Reitman Auto Parts and Sales Receives “2014 CAR Member of the Year” Award from the Automotive Recyclers Association
MANASSAS, VA – Professional automotive recycling business, Reitman Auto Parts and Sales, Inc., Melbourne, Kentucky was awarded the prestigious “2014 CAR Member of the Year” award from the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) at the 71st Annual ARA Convention & Exposition in Nashville, Tennessee, October 22-25, 2014. The award honors an ARA member business that has shown exemplary dedication to the industry and the Certified Automotive Recycler (C.A.R.) program.
Established in 1927, Reitman Auto Parts and Sales is a family-owned professional automotive recycling facility in its 3rd generation of successful operation. Ed MacDonald, now the Immediate Past-President of ARA, said in his remarks about the business, "Its owners, the Reitman family, have always made the safe and environmentally friendly process of recycling vehicles the basis of their business model, and have served as a role model to their colleagues on the importance of certification."
Reitman's website proudly promotes its participation in ARA's CAR Program and the community, illustrating the family owners' commitment to their customers, colleagues and the environment. "It is because of this enduring commitment and outstanding leadership that the CAR Program named Reitman Auto Parts and Sales the recipient of this year's CAR Award," said MacDonald. "Owners Randy and Fran not only continue to ensure that the facility meets the high standards of the CAR Program, but also lead by example and consistently promote the CAR Program to fellow ARA members and external industry stakeholders."
The ARA is proud to have Reitman Auto Parts and Sales represent its membership as a shining example of the C.A.R. program. The C.A.R. program was created to produce a set of standards for general business practices as well as environmental and safety issues, and to provide guidance for member facilities in adhering to these standards. This program is one of the cornerstones of the Association. Participating facilities strive to put forward quality service and parts for the professional automotive recycling industry.
Since 1943, the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) represents an industry dedicated to the efficient removal and reuse of “green” automotive parts, and the proper recycling of inoperable motor vehicles. ARA represents the interests of over 4,500 auto recycling facilities in the United States and fourteen other countries around the world. With programs such as the Certified Automotive Recycler Program (CAR), Green Recycled Parts, and other partnerships, ARA members continue to provide consumers with quality, low-cost alternatives for vehicle replacement parts, while preserving our environment for a “greener” tomorrow.
