ARA – Protecting the Industry for 80 Years!

Sep 1, 2023 | Industry

The Automotive Recyclers Association is celebrating 80 years of protecting the industry, and it culminates at the Annual Dinner at the 80th Annual Convention & Expo in Kansas City in October. In light of this industry milestone, we asked for legacy recyclers in business 25 years or longer to share their story with the ARA to celebrate their part in our unique history.


If you have a 25+ legacy story to share, there is still time to participate. We will highlight you in a future issue. Please send no more than 100 words – such as when the business started, original owners’ names, current owners, short description of the business and its history – along with high resolution images to

The 1st ARA National Convention Banquet on January 11, 1944 in Cleveland, Ohio.
