Schnitzer Steel's Auto Parts Business (APB) runs one of the nation's leading self-service used auto parts networks. Our 57 locations in 15 U.S. states and Western Canada are dedicated to supplying our customers with low-cost, quality used auto parts.
We purchase used and salvaged vehicles from tow companies, private parties, auto auctions, city contracts and charities. Generally, the parts are then removed and sold through our stores although some repairable vehicles are sold as is. The remaining portions of vehicles are crushed and sold to metal recyclers (including Metals Recycling Business facilities where geographically feasible) which process them into sellable recycled metal. The processed metal, in turn, is used by steel mills (including our Steel Manufacturing Business) and foundries around the world to produce finished steel and other metal products.
