Port Hope, ON, May 30, 2014 -- Standard Auto Wreckers, an International leader in Automotive
Recycling is expanding its operations by opening an auto parts distribution hub in the Municipality
of Port Hope. The company will be located at 260 Peter Street and will generate up to 40 new jobs.

Operations at Standard Auto Wreckers’ Port Hope facility will include indoor auto components
disassembly and warehousing and will serve as their Central Ontario distribution hub for new and
used auto parts.

Port Hope was selected as the home of Standard Auto Wreckers’ third Canadian facility due to its:

• Central location and easy access to the 401 highway
• Availability of land and a building large enough to accommodate indoor operations
• Substantial population of skilled labourers for hire
• Supportive Economic Development and Municipal Development Team co-operation.

The Municipality of Port Hope welcomes Standard Auto Wreckers to Port Hope’s business
community and the new jobs it will be creating in the coming months. Employment opportunities at
the facility will include auto dismantlers, shippers, sales, customer service, drivers and security.

Port Hope Mayor Linda Thompson stated, “We are very pleased that Standard Auto Wreckers, a
leader in automotive recycling, has selected Port Hope as a strategic location for expansion of their
operations. This substantial investment in our local economy demonstrates strong confidence in our
community and the new facility will have significant economic benefits through the creation of new
employment opportunities.”

David Gold, Owner of Standard Auto Wreckers stated, “We are extremely excited about opening
our new facility in Port Hope and look forward to contributing to the local community in many
ways - economically, environmentally and as good corporate stewards. Port Hope’s support and
warm welcome to the community is very much appreciated.”

Standard Auto Wreckers has been in business for over 35 years and proudly operates professionally
managed vehicle recycling facilities in Toronto and Ottawa, Ontario as well as in Niagara Falls,

purchasing insurance write-offs and other vehicles that have reached the end of their useful life.
Their process facilitates eco-friendly vehicle depollution, dismantling, and the sale of auto parts at
steep discounts to allow drivers to keep their cars on the road longer, thereby helping them to save
money and keep the planet green. For more information, visit: www.standardautowreckers.com.
