PITTSBURGH Insurance Auto Auctions Inc. (IAA) has expanded its Springfield, Neb., location, allowing the auto salvager and recycler to increase its inventory due to growing volume.
The Westchester, Ill.-based company, a unit of Carmel, Ind.-based KAR Auction Services Inc., expanded the facility by 11 acres to 30 acres.
"We remain committed to enhancing IAAs services across North America to ensure were delivering the best experience to our customers, which is why we are pleased to build a larger facility in Nebraska," IAA president and chief executive officer John Kett.
IAA, which engages in catastrophe (CAT) services, noted that the area in Nebraska is prone to natural disasters such as tornadoes, severe storms, hail and floods. "The additional acreage services the growth in the region, and allows us to offer more capacity to those areas requiring CAT serviceshistorically a critical need for the region," Kett said.
