Copart announces opening in 46th state


On Wednesday, Copart announced the addition of its first location in Wyoming and fourth in Colorado, along with the expansion of its Springfield, Mo., location.

"We have been expanding and adding new locations throughout the United States this year, and we are pleased to add Wyoming as our 46th state in which we are operating," Copart chief executive officer, Jay Adair, said in a news release.

"Our land and ability to accommodate inventory is one of the many things that sets Copart apart," Adair continued. "Our sellers depend on us to have land available for their vehicles, and our expansions and new locations exhibit our ability to provide our sellers with an unmatched experience."

The company’s two new locations are in Casper, Wyo. and Littleton, Colo.

Last year, Copart reported the opening of 10 new locations and the expansion of 13 existing locations nationwide.

Copart also grew internationally after developing operations in the Republic of Ireland, Spain and Germany in 2016.

"We achieved a tremendous milestone last year when we eclipsed an annual sales rate in excess of two million vehicles sold, and these new locations and expansions allow us to accommodate our growing inventory," said Adair.
