hat a time it is to be in the Canadian auto recycling sphere! In many ways, our industry was at the forefront of the big events of 2017. For too long, auto recyclers and their work in improving our environment, strengthening the automotive economy and their communities, has gone unnoticed. Canada is, as always, punching above its weight in the auto recycling community. For one thing, we played host to the 10th annual International Roundtable on Auto Recycling in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Kudos to Steve Fletcher, Ed McDonald and all of the other organizers. As an observer, it was a thrill to see the community come together. With speakers from India, Japan, Australia, Britain, the United States and Canada, I was inspired by the discussions our industry’s best and brightest held on the shared challenges we face, and the many steps being taken to correct them in different parts of the globe. For me, it was the perfect reminder of what I love about this industry—when it comes to individual businesses, we compete with an atmosphere of mutual respect and warmth. When it comes to industry-wide challenges, we approach them as a team—and what a heck-of-a-team it is. For another, the ARA chose Torontonian David Gold, former head of Standard Auto Wreckers, to be its president. Anyone who knows David, knows what a tireless advocate for the industry he is. In the few months that he has been in his new role, David has worked to bring attention to the environmental good that auto recyclers are doing for our environment. To that end, he has arranged a meeting between the ARA board and environmental groups in Washington, D.C. He has also worked to build up the industry’s reputation with insurers and repair shops—a strategy that seems to be working well. In fact, B.C.’s Auto Retailer’s Association has just come forward with recommendations for helping the province’s public insurer remain solvent. At the top of their list, they requested that local auto recyclers be given special access to written-off vehicles because they are the most economically efficient source of good-as-new OEM parts. What a coup! When I reflect on all my years of overseeing Canadian Auto Recyclers, I keep coming back to the same thought—I feel blessed to be involved in such a great industry with such great people. CAR

n tant que communauté, les recycleurs automobiles canadiens ont beaucoup de raisons d’être fiers. D’une part, le Canada a accueilli la 10e Table ronde annuelle internationale sur le recyclage automobile à Niagara Falls en Ontario. Félicitations à Steve Fletcher et à tous les autres organisateurs. En tant qu’observatrice, c’était un plaisir de voir et de parler avec la communauté. Avec des conférenciers de l’Inde, du Japon, de l’Australie, du Royaume-Uni, des États-Unis et du Canada, c’était excitant de voir les meilleurs et les plus brillants de notre industrie discuter de défis communs auxquels nous sommes confrontés et des mesures prises pour les corriger dans différente partie du monde. Pour moi, c’était le parfait rappel de ce que j’aime dans cette industrie. Quand il s’agit d’entreprises individuelles, nous rivalisons dans une atmosphère de respect mutuel et chaleureux. Quand il s’agit de relever des défis à l’échelle de l’industrie, nous les abordons en tant qu’équipe - et c’est toute une équipe. Comme toujours, le Canada se dépasse dans la communauté du recyclage automobile - et pas seulement dans notre propre pays. En Septembre, l’ARA a tenu son congrès à Dallas. Il a été annoncé que le Torontois David Gold, ancien chef de Standard Auto Wreckers, avait été nommé le président de l’ARA. Au cours des quelques mois qu’il a passés dans son nouveau rôle, David a travaillé pour attirer l’attention sur le bien environnemental que les recycleurs automobiles ont sur l’environnement. À cette fin, il a organisé une réunion entre le conseil d’administration de l’ARA et des groupes environnementaux de Washington, DC. Il a également travaillé à bâtir la réputation de l’industrie auprès des assureurs et des ateliers de réparation - une stratégie qui semble bien fonctionner. L’Association des détaillants d’automobiles de la Colombie-Britannique vient de présenter des recommandations pour aider l’assureur public de la province à demeurer solvable. En haut de leur liste, ils ont demandé que les recycleurs automobiles locaux reçoivent un accès spécial aux véhicules radiés, car ils constituent la source la plus économique de pièces d’origine neuves. Quel coup! Quand je réfléchis à l’année - et à toutes mes années de supervision des Recycleurs automobiles canadiens,je reviens toujours à la même idée - je suis tellement chanceuse d’être impliquée dans une si grande industrie avec des gens si formidables.

Canadian Auto Recyclers, 2009

When Carcone’s was selected to be featured on the inaugural cover of Canadian Auto Recyclers, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. After it was printed and distributed the calls kept coming in: from fellow recyclers, insurers and even from local schools. Nothing had ever been done prior to this of this magnitude to advance the image of our industry.

It was quite an honour to be featured on the second cover of Canadian Auto Recyclers. I didn’t look at it as a personal triumph in any way, but as a triumph for our industry overall. By celebrating the successes of our community we can educate and inform all the partners with whom we work and attract new ones as well. It is good to see our industry receiving external recognition for the accomplishments we have made together and those we will create in the future.

For much too long the recycling industry has operated in individual silos across the country. After Lecavalier Auto Parts appeared as a cover story in 2009’s Canadian Auto Recyclers, it was apparent from the number of congratulatory calls we received that our industry is advancing as a national identity. We are now being given, by other sectors of the auto claims economy and the general driving public, the respect long overdue for the advancements our industry is making.

—Willis Thys

—Philippe Fugère

C’était tout un honneur d’être présenté sur la page couverture de la deuxième édition de Canadian Auto Recyclers. Je ne le considère pas comme un triomphe personnel, mais un triomphe pour notre industrie dans son ensemble. En célébrant le succès de notre collectivité, nous pouvons éduquer et informer tous les partenaires avec lesquels nous travaillons et en attirer de nouveaux. Nous sommes satisfaits de la reconnaissance manifestée envers notre industrie pour les travaux que nous avons accomplis ensemble et, nous l’espérons, pour ceux que nous réaliserons dans les années à venir.

Depuis beaucoup trop longtemps, l’industrie du recyclage automobile a fonctionné sans réelle cohésion à travers le pays. Après avoir fait la première page de l’édition 2009 du Canadian Auto Recyclers, les multiples messages de Pièces automobiles Lecavalier démontrent que notre industrie s’implante en tant qu’identité nationale. Nous bénéficions maintenant du respect longtemps attendu des autres acteurs économiques du secteur de l’automobile et du public en général grâce aux avancements réalisés.

—Michael Carcone

Lorsque Carcone a été choisi pour figurer sur la couverture inaugurale du Canadian Auto Recyclers je n’étais pas tout à fait sûr à quoi m’attendre. Après l’impression et la distribution de l’article, nous avons reçu plusieurs demandes variées de recycleurs, de collègues, d’assureurs et même d’écoles locales. Rien n’avait été jamais fait d’une telle ampleur pour promouvoir l’image de notre industrie. Je crois sincèrement que tous nos partenaires ont une meilleure compréhension qui nous sommes en tant que groupe et des solutions constructives que nous proposons . —Michael Carcone

Auto recyclers in Canada do so much for their communities and the environment. Every year Canadian Auto Recyclers tells that to the world by highlighting all the good work the industry has done. In 2010 I was honoured to share my story alongside many great examples of innovation, creativity and respect for the environment. I look forward to seeing the good work Canadian recyclers continue to do.

This magazine reflects the professionalism auto recycling has developed. Government, insurers, manufacturers and environmental groups recognize our commitment to stewardship and quality. Canadian Auto Recyclers has been well received at national and international events, as it helps reflect and showcase the professionalism of our industry. I’m honoured to have been featured.

It was an honour to appear on the 2012 cover of Canadian Auto Recyclers, joining other industry greats who have been profiled in the past. We don’t think of ourselves as especially humble, but we know of many others who share our passion for customer service and environmental protection. Canadian Auto Recyclers has been invaluable in helping us connect with our peers across Canada.

Collectivement les recycleurs automobiles du Canada font beaucoup de bien pour l’environnement. C’est un fait que Canadian Auto Recyclers clame haut et fort chaque année en parlant de l’excellent travail fait dans l’industrie. L’année dernière, j’ai eu l’honneur de partager mon histoire aux côtés de plusieurs grands exemples d’innovation, de créativité et de respect de l’envrironnement. J’ai bien hâte de voir le bon travail que les recycleurs Canadiens continuent de faire.

Ce magazine reflète le professionnalisme développé par l’industrie du recyclage automobile. Le gouvernement, les assureurs, les fabricants et les groupes environnementaux reconnaissent notre engagement en ce qui concerne l’intendance et la qualité. Le magazine a eu du succès pendant le IRT à Québec, l’ARA en Caroline du Nord et le National Forum on Auto Recycling à Toronto. Ce fut un honneur pour moi de paraître sur la couverture.

C’était un honneur de figurer sur la page couverture du dernier numéro. Nous nous sommes joints aux grands de l’industrie qui y ont déjà figuré au fi l des ans. Nous savons qu’il y a de nombreux autres recycleurs automobiles qui partagent notre passion pour le service à la clientèle et la protection de l’environnement. Le magazine nous a aidés à créer des liens avec nos pairs partout au Canada.

With so much happening within the industry with each passing year, the auto recycling business is always evolving and this magazine helps communicate the industry’s mission. It highlights where we are all headed, and we were pleased to be featured on the cover in 2013.

Being on the cover of Canadian Auto Recyclers is something that has further elevated the status of every recycler that graces the cover of the magazine. Canadian Auto Recyclers is the conduit for knowing the players in the industry and believe me, it’s much appreciated. I’m very humbled to be a part of the magazine, and to be on the cover is a tremendous honour.

Being featured alongside the up-and-coming leaders of the auto recycling industry in Canada was something I will always remember. I know that we will all be working in close proximity in the decades to come, and I am sure we will talk about the cover story every time we meet.

Canadian Auto Recyclers has always reflected the spirit of friendly competition that has made our industry such a great place to work.

British Columbia (B-CAR) ara.bc.ca

Alberta (AARDA) aarda.com

B-CAR is part of the Automotive Retailers Association of B.C. It has completed construction of the training courses for its recycler certification program. Three online courses were developed in total. Each course covers the standards and expectations for recyclers registered in the certification program. The three courses are Dismantler Orientation, Inventory Management and ICBC Standards of Performance. B-CAR is asking the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) to support the program by encouraging collision repair shops to give preference to certified recyclers, all other things being equal. There are approximately seventy-five recyclers active on the Recycled Parts locator (Allied Information) with the majority being members of B-CAR. According to a statement from B-CAR, the ultimate vision for the program will be to have everyone on the Allied system become certified.

Since the AARDA convention in late September, most of the association’s activities have revolved around the government, including advising the province on what requirements should be placed on licensed recyclers. AARDA feels very strongly that protecting our environment is something worth working for. On the membership front, SGI joined AARDA as an associate member after a year’s absence. Barez Recycling located in Calgary and Eagle Tec Recycling from Edmonton both joined as associate members for their first year. They are looking to become full members once they have passed a CAREC audit.The AARDA website is being reworked. They are adding a special page for the insurance industry and repair facilities. The 2018 conference has been set for September 21 and 22 in Drumheller, the dinosaur capital of the world.

B-CAR fait partie de l’Automotive Retailers Association de la Colombie-Britannique. (B-CAR) a terminé l’élaboration de la formation de son programme de certification des recycleurs. Trois cours en ligne ont été développés au total. Chaque cours couvre les normes et les attentes à l’égard des recycleurs inscrits au programme de certification. Les trois cours sont : Directives de démantèlement, Gestion des stocks et Normes de performance de l’ICBC. B-CAR demande à la compagnie d’assurance de la Colombie-Britannique (ICBC) d’appuyer le programme en incitant les ateliers de réparation de carrosseries à privilégier les recycleurs certifiés. Il y a environ 75 recycleurs actifs sur le localisateur de pièces recyclées (Allied Information), la majorité étant des membres de B-CAR. Selon une déclaration de B-CAR, la vision ultime du programme sera de faire certifier tout le monde sur l’Allied system. ICBC et B-CAR ont rétabli le comité de liaison et ont tenu deux réunions depuis. Il y a eu des changements de personnel à l’ICBC et il semble y avoir un regain d’intérêts pour la coopération. En avril 2016 lors de son assemblée générale annuelle, B-CAR a officiellement élu Jim LeBrun au poste de président de B-CAR.

Depuis la dernière convention de l’AARDA à la fin septembre, la plupart des activités de notre association ont tourné autour du gouvernement, notamment en conseillant la province sur les exigences qui devraient être imposées aux recycleurs autorisés. L’AARDA est très convaincue que la protection de notre environnement est quelque chose qui mérite d’être travaillé. En ce qui concerne les adhésions, SGI a rejoint l’AARDA en tant que membre associé après une année d’absence. Barez Recycling situé à Calgary et Eagle Tec Recycling d’Edmonton se sont joints à titre de membres associés pour leur première année. Lorsqu’ils auront passé l’audit du CAREC, ils veulent devenir des membres à part entière. Le site web de l’AARDA est en réaménagement. Nous ajoutons une page dédiée à l’industrie de l’assurance et aux ateliers de réparation. La conférence de 2018 aura lieu les 21 et 22 septembre à Drumheller, la capitale mondiale des dinosaures.

The Saskatchewan Auto Recyclers Association (SARA) is finishing up its sixth year in operation. 2017 saw the development of the association’s website. SARA members continue to operate in compliance with the Canadian Auto Recyclers’ Environmental Code. The association continues to face challenges in growing membership as a result of having to compete against non-members who don’t have to comply with the same recycling standards. The SARA board has taken steps to lobby for environmental legislation for the automobile recycling industry in Saskatchewan. SARA has a small but stable membership base of fourteen members. SARA will make growing membership a priority for 2018. An annual membership meeting is planned for the spring.

The Auto Recyclers Association of Manitoba (ARM) is proud of the efforts of board member Émile Hogue from Aime’s Auto Parts in Winnipeg, Manitoba, who was commended for his dedication to the Switch Out program, and for initiating a zero mercury scrap policy. For a more in depth look at Hogue’s works with fellow ARM board members Greg Lane of Progressive Auto Parts and George Shea of Direct Auto Parts to represent the industry in Manitoba, check out this issue’s cover story on page 19.

SARA termine sa sixième année d’activités.  2017 a vu développement du site internet de l’association.  Venez nous voir au www.saskautorecyclers.ca. Les membres de la SARA continuent de fonctionner conformément au Code environnemental des recycleurs automobiles du Canada (CERAC).  En raison de la concurrence avec les non-membres qui n’ont pas à se conformer aux mêmes normes de recyclage, l’association continue d’être confrontée aux défis d’augmenter le nombre de ses membres.  Le conseil d’administration du SARA a pris des mesures pour faire pression en faveur d’une législation environnementale à l’égard de l’industrie du recyclage automobile en Saskatchewan. SARA a une petite base de quatorze membres mais elle est stable.  En 2018, l’augmentation du nombre de membres sera une priorité pour la SARA. Une réunion annuelle des membres est prévue au printemps.

ARM est fier des efforts du membre du conseil Émile Hogue de Aime’s Auto Parts à Winnipeg, au Manitoba, qui a été applaudie pour son implication au programme Switch Out et pour son initiative Politique zéro déchet mercure. Pour un portrait plus approfondi du travail de Hogue pour représenter l’industrie au Manitoba et de la collaboration avec les membres du conseil d’administration d’ARM, Greg Lane de Progressive Auto Parts et George Shea de Direct Auto Parts, consultez l’article à la une de ce numéro à la page 19.

Ontario is home to Canada’s newest regulations relating to end-oflife vehicle processors. While the new regulation to register kicked in back in 2016, the operating standards became a reality for processors on September 30, 2017. The association is working with the government, members, non-members, shredders, mobile crushers, scrap buyers and others to implement the registration requirements and operating standards. As with any new regulations, the competent enforcement of the new rules is paramount to their success, and OARA is well positioned to affect positive change for its members and the overall industry.

The Automotive Recyclers Association of Atlantic Canada, founded as the Maritime Auto Wreckers Association in 1972, continues to be a robust voice representing the professional auto recyclers in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. In 2017, ARAAC members voted to publish the results of each member’s independently audited Canadian Auto Recyclers’ Environmental Code scores (CAREC). The organization is proud to have had 28 of its 30 member facilities receive grades of 85 percent or higher, with most facilities receiving either gold or platinum awards for their work.

