Lecavalier Auto Parts Receives the Automotive Recyclers Association's Certified Automotive Recycler Star Award

MANASSAS, VA, Nov. 24, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Lecavalier Auto Parts, in Québec, Canada was the deserving recipient of the Automotive Recyclers Association's (ARA) Certified Automotive Recycler Star Award, presented at the ARA 68th Annual Convention & Exposition in Charlotte, North Carolina last month. This prestigious industry award serves to honor automotive recycling facilities that operate at the highest levels of industry excellence. This includes exceeding in environmental compliance, safety, and maintaining best business practices.

Lecavalier Auto Parts, a full service automotive recycling facility specializing in late model green recycled auto parts, has been an ARA Certified Automotive Recycler (C.A.R.) for the past ten years. This program is one of the cornerstones of ARA as the facilities participating strive to put forward quality service and parts for the professional automotive recycling industry. Lecavalier emphasizes that participation in the program is part of their success story. "We want to be classified among the best and always strive to improve our facility and our business practices," says Mr. Roger Fugere Jr., President, who accepted the award on his company's behalf.

In 2011, Lecavalier was also awarded eBay Canada's 2011 Newcomer of the Year, an award from eBay that recognizes and rewards some of Canada's most successful small businesses. Brand new to the eBay platform, the 70-year-old Quebec-based automotive parts retailer, in less than a year and with the help of e-commerce salesperson Mathieu Gagne, now offers more than 50 percent of their inventory online (approximately 70,000 auto parts) and generates approximately $80,000 in sales per month from buyers in the U.S. and Canada.

When it comes to standards, C.A.R. members obviously go above and beyond. Lecavalier attributes its Star Award to their dedication to serve their customer's needs, with an excellent warranty program to back it up. "We have a VIP program with our customer base and we have a 'no surprise' policy. Lecavalier always delivers as promised," says Véronique Patry, Sales and Marketing Assistant. "We hire the best people and treat them as our best asset. It shows through directly to our customer service. We also reinvest company profit into technology project, inventory, marketing, etc," says Fugere.

Fugere and the Lecavalier team offer up this piece of advice to automotive recycling facilities looking to improve their business' profile. "All automotive recyclers should have a complete plan that addresses their goals and aspirations. From the plan, they must build a team to accomplish it. The most important part of the plan should be how to constantly grow with profitability, yet keeping it manageable - otherwise you will be a slave to the business. Also, hire great people and treat them like your best customer; then they will treat your customers well.
