DALLAS, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), a global online vehicle auction company, is proud to announce the opening of its 15th location in California. The new Wilmington, Calif., location is Copart's 200th location worldwide and its seventh location in the southern California market.
"More than three decades ago, Copart opened its first yard in California, so it's only fitting that the landmark opening of our 200th location is also in California," said Jay Adair, CEO of Copart. "I'm extremely proud of the hard work that has gotten us here, and I look forward to continued success."
In 2002, Copart expanded to 100 locations in the United States. One year later, it opened its first international location in Canada. Today, Copart has operations in 11 countries across five continents.
"A growing global presence is a win for both our sellers and buyers. For our sellers, it improves cycle time and reduces costs. For our buyers, it increases access to a greater volume and variety of vehicles," said Vinnie Mitz, President of Copart.
Through Copart's patented multi-channel online platform, sellers are linked to potential buyers, and bidders can view location information, search vehicles, place bids and participate in live online car auctions on their mobile devices, tablets and computers.
In addition to conducting online vehicle auctions, Copart is a proud community partner. Visit TeamCopart.com for a glimpse into the many ways that the company supports local, regional and national charities, law enforcement and first responders.