L’Ontario est le siège des plus récentes règlementations canadiennes en matière de traitement des véhicules en fin de vie utile. Alors que la nouvelle règlementation d’inscription au registre a été lancée en 2016, les normes d’exploitation sont devenues une réalité pour tous les opérateurs le 30 septembre 2017. L’association travaille activement à la mise en œuvre efficace et concrète des exigences d’enregistrement et des normes opérationnelles avec le gouvernement, les membres, les non-membres, les broyeurs, les concasseurs mobiles, les ferrailleurs, c’est-à-dire avec toutes personnes impliquées dans la chaîne d’approvisionnement. Comme pour toute nouvelle réglementation, l’application compétente de ces nouvelles règles est primordiale à leur succès. L’OARA est bien placée pour opérer des changements positifs pour ses membres et à l’ensemble de l’industrie.

L’ARAAC, fondée en 1972 sous le nom de Maritime Auto Wreckers Association, continue d’être une voix robuste qui représente les recycleurs automobiles professionnels du Nouveau-Brunswick, de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Scotia, l’Îledu-Prince-Édouard et Terre-Neuve. En 2017, les membres de l’ARAAC ont voté POUR la publication des notes de tous les membres ayant été audités de manière indépendante pour le Code environnemental canadien des recycleurs d’automobiles (CAREC). L’organisation est fière d’avoir obtenu des notes de 85 % ou plus pour 28 de ses 30 établissements membres, la plupart d’entre eux ont reçu des prix or ou platine pour leur travail.

OARA members raise more than a million dollars for the Sunshine Foundation Over the course of the last eight years, OARA Members and partners (Haulers, OTS, OFA) have been raising funds to sponsor a Dreamlift with the Sunshine Foundation through the annual Tire Take Back event. A national charitable organization that makes dreams come true for children living with severe physical disabilities and life-threatening illnesses. Our total, you ask? A whopping $1,116,974 raised by our collecting more than half-a-million tires. On April 24, 2018, a Dreamlift will fly out of London to Disney for the day with two OARA Members on board Brittanie Hammel from Valley Automotive and Darrell Pitman from P&G Auto. We are delighted that these esteemed members will be representing our industry. We are working with the Sunshine Foundation on other volunteer opportunities for the event, like the information night on April 23, and we will keep members posted on those opportunities. Having been on a Dreamlift, and been at two information nights, they are heartwarming and life-changing events. Thanks for your involvement in making this a great program. Warm regards, Steve Fletcher, executive director of OARA

hey call it “Friendly Manitoba.” For Winnipeg auto recyclers Emile Hogue, George Shea and Greg Lane, that statement isn’t simply their province’s motto; it’s how they navigate through the auto recycling industry. The three recyclers live and operate successful recycling yards in the city Winnipeg, in Manitoba. Even though they operate as competitors, their success stems directly from their camaraderie and their ability to work together. The auto recycling industry, like most industries, is facing a number of changes due to a wave of new technological developments along with an everchanging market. Recycling yards are becoming bigger and often offer much more than they did years ago, with the advent of e-commerce and parts shipping. Greg, George and Emile are true believers that the future of the industry lies in our ability to work along side one another, as they have for many years. Canadian Auto Recyclers magazine took the time to talk with Greg, George and Emile in order to gain a deeper insight on what makes their operations work so well, how they initially came in to the industry and what they believe is in store for the industry’s future.

F

or Greg Lane, auto recycling is a dream, though his passion lies in strengthening his relationships with his fellow recyclers. “I call it co-opetition,” says Greg. “I’ve worked alongside Emile and George for a long time and I’ve always been certain that I needed anything, they would be there for me. We help each other out so much that clients think we are sister companies!” Greg began his career initially in the crane industry. He was offered a position as an auto recycler by an acquaintance and took a leap of faith. This leap of faith is what led him to Progressive Auto Parts, which he bought in 1996. Greg is passionate about helping out his fellow recyclers in Winnipeg, although this type of cooperation wasn’t always the norm. As Greg puts it: “There used to be a line in the sand until I extended the olive branch to Emile. George came in soon after and we’ve had each other’s backs ever since.” The three recyclers work alongside one another in trading parts as well as on the Auto Recyclers of Manitoba (ARM) board. “In this type of industry, which is changing every single day, it is important to have colleagues to whom you can speak to freely and openly,” says Greg. “Working together helps us to keep on top of industry trends as well as the newest technology.” Greg also takes pride in helping his community in various ways. His facility has sponsored one student from the University of Manitoba, who completed a thesis on ELV’s with help from Greg and his team. Greg’s doors are also always open to the local fire department, so that they may use the facility for training in vehicle extraction. Greg’s path through the industry is a true portrait of success through cooperation and team effort.

P

our Greg Lane, le recyclage automobile est une véritable passion, bien que sa passion soit également de renforcer ses relations avec ses collègues recycleurs. « J’appelle ça de la co-opétition », dit Greg. « Je travaille avec Emile et George depuis plusieurs années et j’ai toujours été certain que si j’avais besoin de quoi-que-se-soit, ils seraient là pour moi.

que nos clients pensent que nous sommes des sociétés partenaires! Greg a débuté sa carrière dans l’industrie de la grue. Il s’est vu offrir un poste de recycleur automobile par une de ses connaissances et a pris une chance. Ces cette décision qui l’a amené à Progressive Auto Parts, la cour qu’il a acheté en 1996. Greg est un passionné de l’entraide entre collègues, bien que ce type de coopération n’a pas toujours été la norme. Comme Greg le dit: «Il y avait une ligne dans le sable jusqu’à ce que j’aie étendu la branche d’olivier à Emile. George est arrivé peu après et nous nous entraidons depuis. » Les trois recycleurs travaillent côte à côte en s’échangeant des pièces ainsi que dans le conseil d’administration de l’Association des Recycleurs Automobiles du Manitoba (ARM). « Dans ce type d’industrie, qui change tous les jours, il est important d’avoir des collègues à qui vous pouvez parler librement et ouvertement», explique Greg. « Travailler ensemble nous aide à rester à jours avec les tendances de l’industrie ainsi que de la plus récente technologie. »

Greg est également fier d’aider sa communauté de diverses façons. Son établissement a parrainé un étudiant de l’Université du Manitoba, qui a complété une thèse sur les véhicules hors d’usage avec l’aide de Greg et de son équipe. Les portes de Greg sont également toujours ouvertes au service d’incendie local, de sorte qu’ils peuvent utiliser l’installation pour la formation en extraction de véhicules. Le parcours de Greg à travers l’industrie est un véritable portrait de succès grâce à la coopération et à l’effort d’équipe.

George Shea Direct Auto Parts

G

eorge Shea entered the world of auto recycling like many, through the autobody repair industry. George started his career in the automotive industry straight out of high school, when an autobody technician visited his senior year class. George was the only one in class to raise his hand when the tech asked who would like to become an autobody technician. Away he went. Through working in the automotive industry, George was eventually introduced into auto recycling through Leo Feeleus, founder of the Auto Recyclers of Manitoba (ARM). Shortly afterwards, George became a member himself and eventually took ownership of Direct Auto Parts. Direct Auto soon became an industry leader and saw the need for an alternative to factory OEM parts. In 2002, Direct Auto expanded its offering to include rebuilt engines and transmissions. Under the Winnipeg Engine & Trans brand, this provided customers with even more choices, making Direct Auto Parts a one-stop shop. Like his two competitors, Emile and Greg, George is quite keen on the power of cooperation. “Winnipeg is not that big of a town,” says George. “Just as it’s important to maintain a good relationship with your clients, it’s important to maintain a strong relationship with your fellow recyclers.” George, Emile and Greg have worked on the ARM board for years and as George puts it: “We’ve always got each other’s back.” In this ever-changing industry, George is keen on keeping up to date with the latest technology and e-commerce opportunities. Though he has never lost track of what truly matters: good communication and a strong foundation of trust in fellow industry stakeholders.

En travaillant dans le secteur de l’automobile, George a finalement été initié au recyclage automobile par Leo Feeleus, fondateur de l’Association des Recycleurs Automobiles du Manitoba (ARM). Peu après, George est devenu membre et a finalement pris la charge de sa cour actuelle, Direct Auto Parts, à Winnipeg. Direct Auto Parts est rapidement devenu un leader de l’industrie et a vu la nécessité d’une alternative aux pièces OEM d’usine. En 2002, Direct Auto a élargi son offre afin d’inclure les moteurs et les transmissions reconstruites. Sous la marque Winnipeg Engine & Trans, les clients ont encore plus de choix, faisant de Direct Auto Parts un guichet unique. Comme ses deux concurrents, Emile et Greg, George comprend très bien le pouvoir de la coopération. «Winnipeg n’est pas une très grande ville», dit George. “Tout comme il est important de maintenir une bonne relation avec vos clients, il est important de maintenir une relation solide avec vos collègues.” George, Emile et Greg ont travaillé au conseil d’administration de l’ARM pendant des années et, comme le dit George: «Nous nous sommes toujours soutenus l’un l’autre. »

Dans cette industrie en constante évolution, George tient à se tenir au courant des dernières opportunités en matière de technologie et de commerce électronique. Bien qu’il n’ait jamais perdu la trace de ce qui compte vraiment; une bonne communication et une base solide de confiance dans les autres parties prenantes de l’industrie.

mile Hogue has been in the automotive industry his entire life. Growing up in a family of repairers, it is no wonder that he now operates one of Winnipeg’s largest recycling yards. “I learned to repair cars in school although my very first job was delivering papers,” says Hogue. “I received a call from my brother one day, who had just bought Aime’s Auto Parts. He offered me a job and I officially began working in the auto recycling industry.” Hogue was 19 when he began his career as an auto recycler. It didn’t take long before he felt the need to own his own yard. After working alongside his brother for nearly a decade, Emile decided to become a partner of Aime’s Auto Parts. Now the yard’s sole owner, he devotes his efforts to preserving a high customer service standard within his organization. “Times are changing and the market isn’t what it used to be,” says Hogue. “E-commerce, however, is rising and customer service requires far more than it used to. That is why we always answer the phone and follow-up on everything with a second call. It is something our customers praise us for.” Aime’s’ success is also one of partnership and camaraderie. Working alongside fellow Automotive Recyclers of Manitoba (ARM) members George Shea and Greg Lane has allowed Emile to give even more attention to his customers. “We benefit from one another,” says Hogue. “Although we are technically rivals in Winnipeg, we trade parts and help each other out in any way that we can.” As for the business side of things, Emile and his team at Aime’s continue to succeed through one simple yet crucial rule: the customer comes first. With the advent of future technologies in auto-recycling, Emile truly believes that no matter what happens, customers will always be the priority. CAR

Après avoir travaillé aux côtés de son frère pendant près d’une décennie, Emile a décidé de devenir partenaire d’Aime’s Auto Parts. Il possède maintenant la cour et travaille fort afin de maintenir une bonne éthique de travail ainsi qu’un bon service à la clientèle. « Les temps changent et le marché n’est plus ce qu’il était », explique Hogue. « Le commerce électronique est en plein essor et le service à la clientèle exige beaucoup plus qu’auparavant. C’est pourquoi nous répondons toujours au téléphone, nous fessons toujours le suivi et nos clients nous en félicitent. » Le succès d’Aime’s est aussi celui du au partenariat et à la camaraderie. Travaillant aux côtés de ses collègues et membres de l’Association des Recycleurs Automobile du Manitoba (ARM), George Shea et Greg Lane, ont permis à Emile de fournir le maximum à sa clientèle. « Nous profitons les uns des autres”, explique Hogue. “Bien que nous soyons rivaux sur le plan technique à Winnipeg,

Beyond the industry

Au-delà de l’industrie

DEVIl in a Red Minivan Le DIABLE Dans un minivan The details of the case against Bruce McArthur are grizzly. Police say the portly 66-year-old gardener and occasional mall Santa stalked Toronto’s gay community for half-a-decade, luring men to their deaths and burying their corpses beneath the flowerbeds he tended to. Now charged with the first-degree murder of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, Dean Lisowick, Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman, McArthur’s downfall came through the dogged efforts of police inspectors. The trail they followed might have run cold, had it not been for McArthur making one slip-up—selling his minivan to auto recycler Dom Vetere.

Bruce McArthur is charged with the murder of five men in the Toronto area. Bruce McArthur est accusé du meurtre de cinq hommes dans la région de Toronto.

L

Les détails de l’affaire contre Bruce McArthur sont flous. Selon la police, le corpulent jardinier de 66 ans et Père Noël occasionnel du centre commercial aurait harcelé la communauté gay de Toronto durant un demi-siècle, attirant des hommes à leur mort et enterrant leurs cadavres sous les plates-bandes qu’il entretenait. Accusé du meurtre au premier degré de Majeed Kayhan, de Soroush Mahmudi, de Dean Lisowick, de Selim Esen et d’Andrew Kinsman, la capture de McArthur est survenue grâce aux efforts obstinés des inspecteurs de police. La piste qu’ils suivaient serait restée sans avenue, si McArthur n’avait pas fait une erreur, vendre sa minifourgonnette au recycleur automobile Dom Vetere.

ast September, when an older man arrived at Dom’s Auto Parts and sold his scarlett Dodge Caravan to Dominic Vetere in Oshawa, Ontario, there was very little indication that anything was wrong. The man was polite, relaxed and not in a tremendous rush. In fact, Vetere only remembers one unusual thing about the sale—McArthur was not interested in haggling, he shook on the initial offer of $125. It would be weeks before Vetere—or anyone else in the shop— thought about the sale again. In early October, police, who were canvassing Toronto recyclers that bought end-of-life vehicles, arrived to ask if a red Dodge Caravan had been sold by an older man. “It was still there, sitting in the yard, and the only thing that was missing was the speedometer.” Had McArthur sold it to an unlicensed scrapper—or a licensed one who was a little lax about paperwork—the van might have been impossible to connect to the suspected killer. But McArthur chose Dom’s. As with every sale, Vetere had made sure to sign the ownership documents and to register the vehicle’s unique VIN code. For good measure, it was photocopied as well. By checking the paperwork and video, Vetere was able to confirm that the car was the same one sold by McArthur and also the time-of-sale, and that it was McArthur who had made the sale. They were even able to connect police to the person who had bought the speedometer. “‘That’s our guy,’ the police said as we looked back over the security footage,” Vetere recalls. “Had he gone to an unlicensed scrapper, that all that information could have been totally lost.”

E

n septembre dernier, alors qu’un homme de la misoixantaine s’est présenté pour vendre sa Dodge Caravan rouge chez Dominic Vetere de Dom’s Auto Parts à Oshawa Ontario, rien n’indiquait que quelque chose n’allait pas. L’homme était poli, détendu et pas très pressé. En fait, Vetere se souvient seulement d’une chose inhabituelle au sujet de la vente, McArthur n’était pas intéressé à marchander, il a accepté l’offre initiale de 125 $. Il se passera des semaines avant que Vetere ou quelqu’un d’autre du magasin ne repense à cette vente. Au début octobre, les policiers visitaient les recycleurs de Toronto qui achetaient des véhicules en fin de vie. Ils en sont arrivés à demander si un Dodge Caravan rouge avait été vendu par un homme plus âgé. “Il était toujours là, assis dans la cour, et la seule chose qui manquait était le compteur de vitesse.” Si McArthur l’avait vendu à un recycleur non autorisé ou à un autre avec sa licence mais un peu laxiste sur la paperasse, il aurait pu être impossible de connecter la camionnette au présumé tueur. Mais McArthur a choisi Dom’s Auto Parts. Comme à chacune de ses ventes, Vetere s’est assuré de signer les documents de propriété et d’enregistrer le code VIN unique du véhicule. Et pour bien faire, iI y avait également une photocopie. En vérifiant la paperasse et la vidéo, Vetere a pu confirmer que la voiture était la même que celle vendue par McArthur et le moment de la vente aussi et que c’était McArthur qui avait fait la vente. Ils ont même été en mesure de connecter la police avec à la personne qui avait acheté le compteur de vitesse.


