PITTSBURGH Schnitzer Steel Industries Inc. subsidiary Pick-n-Pull has opened its second location in Calgary, Alberta.
"We are very excited about opening our second store in Calgary," Pick-n-Pull president Tom Klauer said in a statement. "Our innovative and easy-to-shop self-service retail stores not only provide the residents of Calgary with huge savings on their auto parts, it also provides a way for the people in the community to recycle their unwanted vehicles in an environmentally responsible manner and get cash for their car."
Pick-n-Pull, which has 60 locations in the United States and Canada recycling about 325,000 vehicles annually, has been in Calgary for nine years.
Portland, Ore.-based Schnitzer recently commissioned a new shredder in western Canada as part of its strategy to expand its auto parts business through acquisitions and greenfield developments as it targets expansion of its scrap supply chain (amm.com, April 4).
