Copart Opens New Location in Maine

April 2, 2002

Copart, Inc. the California-based auto salvage and disposal service, announced that it has opened a new auction facility to serve the State of Maine, bringing the total number of its operating sites to 89 locations in 40 states.

“The new Maine location is in the community of Lyman, about 25 miles south of Portland, Maine near Interstate 95,” stated Willis J. Johnson, Copart’s CEO. “We started looking for a location in Maine over two years ago at the request of our suppliers. We’ve been through lengthy permitting and construction phases to establish this new facility. Before this facility opened we were serving the area out of our North Boston site, which is over two hours away during commute times.”