Au-delà de l’industrie

It would not be until the middle of January that Vetere was told why the vehicle was of interest to the police, but he and his staff—who had remained in contact with police —already knew that the vehicle was involved in something quite sinister. “When they asked to take the vehicle away to their downtown facility, they asked us all to provide DNA swabs so they could ignore it when swabbing the insides,” says Vetere. “I have worked with police on a few hit-and-run cases over the years, so we knew this was not routine for an investigation.” When news of McArthur’s arrest broke, Vetere had received word that the minivan had, indeed, played an important role in building the case against his one-time client. “They told me that they found trace amounts of blood,” says Dominic. “Nothing visible to the naked eye, but visible under UV lights.” Upon sharing the news with his team, there was a tremendous sense of relief. His staff had, naturally, been curious about the occasional phone calls made about the vehicle, and the news that it had played a role in stopping a murder suspect left them feeling immensely proud of their methodical record-keeping. Relief, however, would be short-lived. When the staff Googled the killer, they also saw the pictures of the two men he had been initially charged with killing. One was familiar. “Andrew Kinsman, one of the guys who went missing, was an occasional client. When our staff saw his picture in connection to the case we had been helping with, it was a shock.” In the weeks since his arrest, McArthur has been charged with the murder of three men, and police are actively unearthing the flowerbeds he was known to have done work on. While it is unclear if any more charges will be laid, the Crown intends to see McArthur tried later this year. CAR

“C’est notre homme”, a déclaré la police alors que nous regardions les images de sécurité », se souvient Vetere. “S’il était allé chez un recycleur non autorisé toute cette information aurait pu être totalement perdue.” Ce n’est qu’à la mi-janvier que Vetere a appris pourquoi le véhicule intéressait la police, mais lui et son personnel qui était resté en contact avec la police, savaient déjà que le véhicule était impliqué dans quelque chose de tout à fait sinistre. “Lorsqu’ils ont demandé d’amener le véhicule à leur établissement au centre-ville, ils nous ont demandé de fournir des prélèvements d’ADN afin de les ignorer lors de l’échantillonnage”, explique M. Vetere. “J’ai travaillé avec la police sur quelques cas de délits de fuite au cours des années, alors nous savions que ce n’était pas une enquête de routine. ” Lorsque les nouvelles de l’arrestation de McArthur ont éclaté, Vetere avait entendu dire que la fourgonnette avait effectivement joué un rôle important à la fabrication de la preuve contre son acheteur ponctuel. “Ils m’ont dit qu’ils ont trouvé des traces de sang”, explique Dominic. “Rien de visible à l’œil nu, mais visible sous les lumières UV.” En partageant les nouvelles avec son équipe, il y a eu un énorme sentiment de soulagement. Son personnel était naturellement curieux au sujet des appels téléphoniques occasionnels concernant ce véhicule et la nouvelle qu’il avait joué un rôle dans l’arrestation d’un suspect de meurtre les avait rendus extrêmement fiers de leur méthodique tenue de dossiers. Le soulagement, cependant, serait de courte durée. Quand les membres du personnel se sont mis à chercher des nouvelles du tueur, ils ont aussi vu les photos de deux hommes qu’il avait d’abord été accusé de tuer. L’un d’eux était un visage familier. Andrew Kinsman, un des hommes disparus, était un client occasionnel. Quand notre personnel a vu sa photo en rapport avec l’affaire pour laquelle nous avions aidé, c’était un choc.” Dans les semaines qui ont suivi son arrestation, McArthur a été accusé du meurtre de cinq hommes, et la police déterre activement les parterres de fleurs sur lesquels il travaillait. Jusqu’à présent, les restes de six personnes ont été retrouvés, bien que seul Kinsman ait été identifié. Bien qu’il ne soit pas clair si d’autres accusations seront portées, la Couronne s’attend à ce que McArthur soit jugé plus tard cette année. CAR

When provincial Attorney General David Eby described the Insurance Company of British Columbia’s books, he did not mince his words, calling them “financial dumpster fire.” His language was understandable, as the company is estimated to have lost $1.3 billion dollars in 2017.

new NDP government began looking for something to blame— the public insurer’s executives, the recently deposed Liberals and, after an employee came forward with claims that the ICBC was being routinely overbilled by shops, the collision repair community. Provincial Automotive Retailer Association spokesman Adam Grossman has struck back against this report, as did the ICBC itself, pointing out that the unsubstantiated claims failed to take into account the fact that the price of new parts was becoming more and more expensive. “We don’t want to be accused of that 30 percent increase because we’re not getting it,” said McCormack, “Our labour rates have not changed. The high price of parts can push up the cost of a simple headlight repair to $10,000.” The ARA also provided the province with a series of recommendations in order to reduce billing costs, including giving local recyclers preferential access to written-off vehicles in order for the province to maintain a larger stock of like new OEM parts. The suggestion is one that the British Columbia Auto Recyclers (B-CAR) have welcomed. B-CAR chairman Jim LeBrun believes that the idea of passing write-off vehicles to registered recyclers is a particularly sensible approach because it would help shore up the reserve of parts that recyclers keep in their inventory. “We can reduce prices, that’s for sure,” says B-CAR chairman Jim LeBrun. “Headlights can cost $5,000 new. As long as we have access to the parts, we are able to provide them to repairers for much less money.” Reactions from recyclers outside the province have also been supportive of the idea—while it may be local businesses that benefit from the particular policy, the fact that repair shop owners have put forward recyclers is being taken as a sign that the automotive aftermarket may be coming around to accepting the importance of recycled OEM parts.

estimé que l’entreprise aurait perdu 1,3 milliard de dollars en 2017. Après qu’un employé ait divulgué que l’ICBC étaient régulièrement facturée en trop par des ateliers de carrosserie, il n’était pas non plus surprenant de voir le nouveau gouvernement néo-démocrate commencer à chercher quelque chose ou quelqu’un à blâmer, comme les dirigeants de l’assureur public ou les libéraux récemment destitués. Le porte-parole de la Provincial Automotive Retailer Association, Adam Grossman, a riposté, tout comme l’ICBC elle-même, soulignant que ces allégations non fondées ne tenaient pas compte de la hausse du prix des pièces neuves, de plus en plus onéreuses. “Nous ne voulons pas être accusés de cette augmentation de 30 % parce que nous ne la recevons pas”, a déclaré McCormack, “Nos taux de main-d’œuvre n’ont pas changé. Le prix élevé des pièces peut faire grimper le coût d’une simple réparation de phares à $10,000.” L’ARA a également fourni à la province une série de recommandations visant à réduire les coûts de facturation, notamment en donnant aux recycleurs locaux un accès préférentiel aux véhicules radiés afin de permettre à la province de maintenir un plus grand stock de pièces d’origine comme neuves. Cette suggestion a été bien accueillie par les Recycleurs automobiles de la Colombie-Britannique (B-CAR). Le président de B-CAR, Jim LeBrun, croit que l’idée de transférer les véhicules radiés aux recycleurs sur le registre est une approche particulièrement judicieuse parce qu’elle aiderait à consolider la réserve de pièces que les recycleurs gardent en inventaire. “Nous pouvons réduire les prix, c’est certain”, a déclaré Jim LeBrun, président de B-CAR. “Les phares neufs peuvent coûter $5,000. Tant que nous avons accès aux pièces, nous sommes en mesure de les fournir aux réparateurs à moindre coût. “ La réaction des recycleurs à l’extérieur de la province soutient également cette idée, même si ce sont les entreprises locales qui bénéficient de la politique en question. La reconnaissance accordée aux recycleurs par les propriétaires d’atelier de réparation est perçue comme un signal que le marché de l’après-vente accepte l’importance des pièces OEM recyclées. “Chaque fois que nous voyons des réparateurs et des assureurs parler de travailler avec notre industrie, c’est une bonne chose,” explique

“Anytime we see repairers and insurers talking about working with our industry, it is a good thing,” says David Gold. “Recyclers are able to make the best use of vehicles. We are able to keep costs low, we can often provide the parts more quickly than the manufacturer and we are a lot better for the environment. The more insurers and repair shops think about us, the more seriously we will be taken.” Over the next few months, the independent auditing firm PriceWaterhouse Cooper will be pulling old billing records to investigate the claims of over-billing. While it is unlikely that the province will take any firm action towards favouring local recyclers until the report’s release, the ICBC, desperate to find its way back into the black, may move forward with the suggestions of its own accord­—and repair shops have every reason to be on board. “If the shop makes more money selling an OEM part, then it is a problem,” says Gold. “But there is no reason that should be the case. Using cheaper parts involves as much labour.” Whether local recyclers will be able to is an open question, though one that LeBrun is quite confident about answering. “We can absolutely play a big role in getting repair costs lowered, and the finances back on-track at ICBC,” he says. “We just need the chance.” CAR

Nous sommes en mesure de maintenir des coûts bas, nous pouvons souvent fournir des pièces plus rapidement que le fabricant et nous sommes beaucoup sains pour l’environnement. Plus les assureurs et les ateliers de réparation pensent à nous, plus nous serons pris au sérieux. “ Au cours des prochains mois, la firme d’audit indépendante PriceWaterhouse Cooper tirera d’anciens dossiers de facturation pour enquêter sur les réclamations de facturation en trop. Bien qu’il soit improbable que la province prenne des mesures fermes pour favoriser les recycleurs locaux jusqu’à la publication du rapport, l’ICBC, qui a désespérément besoin de se ramener ses chiffres dans le positif, peut appliquer les suggestions de son propre chef, et les ateliers de réparation ont toutes les raisons du monde d’être d’accord. “Si l’atelier fait plus d’argent en vendant une pièce d’origine, alors c’est un problème”, explique Gold. “Mais il n’y a aucune raison que ça soit le cas. L’utilisation de pièces moins chères implique autant de travail. ” La question à savoir si les recycleurs locaux en auront la capacité demeure une question ouverte, mais LeBrun semble assez confiant pour y répondre. “Nous pouvons absolument jouer un grand rôle dans la réduction des coûts de réparation et l’assainissement des finances de l’ICBC”, dit-il. “Nous avons simplement besoin de l’opportunité.” CAR

n this day and age, an online presence along with a strong position within the social sphere is crucial for a successful business. Auto recyclers are no exceptions when it comes to the digital revolution. John Logel and Matt Jacobs of Logel’s Auto Parts, in Kitchener, Ontario, have strived to achieve a strong presence within the online world through various means ranging from informative content to fun facts and activities surrounding their facility. Logel is the owner of Logel’s Auto Parts and has worked within the industry since he was twelve years old. Jacobs is the marketing director for the company and as such takes charge of anything related to the company’s image and its presence on social media outlets. Since Logel’s Auto Parts opened in 1959, they’ve been committed to providing the best customer service experience to their customers. In order to do this, they’ve designed their entire business around maximizing efficiency and organization. Their computerized inventory helps them stay on top of their inventory, reduce waiting times, as well as allow their customers to search for products online. They also deliver any necessary parts right to their customer’s mechanics, saving them a trip to their shop and the inconvenience of transporting parts. These innovations, combined with an all-star team, are what help them stand out from the other automotive recyclers in the area. Canadian Auto Recycler magazine sat down with Logel and Jacobs in order to gain some insight on their successful online formula. “The advent of the Internet and social media separated everyone in the automotive recycling industry, although they also opened up some new doors,” says Logel. “You can now quote clients remotely and sell products that would typically never sell,” he adds. 40

Depuis l’ouverture de Logel’s Auto Parts en 1959, l’entreprise s’engage à fournir la meilleure expérience de service à leurs clients. Pour ce faire, ils ont conçu l’ensemble de leurs activités en optimisant l’efficacité et l’organisation. Leur inventaire informatisé leur permet de rester au top de leur inventaire, de réduire les temps d’attente et de permettre à leurs clients de rechercher des produits en ligne. Ils livrent également toutes les pièces nécessaires directement aux mécaniciens de leurs clients, ce qui évite au client un voyage et l’inconvenance de transporter des pièces. Ces innovations, combinées avec une équipe d’étoiles, sont ce qui les aide à se démarquer des autres recycleurs automobiles de la région. Le magazine Canadian Auto Recycler s’est réuni avec John et Matt afin d’avoir un aperçu de leur formule de réussite en ligne. « L’avènement de l’Internet et des médias sociaux a séparé tout le monde dans l’industrie du recyclage automobile, même s’ils ont également ouvert de nouvelles portes », explique John. « Vous pouvez désormais coter des clients à distance et vendre des produits qui ne se vendraient jamais auparavant », ajoute-t-il. John et Matt font un usage important des médias sociaux dans leurs activités quotidiennes. L’un de leurs usages les plus innovants concerne leur blog en ligne, où ils publient sur une variété de sujets. « On ne peut pas le nier; Notre équipe chez Logel’s est passionnée par ce que nous faisons. Nous utilisons ce blog pour partager ce que nous savons sur le recyclage automobile, notre communauté et toutes nos voitures », explique Matt. Ces articles sont non seulement informatifs et à jour, mais ils sont aussi amusants et attrayants. C’est un excellent moyen d’attirer l’attention des lecteurs et de communiquer avec eux à un niveau plus personnel.

Posts include a wide variety of contents including charity events, holiday activities as well as Cujo, the facility’s adorable little dog. “Instagram and Facebook are geared toward mobile phone users as they are easier to navigate through on a phone rather than on a computer,” explains Jacobs. “This allows us to connect with a wider range of people and it also allows us to promote our name.” Another social aspect affecting any business today is the power of Google reviews and the influence they carry. For Logel and Jacobs, these reviews are a direct line of communication between them and their clients. “We answer each and every one of our reviews,” says Jacobs. “If our customers are kind enough to leave us a note on how we did, its only fair to respond in kind.” The Internet also allows people to gain further education on the price of parts, where to find them, as well as how to recognize quality. It’s important to take note of this in order to succeed in the advent of e-commerce, which has lately made strides in the auto recycling industry. It’s inevitable; the future of the industry requires a good understanding of the Internet and the many marketing advents it can offer. The use of Facebook, Instagram and Google can boost operations on the business level as well as personal. Clients today heavily refer to these media outlets in order to find the facilities that suit their needs. Like many recyclers making use of the Internet and social media as marketing tools today, Logel’s understands that a great online presence will allow them to grow and prosper with the automotive recycling industry.

Pour John et Matt, ces critiques sont une ligne de communication directe entre eux et leurs clients. « Nous répondons à chacune de nos critiques », explique Matt. « Si nos clients sont assez aimables pour nous laisser une note sur la façon dont nous les avons servis, c’est juste de leur répondre de même. » L’Internet permet également aux gens de mieux se renseigner sur le prix des pièces, où les trouver, ainsi que sur la façon de reconnaître la qualité. Il est important de prendre note de cela afin de réussir au sein du commerce électronique, qui a récemment fait des progrès dans l’industrie du recyclage automobile. C’est inévitable, l’avenir de l’industrie exige une bonne compréhension de l’Internet et des nombreux avantages de marketing que cela peut offrir. L’utilisation de Facebook, Instagram et Google peut stimuler les opérations au niveau de l’entreprise ainsi qu’au niveau personnelle. Aujourd’hui, les clients se réfèrent fortement à ces médias afin de trouver les installations qui répondent à leurs besoins.

