Edmonton, Alberta — October 5, 2016 — Impact Auto Auctions welcomed more than 250 auto industry professionals and local dignitaries to the grand opening of its new Edmonton auto salvage auction facility. Located at 26419 Twp. Road 525A in Acheson, Alberta, the facility is the largest of its kind in Canada. It features 47 acres of vehicle storage, and a 12,500 sq. ft. office, auction and inspection building.
“Today we continue our expansion in northern Alberta with the official opening of our largest facility to date,” said Terry Daniels, Impact’s Managing Director. “We are extremely excited about delivering an enhanced service experience to our customers in this market, and look forward to continuing our support of the Greater Edmonton business community and our local community partners for many years to come.”
Impact Edmonton features a large buyer reception and service area, a series of dedicated appraisal offices, and Impact’s dual auction lane configuration. According to Impact, the set-up saves buyers time by enabling them to safely view multiple auction vehicles at once. The new site also increases the company’s vehicle capacity in the market by 50 percent, enabling Impact to consolidate its Greater Edmonton operations into a single facility.
“On behalf of Parkland County Council, we are pleased to welcome Impact Auto Auctions to Acheson,” said Mayor Rod Shaigec. “Acheson is a growing industrial hub just west of Edmonton and home to a variety of growing businesses. We’re looking forward to building a great relationship with Impact and working together to enhance the local economy.”
As part of the grand opening celebrations, Impact donated $10,000 to the local Canadian Red Cross which continues to support families and individuals recovering from the Fort McMurray wildfires. Over the summer, Impact employees also worked with local authorities to remove more than 1,000 vehicles in the region, an essential first step in beginning the cleanup and rebuilding effort in the community.
