DALLAS, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), a global online vehicle auction company, is proud to announce the expansion of its Abilene, Texas location. This is Copart's fourth expansion of an existing location in Texas in 2016, having already announced the expansion of its Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio locations.
"The expansion of our Abilene location is the perfect complement to our already strong presence in the Lone Star State," said Jay Adair, CEO of Copart. "We have been gradually increasing our footprint in Texas this year with the new addition of our Waco, Dallas South, and CrashedToys Dallas locations, giving us 15 locations across the State of Texas."
Online auctions for Copart Abilene occur at noon CST every Friday. Copart's inventory is not limited to vehicles, but also includes a wide collection of boats, RVs, ATVs, motorcycles and more.
Copart practices good corporate citizenship and prides itself in giving back the local communities in which it does business.

In addition, Copart offers law enforcement, fire departments and similar government agencies a safe training environment.