t will be a momentous year for automotive recyclers and other supporters of the circular economy. The public— and the environmental lobby in particular—will begin to understand the role recyclers play in the fight to reduce carbon emissions.  Insurers, too,  will begin to see the light—though for very different reasons, fiscal ones. While those seeking to take a bite out of the recycling market have become increasingly brazen in their references to ‘junkyards’ and claims that a recycled OEM part isn’t really an OEM part, those claims will begin to fall apart. Too good to be true? Don’t be so pessimistic. Environmentalists have rarely rallied behind automotive recycling for two reasons. The first is a general wariness of lending any support to automotive projects. The second is a lack of information about auto recyclers, and why their role in the circular economy is so vital to efforts to reduce humanity’s carbon footprint. That may be about to change. In January, a small study published by a trade school in Massachusetts gave recyclers the thing they have been missing for years—scientific data to back up their claims about why their work was important. Worcester Technical College—a leading metallurgical school —attempted to tally the scale of carbon savings brought about

e sera une année mémorable pour les recycleurs automobiles et tous les autres partisans de l’économie circulaire. Le public­­—et le lobby environnemental en particulier - commencera à comprendre le rôle joué par les recycleurs dans la lutte en faveur de la réduction des émissions de carbone. Bien que pour des raisons très différentes puisqu’elles seront fiscales, les assureurs aussi commenceront à voir la lumière. Pendant que ceux qui cherchent à se faire une place dans le marché du recyclage sont de plus en plus effrontés en se référant aux “cours à scrap” et en prétendant qu’une pièce d’origine recyclée n’est plus réellement une pièce d’origine du manufacturier, ces prétentions commenceront à s’effriter. Trop beau pour être vrai? Ne soyez pas si pessimiste. Les environnementalistes ne se sont jamais ralliés au recyclage automobile pour deux raisons. La première est la méfiance générale à prêter main forte aux projets automobiles. La seconde est le manque d’informations au sujet de l’économie circulaire et pourquoi elle est si vitale dans leurs efforts pour réduire l’empreinte carbone de l’humanité. Tout ceci est peutêtre sur le point de changer. En janvier, une petite étude publiée par une école de commerce du Massachusetts a donné aux recycleurs la chose qui leur manquait depuis des années, des données scientifiques pour étayer leurs affirmations à propos de l’importance de leur travail. Le Collège Worcester Technical, une école métallurgique de premier plan a tenté de mesurer l’ampleur des économies de carbone réalisées grâce au recyclage automobile dans le Massachusetts. En recyclant environ 150 000 véhicules chaque année, ils ont réduit l’empreinte totale de l’État d’environ 2 millions de tonnes, soit 2,5 %. Lorsque David Gold, le président de l’Association du recyclage automobile, a vu les chiffres, il est tombé de sa chaise avant de se lever et de convoquer une réunion avec le conseil de l’ARA. Durant cette réunion, il a été décidé que le conseil rencontrerait des environnementalistes de Washington. “Ça fait des années que nous présentons des arguments environnementaux, mais nous avons toujours manqué de données scientifiques claires “, dit Gold,” ça c’est quelque chose que nous pouvons citer en disant : “Voici les preuves, elles sont indépendantes, elles sont scientifiques, elles sont fiables “

by safe automotive recycling in Massachusetts. The answer was staggering—by recycling about 150,000 vehicles each year, Massachusetts recyclers reduced the state’s total footprint by  about 2 million tonnes—2.5 percent. When Automotive Recycling Association president David Gold saw the numbers, he fell out of his chair, before picking himself up and calling for a meeting with the ARA boards—a meeting where it was resolved that the board would meet with environmentalists in Washington.   “We have been making the environmental case for years, but we have always lacked clear scientific data,” Gold says, “this is something we can point to and say ‘here is the evidence—it is independent, it is scientific, it is reliable.” While the idea of Massachusetts manufacturers environmental efforts being roughly equivalent to taking almost 400,000 vehicles off the road might sound unbelievable, it is important to understand how the numbers were reached.  So, how could the cost of not recycling a vehicle be as environmentally damaging as 30 months of driving it? If we just consider an entirely scrapped vehicle, think about what a reduction in metal demand can prevent. It takes an immense amount of fossil fuel to mine ore and purify into ingot. A scrapped vehicle is simply melted down—no mining and purification required. Next, there are the savings that come from making productive use of the parts that are put to new, productive purposes, rather than being scrapped. When parts are manufactured directly, auto workers drive to their factories, their factories use energy to reshape plastics, weld metals and machine parts—all of which have also needed energy to be produced.  While little attention is traditionally paid to the costs of manufacturing car parts, it is an issue that Steven Fletcher, managing director of the Automotive Recyclers of Canada,  has been struggling to bring to the public’s attention for years. “The circular economy favours reuse component over recycling. Recycling is great, but we can make more of an impact through reusing.”

Circular Economy

Bien que les efforts déployés par les constructeurs automobiles du Massachusetts soient à peu près équivalents au retrait d’environ 400 000 véhicules de la route et que ce résultat puisse sembler incroyable, il est important de comprendre comment ces chiffres ont été atteints. Alors, comment le coût de ne pas recycler un véhicule pourrait-il être aussi néfaste pour l’environnement que 30 mois de conduite automobile? Considérez simplement un véhicule complètement recyclé, pensez à la réduction de la demande en métal et à ce qu’elle peut éliminer. Il faut une énorme quantité de combustible fossile pour extraire du minerai et le purifier en lingot. Un véhicule recyclé est simplement fondu sans aucune extraction ni purification requise. Ensuite, il y a les économies qui découlent de l’utilisation efficiente des pièces qui sont réusinées à des fins utiles plutôt que d’être mises au rebut. Lorsque les pièces sont directement fabriquées en usine, les travailleurs conduisent jusqu’à leurs usines, leurs usines utilisent de l’énergie pour remodeler des plastiques, souder des métaux et des pièces de moteurs qui ont également nécessité de l’énergie pour être produites. Traditionnellement, peu d’attention est accordée aux coûts de fabrication des pièces d’automobile. C’est pourquoi depuis de nombreuses années, Steven Fletcher, le directeur général d’Automotive Recyclers of Canada, a eu du mal à attirer l’attention du public sur cet enjeu. “L’économie circulaire favorise la réutilisation plutôt que le recyclage. Le recyclage est génial, mais nous pouvons avoir plus d’impact par le biais de la réutilisation. “ Jusqu’à présent, le public et le gouvernement ont fait preuve d’un manque de compréhension presque totale sur cette question, entraînant des décisions que Fletcher et Gold trouvent exaspérantes. “Après qu’ils aient induit en erreur la population sur l’efficacité énergétique de leur véhicule, Volkswagen a mis au rancart toutes ces voitures. J’ai pensé que c’était complètement fou », dit Gold, « ce qui s’était passé était malveillant mais en gaspillant autant de véhicules qui étaient malgré tout étonnamment peu gourmands en carburant, ils ont causé beaucoup plus de dégâts.”

So far, however, the public and government have shown a near-total lack of understanding about the issue, leading to decisions that both Fletcher and Gold find maddening. “When Volkswagen scrapped so many cars after it emerged that they had been misleading people about fuel efficiency, I thought this is absolutely crazy,” Gold says, “What happened was wrong, but by wasting of so many vehicles—which were still remarkably fuel efficient—they caused much more damage.” Already an avid supporter of the industry, Gold had previously worked with the University of Windsor on studies looking at the environmental impact of recycling end-of-life vehicles. With the arrival of the Massachusetts study, however, Gold believes auto recyclers could benefit from increased academic attention in all areas. “I would love to see ARA members come together to help with studies about the industry, already, you don’t have to be an eco-freako to realize we are important,” says Gold, adding that, “The more insurers and OEMs understand the economic benefits of working together, the more they will be willing to bring down barriers for us and be willing to work together.” While some auto recyclers may feel that relations between their industry, OEMs and insurers has floundered in recent years, Gold’s optimism is not entirely unfounded. Fletcher also believes that inter-industry relationships will soon be on the upswing. “The biggest roadblock for our industry is that dealers are thinking short-term. They make more money selling a new part—they make short term profits at our expense, but that could hurt them in the long-term.”

Canadian Auto Recyclers 2018

Déjà un fervent partisan de l’industrie, Gold a travaillé avec l’Université de Windsor sur des études portant sur l’impact environnemental du recyclage des véhicules en fin de vie utile. Toutefois depuis l’étude du Massachusetts, M. Gold croit que les recycleurs automobiles pourraient bénéficier d’une plus grande attention académique dans tous les domaines. ‘’J’aimerais voir les membres de ARA s’unir pour soutenir les études au sujet de notre industrie, vous n’avez pas besoin d’être un écologiste pur et dur pour réaliser que nous sommes importants.’’ dit Gold en ajoutant : ‘’Plus les assureurs et les manufacturiers comprennentles bénéfices économiques de la coopération, plus ils voudront faire tomber les barrières pour nous et travailler en coopération.’’ Bien que certains recycleurs automobiles peuvent penser que les relations entre leur industrie, les manufacturiers et les assureurs ont battu de l’aile ces dernières années, l’optimisme de Gold n’est pas entièrement sans fondement. Fletcher croit également que les relations interindustrielles auront bientôt le vent dans les voiles. “Le plus gros obstacle pour notre industrie est la pensée à court terme des concessionnaires. Ils gagnent plus d’argent en vendant une nouvelle pièce, ils font des profits à court terme à nos dépens, mais cela risque de leur nuire à long terme.’’ Avec des véhicules de plus en plus complexes, les métaux utilisés dans leur fabrication deviennent de plus en plus chers. “Leur demande dépasse l’offre et il sera beaucoup plus onéreux de fabriquer un véhicule sans nous », explique Fletcher. “Tant les recycleurs que les fabricants auraient avantage à réduire ces divisions arbitraires.”

In April, the ARA executive team will meet with legislators and environmentalists in Washington D.C. En Avril, l’ARA rencontrera des législateurs et des environnementalistes à Washington D.C.

With vehicles becoming increasingly complex, the metals used in manufacturing them become more and more expensive. “Their demand outweighs the supply, and it will become much more expensive to make a vehicle without us,” says Fletcher. “Both recyclers and manufacturers would benefit from reducing the arbitrary divisions.” Though some manufacturers may be uncertain of the benefit of working more closely with the recycling sector, insurance companies are a little more open-minded. This year, wholesale prices of used vehicles reached an all-time high after America saw its most damaging storm season—and insurers looked to save money by soliciting repair parts from recyclers, rather than OEMs. When the ARA and ARC board meets with Washington environmentalists, the ARA has two goals in mind—the first is to encourage their partners to begin to recognize how much recyclers are already doing to reduce the automotive sector’s carbon footprint and push the American government to support the circular economy at a legislative level. On that front, Fletcher has already been successful in his work north of the border, especially in Ontario. The Ministry of the Environment has already worked to create a game plan for encouraging the populace to buy into the circular economy. “A circular economy would also push manufacturers to develop products that are longer lasting, more durable, and use sustainable materials that can be easily recycled,” adding that the province will only benefit if they are able to secure the support of “producers, municipalities, waste management service providers and consumers.” The ARA’s second goal is to convince environmental leaders to make automotive recycling a buzz topic in the environmental community— something Fletcher also believes could be far more beneficial than any governmental assistance. “Apple spent years encouraging customers to buy new cellphones instead of repairing their phones,”  but when they got caught slowing them down, consumers began pushing back.” CAR

Bien que certains fabricants sont incertains à l’égard des bénéfices à tirer d’une collaboration étroite avec le secteur du recyclage, les compagnies d’assurance sont un peu plus ouvertes d’esprit. À la suite de la saison de pluie la plus dévastatrice qu’ait connu l’Amérique, plutôt que d’utiliser des pièces neuves du manufacturier, les assureurs ont cherché à économiser de l’argent en sollicitant des pièces de rechange auprès des recycleurs. Cette année, les prix de vente au détail des véhicules d’occasion ont atteint un niveau record. Lors de la rencontre du conseil ARA avec les environnementalistes de Washington, l’ARA a deux objectifs en tête : le premier est d’encourager leurs partenaires à reconnaître ce que les recycleurs font déjà pour réduire les émissions de carbone générées par le secteur de l’automobile et à pousser le gouvernement américain à supporter l’économie circulaire au niveau législatif. Sur ce plan, Fletcher a déjà réussi son travail au nord de la frontière, tout particulièrement en Ontario. Le ministère de l’Environnement a déjà travaillé à la création d’un plan d’actions pour encourager la population à croire en l’économie circulaire. “Une économie circulaire inciterait également les fabricants à développer des produits plus durables, plus résistants et à utiliser des matériaux durables facilement recyclables “, ajoutant que la province n’en bénéficiera uniquement si elle obtient le soutien des “ producteurs, des municipalités, des fournisseurs de services en gestion des déchets et des consommateurs. “ Le deuxième objectif de l’ARA est de convaincre les chefs de file environnementaux de faire du recyclage automobile un sujet de discussion dans la communauté environnementale. Fletcher croit aussi que cette stratégie pourrait être beaucoup plus bénéfique que n’importe quelle aide gouvernementale. “Apple a passé des années à encourager les clients à acheter de nouveaux téléphones cellulaires au lieu de faire réparer leur téléphone’’ mais quand ils ont été pris au dépourvu, les consommateurs ont commencé à dire non.’’ CAR

Ontarians should be proud of the commitment they’ve shown to responsible tire recycling. It’s through initiatives like Tire Take Back that have helped contribute to recycling more than 100 million tires in the province.” This year marked a significant increase in support from the farming community, with the highest number of agricultural tires donated

t’s a sad fact that people leave marks on the Earth wherever we live. This seems especially true in Canada’s far north, where a lack of expertise and transportation routes mean that end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) simply pile up over the years. A project that started a few years ago is changing that, and bringing the benefits of professional automotive recycling to communities that have never experienced it before. Tundra Take-Back is a joint project between Scout Environmental, local communities in Canada’s north and the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC). The project requires professional recyclers to step up and travel to remote communities to help local people learn to properly depollute and recycle end-of-life vehicles cluttering the landscape. Beautification of the land is not the only or even primary goal. Vehicles contain numerous fluids that could cause serious environmental damage if they’re allowed to leak and contaminate the soil and groundwater. Paul Bell is the general manager of Poehl’s Auto Recyclers in Kentville, Nova Scotia. He traveled to Kuujjuarapik in northern Quebec for two weeks at the end of August to help get the project off the ground in nearby communities. “We worked with two separate communities in the same area, one is First Nations and the other is Inuit,” says Bell. “Each has ➪

C

’est triste, mais les gens laissent des marques partout sur la Terre où nous devons tous vivre ensemble. Cela semble particulièrement vrai dans le Grand Nord canadien, où le manque d’expertise et de voies de transport fait en sorte que les véhicules hors d’usage s’accumulent simplement au fil des ans. Un projet qui a débuté il y a quelques années est en train de changer cela, et de faire profiter les collectivités des avantages du recyclage automobile professionnel qui ne l’ont jamais expérimenté auparavant. Tundra Take-Back est un projet conjoint entre Scout Environmental, les collectivités locales du Nord canadien et l’Association des Recycleurs Automobiles du Canada Automotive (ARC). Le projet exige que les recycleurs professionnels intensifient leurs efforts et se rendent dans les collectivités éloignées afin d’aider les habitants à dépolluer et à recycler correctement les véhicules en fin de vie qui encombrent le paysage. L’embellissement de la terre n’est pas le seul objectif, ni même le principal. Les véhicules contiennent de nombreux fluides qui pourraient causer de graves dommages environnementaux, contaminer le sol et les eaux souterraines. Paul Bell est le directeur général de Poehl’s Auto Recyclers à Kentville, en Nouvelle-Écosse. Il s’est rendu à Kuujjuarapik, dans le nord du Québec, pendant deux semaines en fin d’août pour aider à lancer le projet dans les collectivités avoisinantes. « Nous avons travaillé avec deux communautés distinctes dans la même région, l’une est ➪ CanadianRecycler.ca

a separate dump, so we worked with three people from each community, teaching them how to drain the fluids properly and semi-crush the cars.” The environmental aspect of automotive recycling takes centre stage in this project. It’s not about removing quality parts for sale, or even about the scrap value of the metal. The crushed hulks remain on the site for the time being. If the price of scrap steel rises, the community can choose to sell them at that time, possibly realizing a monetary profit as well as an environmental one. “Some of these vehicles have been back there for years,” says Bell. “We found a couple of old Bombardier snow track machines that have probably been there for decades.” Bell notes that it’s not just about vehicles. The dump is also home to fridges, freezers and other items that contain potentially harmful materials. These were also properly drained and set aside. The other recycler volunteer was Darrell Pitman of P & G Auto Parts in North Bay, Ontario. This isn’t Pitman’s first trip. He traveled to Nunatsiavut in Labrador in 2015. It seems obvious that Pitman was proud of his earlier efforts. In fact, he got a tattoo to commemorate the occasion. “The tools and equipment we use stay in the communities, so the people we trained can continue the work on their own,” says Pitman. “I just like giving back to the community. They appreciate it so much.” This time around, Pitman traveled to Cape Dorset, located on the southern tip of Baffin Island in Nunavut. Like Bell, he was there for two weeks to train members of the community and get them started. There are significant challenges to properly

Il ne s’agit pas de retirer des pièces de qualité pour la vente, ni même de déterminer la valeur de la ferraille du métal. Les carcasses broyées restent sur le site pour le moment. Si le prix de la ferraille augmente, la communauté peut choisir de le vendre à ce moment-là, réalisant éventuellement un profit monétaire et environnemental. « Certains de ces véhicules sont là depuis des années », dit Bell. « Nous avons trouvé quelques vieilles machines à neige de Bombardier qui sont probablement là depuis des décennies. » Bell souligne qu’il ne s’agit pas seulement de véhicules. La décharge abrite également des réfrigérateurs, des congélateurs et d’autres articles qui contiennent des matériaux potentiellement dangereux. Ceux-ci ont également été correctement drainés et mis de côté.

