«Pennsylvania is already one of our top states in number of Copart locations. With the expansion of one of our existing locations, we’re adding even more vehicle storage capacity in the Keystone State,» said Jay Adair, CEO of Copart. «Each expansion represents Copart’s dedication and hard work, and I couldn’t be more proud of the team behind the growth.»

The address for the Ebensburg location is 4007 Admiral Peary Highway. Its live online car auctions are every Thursday at 10 a.m. ET, and they are accessible through computers, tablets and other mobile devices. Bidding kiosks are also available at the location.

In addition to conducting online car auctions, Copart is a proud community partner. Last September, Copart’s Ebensburg location provided a safe training environment for two tactical training events held by four local fire departments and a tactical training company. The training events were designed to teach first responders how to safely and efficiently rescue people trapped inside their vehicles after car accidents. Photos from the events can be viewed at TeamCopart.com.

«This was one of the most exciting events I have ever witnessed,» said Anita Eckenrode, General Manager, after the first training event. «I would like to give a special thanks to my yard supervisor, Tom Shaffer, who staged the vehicles with assistance from loader operator Ron Shearer. These guys did an amazing job making sure this event was a great success.»

Local fire departments, law enforcement, and similar government agencies are encouraged to contact the general manager of any Copart location to learn about conducting training of their own at Copart.
