Pull-A-Part Buys Texas Auto Recycling Yard

Pull-A-Part LLC has purchased the Corpus Christi, Texas, location of U-Pull-It Auto Parts Inc., a self-service auto recycling yard, for an undisclosed amount.

The Atlanta-based Pull-A-Part, a do-it-yourself used auto parts firm, said in a news release the facility has more than 1,400 used cars and trucks in stock, and employs about 13. U-Pull-It Auto Parts is owned by Lakeway, Texas-based Johnson Development.

“The addition of this location expands our presence in the Texas and southwest markets,” said Ross Kogon, president and CEO of Pull-A-Part. 

Corpus Christi becomes the third Pull-A-Part operation in Texas, following the company’s acquisition of the Mega U Pull location in El Paso in October and another U-Pull-It location in Brownsville earlier this year. The Corpus Christi operation is the fourth Pull-A-Part acquisition the company has made during the past 10 months, increasing the Pull-A-Part holdings to a total of 27 used auto parts superstores in 12 states.
