In celebrating the grand opening of its Lexington, S.C. facility on Sept. 11, IAA said the facility will help accommodate increased customer capacity demands.
However, the facility, which is IAA’s fourth branch in South Carolina, will “strategically enhance” IAA’s ability to serve the hurricane-prone Atlantic coastal region.
“We are pleased to open this branch, which is strategically located to serve this coastal region that is prone to catastrophic weather events like we saw as recently as a week ago,” IAA chief executive officer and president John Kett said in a news release.
IAA showcased the new facility’s meeting rooms at the celebration, as well as vehicle inspective center space, two new Run & Drive lanes and the company’s multi-channel auction model.
IAA added that customers and employees will experience a welcoming environment in the newly renovated lobby and conference rooms, which feature meeting and training space.
Lexington Chamber of Commerce president Otis Rawl and staff members of South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson were guests at the grand opening.
Preview days for the branch, which is located at 343 Dooley Rd. in Lexington, are Tuesdays from noon to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays from 8:30 am to 9:30 am. Sales days are Wednesdays starting at 9:30 am.
“We are offering our customers the multi-channel buying experience they expect from us, as well as additional space and amenities,” Kett said.
