Team PRP Adds Grassy Auto Parts to Network

Addition of Kentucky-based automotive recycler brings total number of members to 139.

Father and daughter owners Tim Keller and Kristin Allen.Grassy Auto Parts, located in West Liberty, Ky., is the newest automotive recycler to join the Team PRP nationwide recycler network. This addition increases the Team PRP membership to 139 locations across the country.

In addition to their primary location in West Liberty, Grassy owns two additional locations: Bluegrass Auto Parts  in Lexington, Ky., and Auto Parts Outlet in South Charleston, W. Va. Between 3,000 and 5,000 vehicles are kept at these locations, and close to 50 employees work with the company.

“Grassy Auto Parts has an excellent reputation in the Kentucky and West Virginia area as a high-quality, customer service-oriented auto parts recycler,” said Charlie Martin, Team PRP’s North American regional director. “Their business model aligns well with the vision and high standards of the Team PRP organization, as we continue to expand geographically. The addition of their three stores extends coverage for the Kentucky and West Virginia repair community.”

First opened in 1959 by John Keller, the company is now run and co-owned by John’s son, Tim Keller, and Tim’s daughter, Kristin Allen. Tim Keller developed a keen interest in the business at a very early age and began helping his father at the yard as a young boy.

“We feel that joining with Team PRP is an excellent opportunity to expand our business in a way that is more unified with other quality recyclers,” said Allen. “Being part of Team PRP holds all of us to a higher standard, and we are proud to be recognized with a distinguished group in our industry.”
