LKQ Corporation has been in business since 1998, and in today’s market plays at major roll on OEM and aftermarket auto parts.
LKQ Corporation keeps purchasing major salvage yards across America and Europe. With the knowledge of tax increases for year 2013 on December 31 2012 LKQ closed on 6 of the largest Salvage Yards in the nation.
With the purchase of U-Pull-It Of Broward in South Florida, LKQ has taken a jump into the scrap metals and full vehicle shredding market.
Just recently in 2012 U-Pull-It Of Broward bought their very own shredder and it swallows cars by the hundreds on average. With the constant supply from all the Junk yards LKQ acquired in Florida and southern counties of Georgia, U-Pull-It specs to shred over 1000 cars per day and expand their export or raw metals to Japan and Latin America.
