“Diamond Sponsor” Hollander, a Solera Company, Brings Experience & Innovation to ARA Members
Manassas, VA – The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) shares a long history in
automotive recycling with ARA Exposition Diamond Sponsor Hollander, a Solera Company.
“For 67 years, ARA has assembled the best of the industry in one event that showcases the future
of automotive recycling,” says Michael E. Wilson, ARA CEO. “Diamond Sponsor Hollander has
also been working with auto recyclers for over 70 years and they continue to thrive and move the
industry forward. Therefore, we are very pleased that Hollander partners with us year after year
at our annual exposition to create a platform for automotive recyclers to learn and grow as
As the 67th Automotive Recyclers Association Annual Convention & Exposition, the premier
industry event held October 21-23 in Austin, Texas, came to a close, it had attracted over 1,000
industry professionals who gathered to inform themselves on industry best practices and discuss
relevant concerns to the industry, as well as see latest the technologies, innovations, products and
services presented by participants of the exposition.
“We are pleased to provide our support to the ARA in creating this forum for recyclers to come
together,” says Rich Lauria, Hollander’s Managing Director. “The ARA and Hollander are
advocates for the automotive recycling industry, and the convention provides an excellent
opportunity for recyclers to learn about technology and best practices that will help grow their
business. It’s a privilege to work with the ARA to promote an industry that does so much for the
environment, processing over 9 million end-of-life vehicles on an annual basis.”
Recyclers in the U.S and Canada have depended on Hollander for solutions to run their business
for over 70 years. In fact, more than half the industry including both large and small operations
use proven Hollander solutions to manage their businesses more efficiently and maximize
profits. “Not only do we provide tools for recyclers to run their operations,” says Lauria, “but
we are constantly looking for ways to channel demand for quality replacement parts to recyclers.
Our partnership with eBay Motors is one example of how we’re expanding access to the $5
billion+ consumer parts segment.”
