There is another exciting year ahead at ELV Select

2024 is well underway! We have so much to look forward to—but not without reflection on the past.

Of course, 2023 brought ups and downs; ELV Select was blessed with yet another successful year, the company told Canadian Auto Recyclers. ELV was able to bring on a new sales representative for its line of CMB attachments, which come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The attachments range from material handling equipment from shears to pulverisers. Some readers may remember meeting Greg at last year’s Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA)—since then, he has been hard at work travelling around the country to build relationships with recyclers from coast to coast.

In the ELV offices and shop space, a full-time inventory manager has been added to continue the facilitation of stock levels of parts and shipping of parts to all customers.

“It has always been our mission to deliver quality parts on time, and adding Curtis to our staff has been a key development for us,” ELV told Canadian Auto Recyclers.

ELV Select has also increased its service team to ensure it has the manpower to address and service, repair, rebuilds or installations that pop up during the year.

“We have so much to be thankful for as our company continues to grow to serve this fantastic industry. We are also thankful that we have all been spared from serious injury or illness.

“When we look back at 2023, it wasn’t always easy. Company co-owner Bob [Vanleeuwen] suffered a serious illness, which caused him to be away from work for a period—but we are thankful that he has been able to return to his day-to-day work in good health.”

Now, already well into 2024, ELV Select continues to look forward toward develop and change. The company plans for the arrival of another sales rep on the balers and shredders side of the business and is simultaneously keeping a close eye on the developments to the electric vehicle (EV) side of recycling. “As more EVs come off the roads, more recyclers are facing the reality that EVs are coming into their yards. Batteries need to be removed, stored and managed. This ‘new world’ comes with its challenges and learning.”

As such, ELV Select continues to involve itself in discussions with SEDA and with its customers to determine a strategy to move forward in this exciting, yet largely unknown world.

As the year forges on, ELV Select is asking its customers to stay connected and keep sharing ideas. “This is a close-knit community and we look forward to working with you all!”