A central part of the Tundra Take-Back project is training local people to continue the work towards the future. Un aspect central du Tundra Take-Back est de former les locaux afin qu’ils puissent continuer à bien travailler à l’avenir.

recycling vehicles in the north, including a lack of recycling infrastructure, a lack of training and the high cost of shipping vehicles south for recycling. Thanks to the recycler volunteers and Scout Environmental, some of those barriers have fallen in a number of communities. Much work still needs to be done to return Canada’s north to a pristine state, but efforts to date have already removed tons of scrap metal, hundreds of lead-acid batteries, thousands of tires, and nearly uncountable litres of oil, gasoline, antifreeze and other contaminants. If it stopped now, Tundra Take-Back would still be considered a success. However, the project shows no signs of slowing down. We can’t wait to see what professional auto recyclers, local people and Scout Environmental can do next summer. CAR Darrell Pitman of P&G Auto Parts examines an end-of-life vehicle with some of the crew. The goal is not to salvage parts in these cases, but to mitigate environmental damage.

The Tundra Take-Back project has a profound effect on the communities where it takes place. Judging by the tattoo Darrell Pitman received in 2015, it has a profound effect on the recyclers involved as well.

L’autre bénévole recycleur était Darrell Pitman de P & G Auto Parts à North Bay, en Ontario. Ce n’est pas le premier voyage de Pitman. Il s’est rendu au Nunatsiavut au Labrador en 2015. Il semble évident que Pitman était fier de ses efforts précédents. En fait, il s’est fait tatouer pour commémorer l’occasion. « Les outils et l’équipement que nous utilisons restent dans les collectivités, de sorte que les personnes que nous formons peuvent continuer le travail par leurs propres moyens », affirme M. Pitman. « J’aime simplement redonner à la communauté. Ils l’apprécient vraiment. » Cette fois, Pitman s’est rendu à Cape Dorset, situé à l’extrémité sud de l’île de Baffin, au Nunavut. Comme Bell, il était là pendant deux semaines pour former les membres de la communauté et les aider à démarrer. Il y a des défis importants à relever pour recycler correctement les véhicules dans le

Nord, y compris le manque d’infrastructures de recyclage, le manque de formation et le coût élevé de l’expédition des véhicules vers le sud pour le recyclage. Grâce aux bénévoles recycleurs et à Scout Environmental, certaines de ces barrières sont tombées dans un certain nombre de communautés. Il reste encore beaucoup à faire pour ramener le nord du Canada à un état vierge, mais les efforts ont déjà permis d’éliminer des tonnes de ferraille, des centaines de batteries au plomb, des milliers de pneus et des quantités incalculables de pétrole, d’essence et d’antigel. Si cela s’arrêtait maintenant, le projet serait toujours considéré comme un succès. Cependant, le projet ne montre aucun signe de ralentissement. Nous sommes impatients de voir ce que les recycleurs automobiles professionnels, les locaux et Scout Environmental feront l’été prochain. CAR CanadianRecycler.ca

Last year, more than 1,000 participants continue to achieve incredible results in the proper removal of automotive switches across Canada. The collection sweep saw more than 17,000 automotive switches collected and properly disposed of. Although we have seen decreasing numbers from Switch Out’s peak collection years, switch collection still spans from densely populated areas, like Vancouver and Toronto to some smaller remote communities such as Kuujjuarapik and Cape Dorset in Nunavut.

his November’s annual Automobile Recycler’s Association (ARA) convention saw more than 900 delegates from 16 countries arrive in Dallas, Texas to see 96 company exhibitions and 31 special presentations from industry leaders and academics. As the evening came to a climax, the Canadian delegates stood particularly proud as David Gold, former CEO of Standard Auto Wreckers in Toronto, became the association’s president. The fourth Canadian-born president, the stirring gavel passing ceremony capped-off the evening’s awards banquet. Also in attendance was Prince Edward Islander Dalbert Livingstone of Island Auto Supply in Charlottetown who was recently named the regional director in Canada, and Nova Scotian Ed MacDonald of Maritime Auto Parts in Truro who chaired the ARA Scholarship Committee.

Comme la soirée arrivait à son paroxysme, les délégués canadiens se sont sentis particulièrement fiers de David Gold, ancien chef de la direction de Standard Auto Wreckers à Toronto, qui est devenu le quatrième président canadien de l’association à clôturer cette soirée de banquet et de distinctions.

The convention also hosted its first international delegates reception, which brought various countries together for networking. As the lead representative of the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC), Steve Fletcher chaired his last affiliate chapter committee meeting and was recognized at the awards ceremony for five years of service in that capacity. The most serious item on the convention’s agenda, however, was the recyclers roundtable—an open mic session where industry players were invited to speak about common challenges and propose common solutions. The roundtable came to a consensus on several of the issues discussed. It was widely agreed that the industry must push for access to OEM data in order to understand how to sell more parts from every car. Beyond economic reasons, it was agreed that without access to OEM data at the manufacturer and recycler level, it became harder-and-harder to respond to the growing number of mass recalls.  Another issue tackled by the delegates was the growing trend of OEM repair procedures specifically banning the use of all salvage or recycled parts, and the difficulty of making repairs on vehicles with ever more complex computerized components.

Avec un nombre record de participation d’associations d’états, provinciales et nationales, la convention a également lancé sa première réception internationale de délégués qui réunissait plusieurs pays pour une séance de réseautage. À titre de représentant principal des Recycleurs automobiles du Canada (ARC), Steve Fletcher a présidé sa dernière réunion et reçu une distinction lors de la cérémonie de remise des prix pour ces cinq années de service à ce titre.  Cependant la période la plus sérieuse de la convention s’est déroulée durant la séance de micro ouvert de la Table ronde durant laquelle les acteurs de l’industrie étaient invités à parler des défis communs et à proposer des solutions communes. La table ronde a abouti à un consensus sur plusieurs des questions discutées. Il a été largement accepté que l’industrie doit se concentrer sur l’accès aux données OEM afin de comprendre et vendre plus de pièces de toutes les automobiles. Au-delà des raisons économiques, il a été convenu que sans l’accès aux données OEM, tant au niveau des fabricants que des recycleurs, il devenait de plus en plus difficile de répondre au nombre croissant des rappels massifs de pièces. Une autre question abordée par les délégués a été la tendance croissante des procédures de réparation des manufacturiers de pièces d’origine d’interdire spécifiquement l’utilisation de toutes pièces récupérées ou recyclées, et de la difficulté de réparer des véhicules avec des composants informatiques de plus en plus complexes.

The convention’s host, a long-time ARPAC member, and Centre du Camion Lussier founder Gabriel Lussier, also used the event to mark his business’ 50th anniversary. Decorating his shop with the décor of the quiet revolution, ARPAC members arrived in 60s-themed dress.

Over the course of the convention, the ARPAC foundation raised more than $40,000 for the unfortunate, with help from generous donors, insurers, suppliers and recyclers.

n life, we find that certain paths are carved out for us, or boarded up and blocked from us based on physical traits. In the trades, women often experience long-standing obstacles that make it difficult to take on leadership roles. This does not always have to be the case. Nathalie Boivin, owner of Recyclage d’autos StLazare in Quebec, did not let any obstacles halt the pursuit of her passions­—or even slow her. She walked straight into a leadership role, balancing traditionally feminine and masculine roles with aplomb. “I am a woman, a mother and a business executive. But most of all I am someone with a passion for her trade, even after twenty years,” says Boivin. Boivin’s came to the auto recycling industry as an office clerk. She met her former spouse there and together they purchased their own facility in 1998. She oversaw the administrative side of the business, setting up a parts inventory system and managing customer service. All the while, Boivin focused on absorbing as much knowledge as she could. A decade and a divorce later, she bought out her ex’s shares. “I learned the trade through my spouse’s experience, customers, mechanics, suppliers and our competitors,” she says.“I loved what I was doing and had my own views on the trade. I wanted to take on new challenges.” Later, in 2011, she applied for a seat on ARPAC’s board of directors. “I had the intent of bringing

Dans le cas des métiers, les femmes font souvent face à des oppositions persistantes qui rendent difficile l’exercice d’un leadership. Mais ça n’a pas être toujours le cas. Nathalie Boivin, propriétaire de Recyclage d’autos StLazare au Québec, n’a laissé aucun obstacle arrêter la poursuite de ses passions ni même la ralentir. Elle est entrée directement dans un rôle de dirigeante tout en équilibrant les rôles traditionnellement féminins et masculins avec aplomb. “Je suis une femme, une mère et une dirigeante d’entreprise. Mais surtout, je suis quelqu’un de passionné pour son métier, même après vingt ans”, explique Boivin. Boivin est arrivé dans l’industrie du recyclage automobile en tant que commis de bureau.

“My passion encourages other women to invest themselves in their fields of interest.” - Nathalie Boivin

“Ma passion est d’encourager les autres femmes à s’investir dans leurs champs d’intérêt.” - Nathalie Boivin “My passion encourages other women to invest themselves in their field on interests. The recycling industry goes hand-in-hand with the reduction of our ecologic footprint, a cause that touches women profoundly. As mothers, we all want to leave a healthy planet for our children and grandchildren,” she concludes. Boivin has a piece of advice for women interested in taking up leadership roles in male-dominated industries. In a nutshell—use femininity to your advantage. “Women are not appreciated as much because of their sensitivity, but it is an asset. Our decision-making process is much more deliberate,” Boivin. “Generally, we are more meticulous and thorough.” Diversity in all things can have a truly positive impact on any and every industry. “Gender diversity brings different visions. A man may want a car for its performance and a woman may opt for reliability, but the two go hand-in-hand. We are complementary in our diversity, which makes for a greater industry.” According to Boivin, it is vital that women stand in solidarity, respecting and encouraging each other. This, she feels, will help lower barriers in the trades and help industries thrive. CAR

Ma passion encourage d’autres femmes à s’investir dans leur domaine d’intérêts. L’industrie du recyclage va de pair avec la réduction de notre empreinte écologique, une cause qui touche profondément les femmes. En tant que mères, nous voulons toutes laisser une planète saine à nos enfants et petits-enfants.,” elle conclut. Boivin a un conseil à donner aux femmes qui souhaitent occuper des postes de direction dans les industries à prédominance masculine. En un mot, utilisez la féminité à votre avantage. “Les femmes ne sont pas tant appréciées à cause de leur sensibilité, mais c’est un atout. Notre processus décisionnelle est beaucoup plus délibérée “, Boivin. “Généralement, nous sommes plus méticuleuses et approfondies.” La diversité en toutes choses peut avoir un impact vraiment positif sur n’importe quelle industrie. “La diversité des genres apporte des visions différentes. Un homme peut vouloir une voiture pour sa performance et une femme peut opter pour la fiabilité, mais les deux se complètent. Nous sommes complémentaires dans notre diversité, ce qui créera une meilleure industrie.” Selon Boivin, il est vital que les femmes soient solidaires, se respectent et s’encouragent les unes les autres. Elle croit que cette attitude aidera à abaisser les barrières dans les métiers et à aidera les industries à prospérer. CAR

Who Dares,

Wins Canada’s auto recyclers deal with industry changes in style

I

n this issue of Canadian Auto Recycler, we have profiled the industry leaders and visionary companies that are at the forefront of the automotive recycling industry. 2017 was a turbulent year for the industr y. OEMs continued to take bites out of recycler’s profits, hurricanes played havoc with wholesale vehicle prices, and international crackdowns began against the dark side of the industry—organized, multinational chop shops. The storm is not yet over. 2018 may be just as dramatic—but take comfort. The Canadian automotive recyc ling business is filled with inspirational people who are finding new approaches to the industry ’s most pressing challenges, and businesses reshaping themselves in order to best

deal with the needs of tomorrow’s consumers. From the businesses reshaping the way the day-to-day work is done with new technology, to individuals who have found environmentally sensible solutions to some of the most significant challenges facing the industry today, we invite you to think of this section as an index of the movers and shakers you cannot afford to forget. Industry newcomers should take note of these industr y players—keep tabs on how they do business, because they are already shaking things up. And for all those bigwigs out there, here are all the reasons you cannot afford to rest on your laurels—if you don’t already know these names, it is because they are already in your blindspot, just about to pass you by.

On the Horizon Bodyline Auto Recyclers strategizes for growth Bodyline Auto Recyclers in Hamilton, Ontario, purchases entire end of life (EOL) vehicles and recycles them using environmentally friendly practices. They also purchase late model wrecks through auction and repair shops. Selling end of life vehicles can be a convenient alternative to selling a car at an auction—and a better practice for the environment. According to Eric McDonald, manager of Bodyline, there are practical business benefits to purchasing entire cars, rather than limiting themselves to individual car parts. “The more we get the more we flourish,” he said, continuing, “Getting full vehicles helps us provide quality used parts to shops.”

Canadian Auto Recyclers 2018

A couple of fairly significant changes are coming to Bodyline this year. Jim McDonald, co-owner of Bodyline, is retiring. He had owned the facility along with his brother— and Eric’s father—Dave McDonald. Jim was responsible for the day-to-day tasks of the business, and was heavily involved with purchasing. “He’s been essential to this business for a number of years, and we want to thank him for his years of service,” said Dave. Second on the docket for big changes this year, Bodyline is merging with two of its yards as part of an effort to expand the number of vehicles in its inventory. “We’re going to go from having a couple hundred cars to over one

thousand,” said Eric. According to Eric, they will be able to ship out car parts twice a day to their Hamilton hub, and the entire inventory can be easily accessed online. Bodyline Auto Recyclers is dedicated to protecting the environment. The McDonalds don’t work on vehicles outdoors, in an effort to keep vehicle fluids contained and out of nearby soil and water bodies. “We’ve always captured our fluids—we’ve never turned a blind eye to the environment,” commented Eric. According to Eric, their fluid removal process has become much more streamlined, and he hopes to continue to improve and renovate Bodyline’s process.

Knowledge is Power Boston Auto Wreckers knows The know-how market has collapsed—it is our smartphones fault. Want to bake your wedding cake? Google it. Want to install your own bathtub? Ask an app. Want to figure out why your car doesn’t work? Just type in the symptoms. But know-how isn’t knowledge. Knowledge is how you stay in business as an auto recycler in an era when the industry is being squeezed on every side, and it is what you rely on when your living is based on informed gambles about what parts should fill your stockroom. Knowledge is what true recycling professionals, like Boston Auto Wreckers GM Mike Maio, bring to the table, and why their business remain steady in an industry that is anything but. “When I first started, the parts to fix four cars could be found in two, but now it takes

six to fix just one!” says Maio, remembering a time not-so-long-ago, “we could make money on used spark plugs—but now they are five bucks brand new.” It isn’t just new parts that are cutting into the sales of recyclers. Without worrying about making payroll, managing inventory or dealing with waste disposal in an environmental way, anyone can make money stripping down parts from their car to sell online. “With online sales, and parts coming in from overseas, the value of a recycled vehicle isn’t where it used to be,” says Maio, who has been with Boston Auto Wreckers since 2005. “Now we are a bit more like pharmacists—we stock parts that people can’t find anywhere else­— because the OEMs aren’t making them, and the online

ISLAND AUTO SUPPLY

Focus on operations

Increasing Complexity Island Auto Supply is rising to meet today’s challenges Island Auto Supply takes the expired “junk yard” image still often associated with auto recyclers, and shatters it into a million pieces with modern technology,environmentally friendly procedures and low prices. The Prince Edward Islandbased business is the largest supplier of used and new aftermarket auto and truck parts, and automotive replacement parts in the province. Dalbert Livingstone and his wife, Tabitha Livingstone, purchased Island Auto Supply back in 2013, though the company itself has been in business for over 30 years. Since then, the couple has taken enormous steps in improving the facility. Bar coding, tablets and draining equipment have been introduced to the business in an effort to improve and develop on the technological side of things.

Perhaps to Dalbert Livingstone the most crucial characteristic of their business is its dedication to the environment. “We’ve really raised the bar in terms of environmental awareness.” According to Dalbert Livingstone,a friend of his initiated a “friendly competition”on becoming environmentally friendly, acompetition that auto recycling facilities across PEI got involved with.“We’re helping keep mercury out of landfills and pollution out of the atmosphere,” said Dalbert Livingstone. There’s no doubt that there are serious benefits to protecting the environment, but Dalbert Livingstone notes that this has positive results in the world of business, too. “It’s been a great marketing tool. We’ve gotten a lot of positive media for our initiatives.”

Dalbert and Tabitha Livingstone.

