Bodyline Auto Recycler owners Dave and Kathy McDonald know that their business would be entirely different if they didn’t have their team of dedicated staff. In fact, the McDonalds believe that, without their workforce’s dedication these last two years, they’d hardly have gotten anything done.
“We are continually impressed by our team members,” said Kathy. “The pressures and challenges of the past year have been hard on absolutely everyone, and our team came together time and time again to make it through this unscathed. That initiative has played a crucial role in keeping the operation running through the ups and downs of 2021.” While no business wants to experience slowdowns, pandemic restrictions and lower volumes of cars on the road forced many recyclers to take breaks they, quite frankly, aren’t used to taking.
“It presented a good time to fix flow and production,” said Dave. Last year also presented Bodyline’s Operations Manager Eric McDonald, who also happens to be Dave and Kathy’s son, with more responsibilities as he settled into his key role at the business he’s known since childhood. Overall, 2021 was a solid year for the business, say the McDonalds. “We have the industry to thank, as well,” they told Canadian Auto Recyclers. “The way the network of Canada’s auto recyclers came together to provide parts networking was truly incredible to see.”
In 2022, the main missions at Bodyline are to continue to foster the teamwork and company culture solidified by the business’s staff. “We’re also working to grow on our yard-to-yard sales,” said Dave.
