DALLAS, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), a global leader in online vehicle auctions, is pleased to announce the expansion of its location northeast of Baton Rouge, located at 21595 Greenwell Springs Road in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana.
"Just a few months ago, we announced our New Orleans expansion. By expanding our Baton Rouge-area location and our presence in the South, we are able to provide even more value to our buyers and sellers in the region," said Jay Adair, CEO of Copart.
The Copart location in Greenwell Springs holds online car auctions every Tuesday at noon CT. Eligible buyers can join auctions and bid on inventory through the Copart website or via the Copart Mobile App for iOS and Android devices. Bidding kiosks are also available at the location for use during normal business hours.
"This was a very strategic expansion by Copart," said General Manager Michael Zengel. "It gives Copart a tactical advantage in an unfortunately hurricane-prone area of the country. It's important for our location to have this extra capacity, not only to keep up with the current demand but to be even better equipped to respond to potential catastrophes in and around Louisiana."
