It’s been a busy month of expansions for IAA.
IAA’s announcement on Thursday that it is expanding its Pulaski, Va., branch is the latest of a series of expansion news items for the global vehicle marketplace company this month.
The company on Tuesday announced it was expanding its Fontana, Calif. branch. An additional announcement came on Aug. 15 that its Impact Auto Auctions subsidiary was expanding its London, Ontario branch. And on Aug. 2, IAA celebrated the grand opening of its Houston South facility.
But the Thursday notice on the Pulaski, Va. branch was the latest this month for IAA. The Pulaski branch is one of eight IAA branches in Virginia.
“This expansion provides important resources for our customers in this area of the country,” IAA chief executive officer and president John Kett said in a news release. “In addition, the East Coast has been prone to catastrophic weather events in recent years. This investment will support the potential increase in demand from those events.”
On the IAA Fontana branch expansion, Kett said the additional resources from the expansion would provide its customers a better buying experience.
“Los Angeles is an important market, and we will continue to make strategic investments to further our leadership position in the area,” Kett said.
IAA said the expansion of the Impact Auto Auctions brand in London, Ontario increases the gross acreage of the branch by nearly 25%.
“This expansion further solidifies our leadership position in both the Ontario market as well as overall in Canada,” Kett said.
