Paramount Recovery Service, a leading Southern California-based automotive repossession company, recently announced the expansion of its locations and services as well as the hiring of two industry experts.
Company leaders highlighted the physical expansion includes the acquisition of PRS’ largest location to date — an indoor and outdoor facility consisting of 88,000 square feet that’s situated in downtown Los Angeles’ Huntington Park district. The company now services 15 counties with brick and mortar repossession storage facilities, including a location in San Diego, a one-acre facility in Perris, and others in Ontario, East Los Angeles, Burbank, Oxnard, Lancaster, Bakersfield and Fresno.
PRS also maintains an office and auto storage facility in Phoenix.
The company noted a portion of this growth follows PRS’ acquisition of three other automotive repossession companies during the past two quarters. Additional acquisitions are underway with plans to expand to Palm Springs, Santa Maria and throughout California by the end of 2019.
PRS also added two new employees to its management team.
Industry veteran Kevin Morgan joined as vice president with an extensive background in auto and repossession services, credit union experience and remarketing. Morgan previously worked for Simons Services and Recovery (SSR) and Cinema Vehicle Services.
Morgan will assist PRS founder and president Steve Simons in company oversight and daily operations.
Daisy Duarte came aboard as director of operations in PRS’ pre-recovery unit, bringing years of industry knowledge and expertise from Westlake Financial Services. Duarte now is part of the operations team led by PRS chief operating officer Roger Gilden.
“The addition of Kevin and Daisy allows us to continue to grow and operate the best professional one-stop-shop for all Southern California recovery,” Simons said.
“Despite our rapid growth, we remain dedicated to being the family-oriented, professional organization that has always set us apart in the industry,” Simons continued. “We are also upgrading the technology in all of our state-of-the-art facilities, saving money and time for our clients. We are changing the way repossession companies operate through compliance, technology and automation.”
PRS’ fleet of vehicles now scans more than 10 million license plates per month via its strategic partnership with on-demand data solutions company, MVTRAC. Using the newest license plate recognition (LPR) technology and employing a round-the-clock administration team and dispatch for all field staff, clients can PRS for expedited auto recovery 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
The company also offers complete in-house automotive locksmith services, auto transport services and will soon be offering vehicle remarketing, as well as a statewide impound retrieval division.
Due to PRS’ rapid growth, the company is hiring in all locations. PRS offers comprehensive health benefits and competitive wages to its employees. Qualified applicants are encouraged to send their resumes to [email protected]
