LKQ is Newest NABC Sponsor

The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced that LKQ Corporation has become a diamond level member of NABC, the highest level of corporate sponsorship for the organization.

LKQ Corporation serves tens of thousands of collision repair businesses, mechanical service shops and vehicle dealerships throughout the United States and Canada, providing a variety of aftermarket, recycled and refurbished automotive repair-related products. LKQ’s mission statement states one of its goals as a company is to be a "good corporate citizen where we work and live," which ties into its support of NABC.

"In addition to improving the image of the industry and marketplace at large, NABC has a consistent record of working for the betterment of local communities as is the case with their Recycled Rides program, which LKQ has actively supported since it was initiated," says Herb Lieberman, industry liaison for LKQ. "We see on a day-to-day basis the value NABC and those supporting NABC bring tot he collision repair industry and the nation’s motorists."

NABC says it looks forward to establishing a long, mutually beneficial partnership with LKQ, which this year increased its participation in Recycled Rides and is set to take part next year in NABC’s new first responder emergency extrication program.

"We’re very happy that LKQ has decided to build on their participation in Recycled Rides and become even more involved with NABC," said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. "I know they will bring greater exposure to our efforts to improve the image of the collision industry and act as a catalyst to ensure that change continues to take place."