The Livingstones have also introduced to their consumers the option of buying products online, through Island Auto Supply’s Ebay store. Doing so has many obvious benefits. It makes the buying experience all the more convenient, improves consumer confidence in the products they’re buying and increases the number of potential buyers who are exposed to their business. “Customers can see exactly what they’re buying when they go on our webpage,” commented Dalbert Livingstone. “Purchasing auto parts online was definitely a thing that was missing in this industry—a market that wasn’t tapped into.” For more information about Island Auto Supply, please visit islandautosupply.com.

Miller’s Auto Recycling

Focus on operations

Celebrate Success Miller’s Auto Recycling turns 65 As their recycling business embarks on its 65th year in business, the Miller family is celebrating their continued success while acknowledging the challenges faced by their predecessors. In 1952, when Gordon Miller set the business in motion in Fort Erie, Ontario, he did not have any of the guidance that the next two generations of Millers would be able to depend upon as they learned the ropes. He just had business acumen and raw talent. Today, the business is in the hands of his grandchildren Chris and Natalie Miller, who have taken a page from their grandfather’s playbook. A fact that Gordon’s son believes would have made his father very proud. “Over the last few years, the focus has shifted back to the core business of used auto part sales,” says Jim. “I could not be prouder seeing the next generation so dedicated to the growth

of our used parts sales and so committed to our customers’ needs.” The business would not be where it is today without a strong customer base. With so many options in today’s market, Miller’s is striving to differentiate itself from the competition. “By providing quality used parts and guaranteeing a high level of service, we are continually improving everyday,” says Chris. Currently revising their shipping and receiving process, and constructing an enclosure around the loading dock, Chris and Natalie look forward to a space that can more effectively manage quality control inspections, handle packaging and loading of delivery vehicles. In keeping focused on customer service, this past year Miller’s mandate focused on technology. “Our operational flow after implementing new production management software has al-

P&G Auto Parts

The True North P&G Auto Parts weathers all storms

Though the auto recycling business in North Bay can be wild and unpredictable as a Nippissing storm, P&G Auto Part has weathered both since the late 1940s. Customers trust P&G to provide them with the parts they need to keep their vehicles running during our brutal winters and all too fleeting summers. With a hard-earned reputation as one of the most reliable, convenient and customerfocused facilities in Northern Ontario, co-owner Darrell Pitman does not hide what it takes to keep the brand strong. “It really is simple. If you do good work, help your community grow strong and provide them with the parts they need, things will work out.” While Darrell’s work as the president of the local minor hockey association may keep him involved in the North Bay community, his involvement in the Take Back and Brightlift projects has seen him travel as far away as Nunavut, Labrador and, later this year, to Florida. Located at 534 Gormanville Road off Hwy 17 in North Bay, P&G Auto is a family-owned business, with Darrell and Jerry Pitman and Mike “Beaver” Vaillancourt at its helm. With automotive dismantling and recycling is the heart of the business, P&G acquires older vehicles from individuals as well as insurance companies. The highly trained employees identify which parts are in prime condition for recycling. The parts are then removed from the vehicle, refined to as-new condition and provided to customers who need them.

Where P&G truly stands out is with its innovative approach to satisfying customers in need of parts that are not easily available. P&G is equipped with the tools, from online databases to their two satellites and a voice lines, that help them be found, whether in the inventory or from another supplier in North America.Should an external search be required,P&G sends notices to suppliers, and, once located, the part is shipped to P&G for the customer to pick up. That, in a nutshell, is the pact that has allowed the business to thrive: at P&G, you will always find friendly service, a knowledgeable staff and the part you need.

Standard Auto Wreckers

Industry Standard Standard Auto Wreckers sets the pace It has been quite the year for Standard Auto Wreckers, a Toronto-based recycling facility that both buys vehicles for wrecking and scrap, and sells parts through Off The Shelf Ready To Go and its own U-Pick yard, tire shop and auto parts store. In September, at the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) Gala in Dallas, Standard Auto Wreckers’ own David Gold was named the international organization’s president. It wasn’t just Dave’s committment as an industry advocate, or his more than 25 years of experience in charge of a top-tier recycling facility that secured his nomination. Dave and his team at Standard Auto Wreckers have a long history of helping the industry as-a-whole develop the tools necessary to better extract value from vehicles, both by streaming the salvaging process, and by improving the business model.

As far as process improvements are concerned, Standard’s methods have lived up to their name. In fact, a 2014 study on the industry by the University of Windsor focused on the company’s efficiency in processing ELVs.

As a businessman, Dave, who also serves as president and vice president of Fenix Auto Parts—a corporate entity he helped to launch in cooperation with other progressive recycling firms —has simplified the process for customers to find what they need. Today, Standard boasts both a call centre staffed by trained customer service specialists and an easy-to-navigate inventory of engines, transmissions, auto-glass and other parts. While Dave’s work with the ARA means he has taken a step back from his work at Standard and Fenix, he is confident that both organizations are in safe hands. “Every good idea that we have had at Standard and Fenix has been through has been the result of a team effort, but it goes a lot further than that,” says Gold. “I can’t wait to see where things go from here.”

Owner and operator Frank Serravalle and his team couldn’t be more proud of their work at the tenth International Roundtable on Auto Recycling, held in Niagara last Autumn. As one of the two official yards opened up to the delegates from around the globe. “It was an honour to represent what it means to be a progressive recycler in Canada,” says Frank. “It was a thrill to see industry leaders from all corners of the globe see our facility in action.” It should come as no surprise that Thorold was selected, along with Millers Auto Parts, to represent the best of the Canadian auto recycling community. The 2 sq km operation, which has ten dismantling bays, conducts all crushing on site.

“We’re processing about 3,000 vehicles a year and with that volume it just makes sense to make the investment to do our own crushing,” says Frank.

With such a tremendous number of vehicles to process, Frank has also added a full-service mechanical shop with three full-time technicians. While the addition allowed Frank’s less technically savvy customers to buy more difficult-to-install parts, it impressed many of the delegates who were not used to such service being provided by a recycler. “It really compliments our parts sales business,” says Frank. “Actually, we’ve seen it increase parts sales, as well as parts sales often increasing the mechanical business. Our mechanical customers are buying more parts, and our parts customers are more often asking us to install them as well.” For more information, please visit thoroldauto.com.

Buffalo Engine Components The company has grown tremendously in the last 20 years

B

uffalo Engine Components (BEC) is a family owned and operated business in Buffalo, New York started in 1980. The company began with two partners, Andy and Salvatore Pellitieri, and a pick-up truck used to buy automotive cores to sell to the automotive aftermarket. The partners rented 5,000 sq. ft. in a building and within a couple years had outgrown their first home. Joe Pellitieri Sr. came aboard with his brother Salvatore and cousin Andy in 1984. The three bought a new building in 1985 with 50,000 sq. ft. on a few acres and continued to grow the business. The company began as a full line core supply company providing cores to the small part, engine and transmission rebuilding industries. Today the company remains focused on its origins, but has added scrap metal recycling, aluminum sow production and retail sales of transmission rebuilding products to broaden its revenue streams. With the addition of family members Jason, Paul, Mary, John, Joe Pellitieri Jr. and Marc Parisi the company has grown tenfold in the last 15 years. BEC currently owns and operates a 330,000 sq. ft. facility and has grown to a workforce of close to 150 employees. Our fleet of roll off trucks and containers give our suppliers a resource to help keep their facilities in order while always receiving competitive value for their material. Today BEC processes 1,000 tons of automotive parts per week, including dismantling 450 engines and 900

Engines and transmissions that have value to the rebuilding industry are cleaned of their accessories and are sorted and palletized for sale to our customers. The units that do not have value as complete units often have value in their component parts. BEC sells a large quantity of cylinder heads, cranks, cams and other engine components to its

rebuilders. BEC is also one of the largest suppliers in North America of reclaimed transmission internal hard parts and torque converters. BEC also carries a full line of remanufactured torque converters, new electronics, frictions, steels, gasket sets and guaranteed good used transmission hard parts for transmission rebuilding shops as well as the home mechanic. The engine and transmission dismantling process began to leave BEC with larger and larger quantities of scrap materials that needed to be recycled. What was once a byproduct of the business had become one of the company’s largest revenue streams. Scrap metal sales reached 3,000 tons a month by 2012. In early 2016 BEC added two aluminum recycling furnaces to take the cast aluminum from the disassembly operations and turn it into 2,000 lb. aluminum sows to sell back to the automotive industry’s die casters. The company now produces over 500 tons a month of a near 380 quality aluminum sow that ends up being cast back into engines and transmissions for many of the world’s auto manufacturers. BEC’s partnerships with some of North Americas largest die casters assure that its vendors will continue to receive the most competitive prices for their reusable cores as well as their scrap. BEC continues to grow and diversify its offerings and has a number of projects in their infancy stages to continue to bring our suppliers and customers the products and services they have come to expect.

Why Recyclers should care about Collision Repair Industry Open Interfaces

T

here has been a lot of activity in the Collision Repair Industry regarding open interfaces to estimating systems. Mitchell committed to providing open interfaces. CCC introduced its Secure Share network seeking to improve security by controlling its interfaces. AudaExplore announced it will support the Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association's (CIECA) BMS interfaces.  BMS is CIECA's newest standard. When measured by dollar value, recycled parts represent the third largest part type used in the collision industry: OEM (66 percent), aftermarket (18 percent), recycled (10 percent). The estimating system is where the insurance company and the repairer interact in the process of repairing a vehicle. Openly competitive integrated parts marketplaces provide collision buyers choices regarding where they source and procure parts. Cycle time is very important because car owners are happier when their car is fixed quickly. Insurance companies spend a lot of money advertising for new customers and don't want to lose existing ones due to a slow repair. Barriers to the use of recycled parts have included delivery times, quality, availability and the fact that the collision industry is centered around component parts, whereas the recycling industry tends to be organized around part assemblies, which are more cost effective to dismantle and represent a better value than the individual components).  To increase the use of recycled parts, it should be easier to source, procure, and use recycled 92

parts than OEM or aftermarket. Our 2017 launch of Integrated Car Part Pro (iPro) is integrated into all three estimating systems to allow a one-click launch of the Car Part Pro marketplace. iPro Mitchell integration is a twoway bridge allowing the replacement of OEM and aftermarket parts with recycled parts directly from the iPro marketplace. iPro simplifies sourcing recycled parts by defaulting the part search to assemblies instead of components. This technology is powered by over 5 million component-to-assembly mappings performed by Car-Part in the last 5 years. iPro solves cycle time, availability and quality problems with its supply chain technology which provides real-time delivery information, including the parts recyclers sell from their supply chain. The result is a six-fold increase in the availability of recycled parts from Car-Part certified recyclers. This allows insurers and repairers to filter part choices using ARA A-Grade parts, Car-Part certified recyclers, and delivery times. Most iPro buyers use these filters, and 48 percent of the iPro parts added to estimates are

supply chain (or brokered) parts. iPro 2017 has been deployed to over 10,000 repairers, insurers, and independent appraisers. We analyzed iPro users part usage before and after using the iPro marketplace during Q4, 2017. Recycled parts utilization increased 72 percent (6.8 points), showing the impact of our assembly-optimized workflow, large part availability, and easy recycled part sourcing. The aftermarket parts increase shows the power of the iPro distribution network impact. Many auto recyclers are brokering aftermarket parts and have optimized their parts listings for iPro. The key to optimized iPro listings are real time delivery, part verification, Car-Part Recycler Certification, part images, Car-Part Pro Brokering, ARA part grading/damage codes, and accurate descriptions. If you are unsure of your iPro listings, please contact your support rep within iCPM or contact sales or support at 859-344-1925. Car-Part has donated technology to CIECA to upgrade the BMS interface standard allowing a more robust bi-directional estimating system interface that further simplifies adding recycled parts back into estimating systems. CIECA is the primary source of collision industry data communication standards. Their vision is for the collision industry to be e-commerce enabled, allowing all industry segments to communicate electronically, independent of platform or software used. Car-Part.com is the 2017 CIECA Electronic Commerce Company of the year and a member of the CIECA executive team.

Pollution Protection Incidents are bad for the environment and your wallet

I

sn’t it ironic how North American communities tend to ignore the daily environmental damage caused by our heavy consumer culture and product utilization, but are yet quick to point a finger at the recycling industry when a pollution incident occurs? The popular perception and depiction of Canada’s auto recycling industry may take time to change, but that does not mean you have to wait to minimize your exposure to risk. Pollution incidents are an everyday business risk for auto recyclers. While providing a service that benefits the environment through recycling discarded products, operators also take on a greater risk due to the concentration of pollutants they collect. The pollution risk may be well managed, but it is often not well insured. So, why should you purchase insurance for a pollution incident? Depending on the remediation required and the damage done, pollution incidents can be quite costly—and can continue to rise once lawyers get involved—sometimes reaching to over one million in damages. Insurance offers own site remediation, litigation defense costs and awards compensation to others for property damage or bodily injury. Cowan Insurance Group has been insuring recycling operations for more than 30 years. During that time, the industry has changed for the better through technological advancements, training and improved business practices, awareness of environmental risks and participation with government programs. In spite of all these improvements, pollution remains a common business risk and we encourage you to regularly review your risk management practices and—as a financial safety net for your company—to purchase a pollution policy that fits your desired level of protection. Cowan Insurance Group offers several recommendations for mediating risks. It suggests you determine your level of exposure to a pollution incidence, and discuss any concerns with your broker. Further, you may want to consider bring-

ing the insurer out to your property. It also suggests that you take the time to review your current risk management processes from extraction to containment, through to removal. Address shortfalls and make improvements on safety and efficiently while addressing your exposure. Recognizing the many reasons auto recycling facility may have for refraining from getting insured, Cowan Insurance Group details some commonly held myths regarding insurance. Myth #1: I’m only responsible when it is my fault. In reality, even if an incident is caused by vandalism, the pollutants are ultimately still on your property, and thus you will be responsible for the damage done to others.

Ryan Burns Commercial Account Executive Phone: 519-650-6363 ext. 41229 Toll Free: 1-866-912-6926 ryan.burns@cowangroup.ca

Myth #2: Pollution policies are expensive. Policies are no longer cost prohibitive and are certainly cheaper than litigation and the costs of remediation. Myth #3: All pollution policies are the same. Different types of environmental policies are available to cover a range of exposures, including sudden and accidental or preexisting conditions. Extensions, sub limits, clauses, and exclusions may also differ between insurers. Myth #4: It is a bad idea to let insurers to visit your facility. It is actually a great idea to have the insurer involved in a proactive risk inspection. Safety is everyone’s concern. The insurer’s risk services representative is not there to judge but can help identify concerns so they can be addressed before they become a problem.

