Rochester Iron & Metal proudly announces the successful transition of its Logansport and Kokomo locations to Paul’s Auto Yard, effective January 1, 2024. This decision follows the acquisition of all 11 Paul’s Auto Yard locations by Rochester Iron & Metal in 2023, signifying a strategic move to enhance services and expand offerings to valued customers.
CEO of Rochester Iron & Metal, Jason Grube, expressed his enthusiasm for the transition, stating, “I am super excited to bring the Paul’s Auto Yard brand to our Logansport and Kokomo locations. With the addition of car and car part sales, we intend to offer even better service than customers have already come to expect.”
The transition brings valuable oversight to both locations from Paul’s Auto Yard CEOs Danielle Liss and Kim Casey. Liss and Casey, with a combined 55 years of experience in the metal recycling and used car parts industry, are well-positioned to ensure a seamless integration and continued excellence in customer service.
Danielle Liss, reflecting on her extensive experience at Paul’s Auto Yard, shared, “Over the course of two decades, I have taken on virtually every role imaginable on the operations and management side of the company. I am very proud of how far Paul’s Auto Yard has expanded and improved over those 20 years, but I am even more excited about the growth and improvements I see coming since joining the RIM family.”
Liss added, “I look forward to helping guide Paul’s Auto Yard into the future, and doing all I can to serve the employees of Paul’s Auto Yard, the communities in which we do business, and our valued customers.”
Kim Casey, Co-CEO of Paul’s Auto Yard, expressed her eagerness for the new challenge, stating, “Being in a predominantly male industry has made being the co-CEO of Paul’s one of my most rewarding achievements. I am excited about the transition and look forward to continuing to grow as a leader in this industry.”
Rochester Iron & Metal is confident that this transition will bring forth new opportunities, growth, and improved services to the communities served. The company remains dedicated to providing exceptional value and sustainable solutions in the metal recycling and used car parts industry.
