To meet increasing buyer and seller demand in Germany, Copart has established a second location in Germany that is located near the city of Leipzig.
The company announced Monday that its second location in Germany can store up to 4,500 vehicles and will hold bi-weekly auctions on Thursdays at noon.
“We are proud to open our second location in Germany,” Copart Germany managing director Alain Van Munster said in a news release. “With our proximity to Leipzig, we are able to more efficiently serve a substantial portion of the German market.
Our location is also closer to our members in Poland and Eastern Europe, who represent an important buyer base for our vehicles," Van Munster continued.
Copart subsidiary opens new Wisconsin facility
Meanwhile, another addition to Copart comes from its National Powersport Auctions (NPA) subsidiary in Wisconsin.
NPA, a Copart platform, has opened the doors to NPA Madison — a new 66,000 square-foot size facility in DeForest, which is just outside of Madison.
Located at 6474 Blanchars Crossing, the new location’s first live auction was scheduled to take place on Thursday at 9 a.m. CT.
“Why did we choose Madison? To make it easier for our dealers to do business with us. Madison is the state capital and is near Chicago, Minneapolis and Milwaukee. This puts us much closer to our customers in the region and makes buying and selling through NPA more convenient,” NPA chief operating officer Jim Woodruff said in a news release.
“NPA’s new Madison location reduces the time to auction for all NPA stakeholders in the region. There are several flights between Madison and our other locations, making this new location readily accessible for out of state Buyers and Sellers,” Woodruff continued.
Given the location of the new auction, Woodruff said that he expects live auctions held at the facility to have a diverse mix of units totaling 600 between 800.