A Journey ELV grows stronger

G

rowth is a goal most companies look for. At ELV Select, this growth came in a big way over the last twelve months. We owe this growth in a big way to the relationships we share with our customers. For this we have to say Thank you! In the past year we have expanded our operations from a small leased space to filling over 500 sq m of SEDA and ELV Select products. The increased size in our facility has enabled us to increase our inventory stock levels. This has in turn allowed for faster lead times and the ability to prevent down time for our customers. Additionally, we have added service vehicles for on-site repairs and installations, this is an integral part of our commitment to provide outstanding customer service. Through our regular maintenance program, we can ensure that our customer’s equipment is working the way it did when it was first installed. When you call ELV Select you can be sure that your call is taken seriously and that your needs will be addressed in a timely and professional manner. This is made possible with our friendly and knowledgeable staff; Frank our service manager and Jared our service and installation tech, Bob or Henk in sales or one of our part time staffers who fulfill orders, create marketing material and so much more. Through our ELV Select customer relations program, we help our customers through the various stages of every project. This means we ensure that the customer’s process meets all their local regulations and results in a net zero or cash positive position. We will find an end to end solution for efficient and environmental processing that is tailored to the customers needs. These processes include site planning, vehicle prep for drainage including battery removal, A/C evacuation and evacuation of all fluids under the hood of a vehicle. We also ensure the customer has heavy duty racks or lifts designed for North American vehicles and drainage equipment for removal of oil, gas and brake fluid as well as dismantling equipment for catalytic converters. Tire separators are also becoming more prevalent with the ability to process over 100 pre-sorted tires per hour. The storage of fluids in our certified utility tanks gives our customers piece of mind that their local regulations are being met. Following the sale and installation of equipment, we complete each sale with a thorough follow up as well as scheduled maintenance packages to ensure the equipment and training is up to date. There is much more that can be said, perhaps we will see you at an upcoming tradeshow where we would love to make your acquaintance. We sincerely look forward to growing again this year, both in Canada and abroad. To all our customers we ask, “Are you making money or losing money processing ELVs?” CAR

Balcon Enterprises’ Recycled Riches A Helluva packaging solution for any business

W

hen Balcon Enterprises Inc. continued to hear feedback from customers using their shipping supplies such as ‘that’s a Helluva box’ or ‘that’s a Helluva bag’, it struck a chord. So much so, in fact, that they decided to consult with a marketing company in Minneapolis and eventually register ‘Helluva’ for their packaging products. Helluva specializes in packaging solutions using high end shipping products such as Gaylord Boxes, FIBC Bulk Bags, liners, tape, film and pallets. They consider themselves consultants as much as vendors, working with clients to solve problems and developing long-term relationships with customers based on a commitment to high quality and no corner cutting. A big part of their ability to maintain high quality at low costs is their Gaylord Box refurbishing program. While purchasing used Gaylord Boxes is not new, Helluva takes the time to both inspect those boxes and repair them as opposed to just passing them on from one customer to the next without even looking at them-- a practice that can lead to some obvious, and nasty, consequences. The last thing anyone should have to worry about is whether their shipping products will fail. If a box Helluva acquires can’t be repaired they don’t use it, instead sending the leftovers to be made into more cardboard. The result is one ‘Helluva’ green innovation. Only 35 percent of most new boxes is recycled material, with the other 65 percent coming from new trees. With its refurbishment program, Helluva has committed itself to recycling and reusing boxes, leading the way in reducing the deforestation that cardboard use and production demands. Using calculations based on the EPA estimate that 17 trees are used to make one ton of cardboard stock, Helluva’s refurbishment program reduces demand for new cardboard stock by roughly 550,000 100

Canadian Auto Recyclers 2018

Kg a year, sparing more than 102,000 trees annually-- enough trees to cover an area the size of Dallas. Bulk bags are another of Helluva’s strengths. They have options for fully customizable bags so that customers can get exactly what they need. Helluva makes things even more convenient by keeping an in-stock bag program for common-sized and custom designed bags so that customers only have to order those that they need without clogging up their inventory. Ever reliable and ever expanding, they’re running one ‘Helluva’ company. CAR

We know that torically acclaimed, but most of the time we automobiles will need to be repaired, but we are spectacularly wrong. Thankfully, we don’t have to predict the future to be ready for it. To be ready for the future we need to live with a mindset of constant evaluation and action. When we embrace this mindset, we find things to act on which will make things right, better, or different. Instead of predicting what we don’t know, we must constantly evaluate what we do know and always be ready to act on new information. It’s with this mindset that I propose we talk about the technology and data the ever-changing automotive recycling industry needs to be ready for the future. To start the conversation, consider asking your technology partners what they do right, what they “To be ready for the future we need can do better, and what can they do differently to benefit you.

Now being used by some savvy recyclers to make sure we get it right, Powerlink 3.0 is the first step in Hollander’s long term strategy to provide new tools and data to recyclers so that we can help improve what, how and where you inventory and sell your parts. Powerlink 3.0 represents an evolution of Powerlink, functionally and technically. The first release introduces a new Inventory module. The new workflow and advanced features streamline the process of inventorying vehicles and parts, including a new proprietary “VIN to Part” decoder to automatically identify parts on a vehicle and an embedded image capture process that automatically associated images of vehicle sections with parts. Since the new module is browser based, it can be used on a workstation in the office or a tablet out in the yard. It’s all built on the same open Microsoft SQL database, so moving from Powerlink 2.8.6 to 3.0 will be a simple update. Powerlink 3.0 redefines what Hollander can do for your business.

HEAVY METAL Kobelco introduces the SK210D and SK140D MULTI-dismantlers and recyclers

T

o do the best job, you need the right tool. Since 1979, Kobelco has been working to make the best tool for the auto recycling industry and the new Kobelco SK210D and SK140D Multi-machine dismantlers are that tool. Traditionally auto recyclers were in the business of removing parts and selling those parts for a profit. When they had all the usable parts off the car, they flattened the car and sent it to a scrap yard and got paid for mixed materials based on the weight of the car. This scrap yard would then put the car into a shredder and pulverize the car into smaller pieces that could be sorted into different materials (primarily ferrous metal, aluminum and copper). These metals were sorted and sold at high profits. Some recyclers saw the profits the scrap yards were making by separating and sorting these valuable metals out of their cars and began to remove these metals themselves by hand before sending the car to the shredder. This created a new and profitable revenue stream for their business. They just needed a better and more efficient way to pull the copper and aluminum from the car. Kobelco began to work closely with JARA ( Japan Auto Recyclers Association) in the late 70’s to develop and refine a machine for their market that would provide a safe and cost effective way to capture these materials. Almost 40 years and several generations of machines later, Kobelco is pleased to bring the Kobelco SK210D and SK140D

Kobelco SK140D Multi Dismantling Machine.

“They just needed a better and more efficient way to pull the copper and aluminum from the car.”

Multi dismantler machines to the North American market. These are not “add-on” or “conversion packages” that take a standard excavator and add hold down tines and a nibbler/picker tool. These Kobelco machines are purpose built from the factory for one job: tearing things apart with power and precision. They have a heavier frame and counterweight and additional reinforcing in the boom and arm than a standard excavator does to stand up to the stresses and demands of dismantling and demolition work. The cab has safety glass with mesh screens and a cab interference device that prevents the tool from hitting the cab and protect the operator. Many other features such as boom and arm holding valves, cylinder guarding, reinforced belly guards and travel motor covers are included but the biggest thing is the hold down arms. Kobelco machines all come with hold down arms that raise and lower (like the competition) but also open and close side to side (unlike the competition) to grab the car low and from the sides so you have full access to the engine compartment and all the wiring harness to maximize your metal recapture rates. We have specialized tools for cleaning wire, holding engine blocks and separating engine heads and transmissions build into these movable arms to assist in your recycling process.There are a lot of factors to consider when looking to expand the scrap operation on your yard and weunderstand every yard is different.

Competition Control Canadian Converter Recycling innovation helps recyclers stay Competitive

T

he days of looking at catalytic converters as fun money are quickly coming to an end. There are many reasons for this new reality, but one of the biggest ris that auto/metal recyclers need to roll converter money back into the business to grow. If your business is looking for ways to make the most money with your converter cores, keep reading. Still selling your catalytic converters by the piece by serial number or grade? You are leaving money on the table. It doesn’t matter if you sell to reputable core-buying companies or even larger converter buyers, the fact is if you sell by the piece, eventually those converters must be sold by toll refining. How is it possible that you are getting more from a couple of guys in the white truck? PMR Catalytic Converter Recycling has been offering toll refining solutions to suppliers big and small for many years. No other company in North America is able to offer toll refined results on 100 converters in fewer than 10 business days. Making sure that money is going back into your business in the same market conditions that you are purchasing ELV’s and parts vehicles is a big bonus. Beyond the ability to project revenue streams coming from converters on a

month-to-month basis, PMR also gives you more reliable data to make informed business decisions. With PMR’s Supplier Services platform there are tools available that allow you to have an instant understanding of your converter inventory during day-to-day operations. Speaking of converter inventory, these cores are one of the most valuable. Having more in-

ternal controls with your converters lets everyone in the business know nothing will fall through the cracks. PMR’s photo grading systems allows recyclers to keep a picture record of each converter purchased or harvested and will offer you a real time value for the cores.

In the year that the national group has been in existence we have created and adopted membership standards of performance and began the process of branding. These initiatives when dealing with a group of independent businesses requires a balanced approach that allows the member business to maintain their independence while creating a shared vision and standards such that all are recognizable as QRP and our customers have the confidence and assurance that they will receive consistent service and quality from any of our members. As part of our strategy we have become sponsors and participants at all three Canadian Colli-

This coupled with the ability to share inventory amongst the members gives us a competitive advantage and ability to truly serve our customer with one stop shopping.

Tried and True Rebuilders Automotive Supply thrives on its sterling reputation

R

ebuilders Automotive Supply is the number one full-line core supplier to the largest remanufacturers and auto recyclers in the world. With more than 45 years in the automotive recycling industry, RAS is a quality and service-conscious company with over 40 product lines, 180,000 part numbers in inventory and over 3 million cores processed annually. RAS’ offerings include CoreConnect, Recalls, CorePro, RASBid, CorePro Mobile, Catalytic Converters and CATPRO. RAS tools uniquely streamline all aspects of the automotive core evaluation and inventory process while maximizing core revenue. RAS serves as an exclusive buyback partner for certain recalled airbag inflators. The population of VINs included in the buyback program is limited to those currently authorized for purchase by the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Honda hired RAS to coordinate its buyback and track down recalled salvage parts. Other airbag recalls RAS currently manages are GM, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru and Toyota. Rebuilders Automotive Supply is fast becoming ‘The Recall Specialist’. RAS works with multiple OEMs and hundreds of salvage yards to identify safety recalled products, such as ignition switches and airbags. RAS has played a key role by working with salvage yards, identifying recalled parts by VIN or year/make/model, and providing instructions on how to handle and ship hazmat material to remove these dangerous parts from public circulation. RAS will continue to assist the salvage industry until such time when recyclers will be made aware of recalls prior to purchase into the salvage network. RAS is very proud of their role as a corporate citizen in removing these very dangerous parts out of the salvage network which ultimately saves lives.

Additionally, RAS was recognized by General Motors as one of its best global suppliers during GM’s 23rd annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony. The Supplier of the Year and Overdrive award winners are chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives. Winning suppliers from around the world received the award for going above and beyond GM’s requirements, designed to provide customers with the most innovative technologies and the industry’s best quality vehicles. “These companies are the best-of-the-best suppliers, and deserving of special recognition for their outstanding contributions,” said Steve Kiefer, GM Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. RAS is one of 78 global suppliers to earn the prestigious Supplier of the Year 2014 award, among them: FedEx, Dell, Lear, BASF and Alpine to name a few. RAS demonstrated superior handling of a GM ignition switch recall. The task was to procure all GM ignition switches from salvage yards

to prevent resale of the parts in question. RAS has dedicated a team exclusively for recalls: the team is tasked with verifying the VIN, Year, Make, Model and ID of the part, receiving the parts in house, where, once received, undergo a second verification process. RAS then reimburses the salvage yard and securely stores the parts until they are returned to the OEM for destruction. To date, RAS has acquired over 150,000 airbags, one of many parts on the RAS Recalls radar. RAS launched CoreConnectSM in 2015 in partnership with Hollander. CoreConnectSM is a web-based application connecting the demand for parts from manufacturers and rebuilders identified by RAS with your inventory in Hollander’s EDEN® parts network. On average, automobile recyclers have thousands of dollars of core parts sitting in inventory, representing an immediate, significant revenue opportunity.

Recycling Equipment Canada Simple, economical solutions to meet new ELV regulations

T

he new end-of-life vehicle (ELV) processing regulations, now in force in Ontario and soon coming to other provinces, will have a significant impact on the automobile recycling sector. In response, Recycling Equipment Canada (REC) based in Waterloo, Ontario set out to find the safest, easiest-to-use and highest-quality solution available to enable its auto recycling customers to meet these new standards. REC focused its search in Europe, where similar regulations have been in place longer, and concluded that Iris-Mec equipment was the right choice. Since launching IrisMec in Canada of 2014, REC has sold many systems to used auto parts and scrap metal recycling customers.

“We reviewed all the leading manufacturers and chose Iris-Mec because of its proven track record, its simple, rugged design and ease of operation,” says Pete Mulvany, CEO of REC. “Iris-Mec is competitively priced compared to other systems, maximizing profit opportunities for our customers.” Key features and benefits of Iris-Mec equipment include pneumatic drainage systems that require only an air compressor to operate and hands-free drainage tools that are com-

pletely self-supporting. The drill also has a much larger sealing bellows to eliminate fuel spillage. As well, Iris-Mec offers an optional visual module for fuel drainage. This allows you to see the fuel while it is being extracted, so you can divert it to good or bad fuel tanks. “Our Iris-Mec ISQ systems are excellent value.

One of the par ticular ly noteworthy tools Salvage Supply and Technology offers is the PEAT SORB, a peat-based, lightweight organic absorbent. PEAT SORB was developed specifically for the automotive industry, and can absorb gasoline, diesel fuel, brake fluid, gear oil, transmissions fluid as well as motor oil. PEAT SORB is har vested from only the finest peat moss Atlantic Canada has to offer. The absorbent suppresses 90 percent of fumes a n d v a p o u r s w h e n s p re a d o v e r flammables like fuels, solvents as well as alcohols. Salvage Supply and Technology argues that a peat-based absorption product is superior to its clay-based counterparts for a number of reasons. The first of such benefits is in the speed. While conventional clay-based absorbents need to be rolled back and forth over a spill to get the job done, PEAT SORB absorbs five times its weight, and thus absorbs fluids substantially more quickly. Then, there’s health perks. Clay-

Stark’s Flexibility Streamlining and simplifying the insurance recovery and auto recycling industries

W

ith a beautiful website filled to the brim with high quality photos, Stark Auto Sales’ webpage is as engaging as the company it was built for. A family owned business based out of Toronto, Stark began as a scrap dealer before transitioning into auto parts. Since then, Stark has become a full service Insurance Recovery Centre, establishing key contracts with major insurance companies and a nationwide presence. As Insurance estimates for repairs continue to climb, more and more reparable cars end up being scrapped—its not that they can’t be fixed but rather that they are deemed too expensive and not worth it. Stark’s response has been to develop a comprehensive service for repairing and reselling the vehicles or recovering the parts for use among Auto Recyclers. Stark’s innovation and combination of both analytic and hardearned intuitive understanding of their various clients’ needs have allowed them to become industry leaders in solutions for pick-up and storage management. Their Insurance Recovery process is simple­—once an insurer has written off a vehicle, the insurer can use custom software to dispatch the vehicle for Stark to come pick up. Stark picks up the vehicle from the body shop themselves, fronting any towing and storage cost after attempting to lower such costs through negotiation. With their growing clientele list and relationships on the ground with the shops themselves, the promise of professional partnerships and expanded volume makes negotiating these deals much easier. Once the vehicle is settled with the insurer, Stark buys it from the insurance company, minus the previously mentioned fronted costs. After purchasing the vehicle they either fix it up or strip it for parts and scraps. The vehicles they restore are often sold by retail, but it is the weekly auctions that get them the most attention. Selling from their Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal locations these auctions offer over 200 salvaged cars (as well as trucks/SUV’s and motorcycles) every week. Auction calendars and listings are offered on their website complete with specs and high-quality photos, all you have to do is register online. Adding to the convenience is the number of search options available to give customers every opportunity to get as specific as they need to be in the hunt for just the right vehicle. An easy to understand system, easy to use website and reliable customer service, Stark is making everything simpler for insurers and car lovers all across Canada. CAR 114

Helping Successful Recyclers get more for their Converters By Becky Berube

I

n converter recycling, the best recyclers know their numbers and partner with companies that educate. Knowing key metrics about your converter loads safeguards you against misleading key metrics, like your average price per unit, and increases your bottom line. Every recycler looks at his or her average converter price. It’s an easy metric to track but an even easier number to get wrong if you didn’t get an accurate whole-body count before you shipped. You would be surprised how many recyclers consider the average sales price as gospel, but do not take the time to count their load before selling it. Relying on your processor to count for you could be costing you. The average unit price is just one of many key metrics when it comes to converter recycling. There are many more. Each key metric affects your profits and how you view and choose your processing company. Unfortunately, it is very easy to be misled in converter recycling. To avoid common pitfalls in converter recycling, we suggest the following actions. Know your count before you sell

Train a key person to count and inspect the converters before you package them up. Teach him or her the difference between the ceramic and metallic (foil/wire) converters. And if you are selling on assay recovery, send in the empties if they have just a little catalyst in them. A good processor will cut those and add that material. Also, if it’s genuinely empty, you and the processor will both agree that it is. Become an educated seller

Work with a company that believes in educating you about your loads. A good company will not hesitate to explain your invoice and how the numbers are derived. With selling on assay recovery, your results can be verified. That’s the beauty of the program. However, as with all science and commodity sales, we are taking something complex and simplifying it for ease. This lack of uniformity across companies that process and refine, makes you an easy target for skimming weight, actual value, and YOUR profits.

Becky Berube serves the recycling community as President of United Catalyst Corporation, Co-Chair of the Automotive Recycling Association’s Events Advisory Committee, and is an ExCom Board Member of the International Precious Metals Institute.

