FAIRFIELD, CA - Copart Inc. recently announced the opening of a new facility in Montgomery, Ala. This latest addition to Copart's growing footprint marks the company's fourth facility in Alabama and the 146th facility worldwide.

Copart CEO and founder Willis J. Johnson said the 20-acre site will serve the southeast corner of the state, decreasing cycle times and reducing storage and fuel costs for customers.

"Combined with our existing facilities in Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile, this new location will allow Copart to take on additional business in Alabama," Johnson said.

Copart, founded in 1982, provides vehicle sellers with remarketing services to process and sell salvage and clean title vehicles to dismantlers, rebuilders, exporters and, in some states, to end users. Copart remarkets the vehicles through Internet sales using its proprietary VB2 technology.
