.