“A good company will not hesitate to explain your invoice and how the numbers are derived. With selling on assay recovery, your results can be verified. That’s the beauty of the program. ”

Audit your program

Become a data junkie. Learn all the key metrics to avoid misleading data, like your average converter price, and track true sales. You will be amazed as you gain data points, how easy it is to get misled. At United Catalyst Corporation, we educate recyclers every day. Stephen R. Covey once said, “If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.” We believe data doesn’t lie IF you know how it was derived and how to interpret it.

s NFL legend Vince Lombardi once said, “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” No one likes to lose. Whether you’re playing a sport, putting an offer on a house, running for an elected position or buying a lottery ticket, winning is what gets you the prize. When it comes to business, having a winning attitude can motivate employees, boost morale, make the workplace more enjoyable and even increase your sales. The auto recycling industry wins when recyclers help employees feel proud of the organization they work for, provide education for their staff and motivate them to deliver the best products and customer service possible. United Recyclers Group (URG) was founded to support employers in this—and more. URG creates opportunities for members by providing innovative solutions to support the needs of recyclers. Key to this is the annual URG training conference, which brings recyclers together to share ideas and innovative business processes, thereby promoting the success and growth of member companies.

or as long as I have been a part of the Canadian auto recycling industry, the professional community has been of one voice about the need for an effective licensing program. Tired of competing with backyard dismantlers and fly-by-night operations that spring up whenever the price of scrap jumps, members of the Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) have banded together to educate the provincial government on the benefits—and costs­—of introducing such a scheme for anyone buying or processing end-of-life vehicles (ELVs). In early 2016, that dream became reality. The Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) enacted regulations

Fatigués de rivaliser avec des démonteurs d’arrière-cour et des opérations de nuit qui surviennent chaque fois que le prix de la ferraille augmente, les membres de l’l’Automotive Recyclers Association de l’Ontario (OARA) se sont regroupés pour sensibiliser le gouvernement provincial aux avantages et aux coûts de l’introduction d’un tel régime pour quiconque achète ou traite des véhicules hors d’usage (VHU).

“Les vrais professionnels plaideront toujours pour des règles du jeu plus équitables et nous avons vraiment professionnelle.” under the Environmental Protection Act. Sure, the regulations are not perfect. They are somewhat administrative in nature­—each processor buying two or more ELVs per year, or in possession of ten or more onsite at one time, is required to register its operation as an ELV waste disposal site with the Environmental Activities Sector Registry (EASR). As of last year, however, an operating standards clause has also been brought in. Yes, the registration process is a bit cumbersome, but it has resulted in the creation a public record of all processors. That simple step put our industry on the path to determining who is in the sector­—and who is not. Sure, we all need to meet the formalized standards, but now companies that are not legitimately in the sector may not legally buy or sell ELVs to the scrap and shredding industries. As with any new regulation, industry will quibble with the finer details. In this case, some recyclers have certainly been wary, and, to

Au début de l’année 2016, ce rêve est devenu réalité. Le Ministère de l’Environnement et de l’Action en matière de changement climatique (MEACC) a adopté une réglementation en vertu de la Loi sur la protection de l’environnement. Bien sûr, la réglementation n’est pas parfaite. Elle est de nature administrative : chaque recycleur qui achète deux VHU pluss par an, ou qui est en possession de 10 ou plus sur place en même temps, est est requis d’inscrire ses opérations en tant que site d’élimination de VHU au Registre environnemental des activités et des secteurs (REAS). Cependant depuis l’année dernière, une clause sur les normes d’exploitation a également été introduite. Oui, le processus d’inscription est un peu lourd, mais il aabouti à la création d’un registre public de tous les recycleurs. Cette simple avancée met notre industrie sur la voie de déterminer qui est dans le secteur et qui ne l’est pas. Bien sûr, nous devons tous répondre aux normes, mais maintenant

les entreprises qui ne font pas partie du secteur ne peuvent plus légalement acheter ou vendre des VHU aux industries de la ferraille et du déchiquetage. Comme pour toute nouvelle réglementation, les professionnels ergoteront sur les plus petits détails. Et dans ce cas-ci, les professionnels se sont certainement méfiés et, dans une certaine mesure, ont mal interprété l’intention de certaines mesures. Toutefois, la plupart des mesures prises par le gouvernement ont été acceptées. En ce qui concerne les préoccupations persistantes de la communauté concernant la conformité et l’application de la loi, l’opinion est assez partagée. Nous avons vu de bonnes réglementations ne pas être appliquées et - pire encore - ne pas être pas appliquées uniformément dans d’autres industries. C’est quelque chose qui ne doit pas arriver ici.

some extent, have misinterpreted the intent of some of the rules. For the most part, however, the government’s move has been embraced. As far as the community’s lingering concerns about compliance and enforcement go, the sentiment is fairly consistent. We have seen good regulations not enforced and—worse­—not uniformly enforced in other industries. It is something that must not happen here. True professionals will always push for an even playing field, and the Canadian automotive community is truly professional. As it stands, the MOECC has only limited enforcement resources. It has numerous tools at its disposal, but it also has a huge environmental mandate beyond our sector. That is where OARA comes in, working with the MOECC compliance team to help raise awareness, identify businesses that need to be regulated and provide the necessary industry input to create intelligent, efficient policy interpretations. To augment the MOECC’s efforts, we have been helping to reach out to the entire supply chain, and we are not alone in working with the province. Major shredders and scrap buyers have come out in support of the regulations, with many publicly stating that they will only buy from EASR registrants. Municipalities, too, are beginning to use the province-wide list of auto recyclers to determine the status of their own local businesses. While it is only natural to feel a little uneasy about the prospect of regulations, it is important to remember both the reasoning behind their being put into place and the fact that the industry, broadly speaking, accepted them. Most of all, industry professionals must raise their voices to help ensure regulations are sensibly, fairly and rigorously enforced. CAR

À l’heure actuelle, le MEACC n’a que des ressources limitées pour la mise en œuvre de cette réglementation. Celui-ci dispose de nombreux outils mais au-delà de notre secteur, il doit aussi mettre en œuvre un énorme mandat environnemental. C’estlà qu’intervient l’OARA, en travaillant avec l’équipe de conformité du MOECC pour augmenter la sensibilisation, identifier les entreprises qui doivent être réglementéeset fournir l’apport nécessaire de l’industrie afin de créer des interprétations stratégiques intelligentes et efficaces. Pour accroître les efforts du MEACC, les associations provinciales de recyclage automobiles se tournent vers l’ensemble des acteurs du réseau d’approvisionnement. L’OARA n’est pas le seul organisme à travailler avec la province. Les principaux broyeurs se sont prononcés en faveur de la réglementation, presque tous en déclarant publiquement qu’ils achèteraient uniquement auprès des déclarants du REAS. Les municipalités commencent aussi à utiliser la liste provinciale des recycleurs d’automobiles pour déterminer le statut deleurs propres entreprises locales. Bien qu’il soit naturel de se sentir un peu mal à l’aise face à la perspective de la réglementation, il est important de se rappeler à la fois de la logique lors de sa création et du fait que l’industrie l’accepte. Mais avant tout, les professionnels de l’industrie doivent faire entendre leur voix pour faire en sorte que la réglementation soit appliquée de façon raisonnable, équitable et rigoureuse. CAR

ARA at 75: Lean, GREEN and Made to be Seen ARA logo rebrand celebrates new environmental direction The ARA’s new logo features a more environmental colour scheme. On Monday, January 8, The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) revealed its new green-and-blue logo to the world. “Our new logo better exhibits what Automotive Recyclers Association represents today,” said ARA President David Gold.“We’ve retained visual elements that reflect our history but we provide greater focus on our important role in environmental sustainability and the circular economy.” While, on the surface, a simple update of the organization’s historic vehicle and globe, the blue and green colour design is a celebra-

tion of the emphasis the organization places on sensible environmentalism. While the recycling of auto parts and reclamation of steel and aluminum from cars has long been known to reduce the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere, the actual statistics on carbon savings are difficult to ascertain. In a statement, the ARA explained the new logo would underscore the association’s “commitment to sustainability and focus on the reutilization of automotive parts and components.” The special redesign was timed to coincide with the group’s seventy-fifth birthday, which will fall in 2018.

Used vehicle prices may have returned to more normal levels months after the fierce hurricane season caused a spike as damaged vehicle owners desperately sought replacement parts, but they remain higher than at this time last year. Sitting at 132.0 at the end of 2017, wholesaler prices were 5.6 points higher than at the end of 2016, though also at the lowest levels seen since August, according to the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index, which is released by Atlanta-based Cox Automotive. “Most gains since August were a result of the replacement demand following the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma,” says Cox Automotive’s chief economist Jonathan Smoke. “Values are returning to pre-storm levels. Underlying vehicle depreciation rates have been accelerating to catch up to where prices would have been without the abnormal demand and scarce supply in both September and October.” “Expect pricing weakness for the next few months thanks to depreciation accelerating for most vehicles playing catch up with the abnormal pricing performance in September and October,” says Smoke.

Filling the Footprint New report reveals recycler’s huge impact on carbon footprint Members of the Automotive Recyclers of Massachusetts (ARM) worked with the state’s world renowned Metal Processing Institute at Worchester Polytechnic to provide some hard numbers, producing a study showing the industry’s carbon savings in Massachusetts. According to their report, Massachusetts auto recyclers have reduced the state’s carbon footprint by about two million tonnes per annum — an impressive amount given that Massachusetts estimates the state’s total emissions to be about 75 million tonnes per annum. “When I read about the study, I was so proud of our industry,” says ARA president Dave Gold, who immediately ended up calling the association’s executive team. “We need more people to see these numbers — the fact is, most people don’t think about our industry, but this could capture their attention. Produced under the direction of the institute’s top academic, Professor Brajendra Mishra, the study’s greatest challenge was in explaining the knock-on carbon savings of the industry — from iron and aluminum extraction to car part manufacturing.

A new study concludes that auto recyclers are responsible for reducing the carbon footprint of Massachussetts by more than two percent.

“What the automotive recyclers are doing is saving materials, saving energy and impacting the environment in a positive way, thus adding value to the economy of the state.” While the numbers found in the study cannot be easily extrapolated to find an equivalent amount of carbon saved by the industry in Canada, the methodology used by the study could be used as the framework for industries in any corner of the world.

ndustry icon Jack Cohen, better known as ‘Jasper’ Jack, died in September. Like many European-born Jewish people of his generation, Jack’s life saw him overcome the most terrible moment of history, surviving despite incredible odds. Born in Belgium in 1936, Jack and twin brother Leon were four when the Nazis overran their home. Fearing for their son’s lives, their father, mother and elder sister snuck the boys into an orphanage in order to protect them from Nazi antisemitism. While the boys were able to live under the noses of the occupying Germans for most of the war, their luck ran out in 1944. Loaded onto a train with more than a hundred other children, it was only the intervention of the Belgian Queen, who stopped the train and gave the boys the chance to slip the Nazi net. Brought to Toronto at the end of the war, the twins were adopted by Harry and Lillian Cohen, and later moved to Edmonton.

Malgré des embûches incroyables et comme beaucoup de juifs européens de sa génération, Jack a survécu à l’une des périodes les plus terribles de l’histoire. Nés en Belgique en 1936, Jack et son frère jumeau Leon étaient âgés de quatre ans lorsque les nazis ont effectué une rafle à leur domicile. Craignant pour la vie de leurs fils, leur père, leur mère et leur sœur aînée avaient caché les garçons dans un orphelinat afin de les protéger contre l’antisémitisme nazi. Bien que les garçons aient vécu sous le nez des occupants allemands la plus grande partie de la guerre, en 1944 leur chance avait tourné. Expédiés à bord d’un train avec plus d’une centaine d’enfants, les garçons ont eu la chance de s’échapper du filet nazi uniquement grâce à l’intervention de la reine belge qui a ordonné d’arrêter le train. À la fin de la guerre, les jumeaux sont amenés à Toronto, adoptés par Harry et Lillian Cohen, et déménagent plus tard à Edmonton.

In 1946, Harry started Jasper Auto Parts in downtown Edmonton just a block north of Jasper Ave. At the time he had nothing to peddle but a truckload of Model T rear-ends that he had hauled up from Winnipeg. This was the humble beginning that would lead to much greater things for the Cohens in later years. In 1978, Jack bought Windsor Truck Parts on the south side and continued to run Jasper Auto Parts from there. He owned and operated other businesses over the years, including RFC in Red Deer, Arcade Automatic Transmissions and Bargain Glass, still operating next door to the Jasper office. Over the course of his years in business, his list of colleagues and collaborators reads like a Who’s Who of the Alberta automotive parts business. He even brought in Mohammed Ali to help promote the sport of boxing in Alberta. People in the entertainment business, politicians, business moguls, and high society folk from every level of Edmonton’s social fabric­—Jack knew them and found the best in them. Jack went to work with his adoptive father almost immediately. Quitting school at an early age to do what he loved most: work with auto parts. When Harry died, Jack took over the business, which by that time had moved to the St. Albert Trail. In 1992 that property was sold to the Alberta government as part of their transportation corridor. I once asked Jack what “that one big thing was” that he’d learned in his 72 years in the business. I expected him to tell me about a recycling process or executing a long-term vision, or maybe some well guarded secret to do with buying low and selling high. To my surprise his answer was “it’s not about the cars. It’s about the people.” He told me that his biggest pride was being able to deal with people from all backgrounds; he truly was passionate about being able to connect and communicate with literally everyone. I’ve realized just how right Jack was. A person’s success, especially a business owner, is more dependent on getting along with people than on any other variable in the business. Jack’s obituary in the Edmonton Journal got it right. “There was and will only ever be one Jack Cohen, as unique and special as they come.” CAR

OBITUARY

En 1946, Harry fonde Jasper Auto Parts au centre-ville d’Edmonton, à un pâté de maisons au nord de l’avenue Jasper. À l’époque, il n’avait rien à vendre, sauf un camion chargé d’essieux arrière du modèle T qu’il avait transporté de Winnipeg. Ce début humble conduira les Cohen à des choses beaucoup plus grandes dans les années à venir. En 1978, Jack a acheté Windsor Truck Parts sur le côté sud et a poursuivi les activités de Jasper Auto Parts à partir de là. Il a été le propriétaire et exploité d’autres entreprises au fil des ans, entre autres RFC à Red Deer, Arcade Automatic Transmissions et Bargain Glass, toujours en opération tout juste à côté des bureaux de Jasper. Sa liste de collègues et de collaborateurs se lit comme un Qui Fait Quoi du secteur des pièces automobiles de l’Alberta tout au long de sa carrière en commerce. Il a même fait venir Mohammed Ali afin de promouvoir la boxe en Alberta. Jack connaissait des gens du secteur du divertissement, des politiciens, des magnats des affaires, des gens de la haute société, de tous les niveaux du tissu social d’Edmonton, et faisait ressortir ce qu’il y a de mieux en eux. Jack a travaillé avec son père adoptif presque immédiatement. Quittant l’école à un âge précoce pour faire ce qu’il aimait le plus : travailler avec des pièces automobiles. Quand Harry est mort, Jack a repris l’entreprise qui, à ce moment-là, était déménagée sur le St. Albert Trail. En 1992, cette propriété a été vendue au gouvernement de l’Alberta dans le cadre de la construction de leur corridor de transport. Une fois, j’ai demandé à Jack “la chose la plus importante” qu’il avait appris durant ses 72 ans en affaires. Je m’attendais à ce qu’il me parle d’un processus de recyclage ou de l’exécution d’une vision à long terme, ou peut-être d’un secret bien gardé au sujet des achats à petits prix et de la revente à fort prix. À ma grande surprise, sa réponse a été “ce n’est pas à propos des voitures. C’est à propos des gens.” Il m’a dit que sa plus grande fierté était de pouvoir traiter avec des gens de toutes les origines ethniques; il était vraiment passionné de pouvoir établir un contact et de parler avec littéralement tout le monde. J’ai réalisé à quel point Jack avait raison. Le succès d’une personne, en particulier dans le cas d’un propriétaire d’entreprise, dépend plus de sa capacité à bien s’entendre avec les gens que toute autre variable dans l’entreprise. L’Avis de décès de Jack dans le Edmonton Journal était réaliste. “Il y eu et il n’y aura jamais qu’un seul Jack Cohen, unique et spécial comme on les aime.” CAR
