“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Y-Yard to our membership,” said Kent Rothwell, owner of Weaver Parts and chair of Team PRP’s national board. “Y-Yard’s exceptional growth is evidence of its long-held commitment to the highest standards of quality, integrity and customer service within our industry. This level of excellence makes them an ideal fit with our Team PRP vision, and we’re truly pleased to have them join with us.”

Y-Yard Auto & Truck Inc., is a family-owned and locally operated business with a 40-year history. Since its opening in 1970, Y-Yard has continually expanded and modernized, making it one of the most state-of-the-art automotive recycling facilities in the nation. Its inventory occupies more than 45 acres of Y-Yard’s 60-acre business. It deals in both domestic and import parts, as well as cars, trucks, vans and SUVs.


The business and property was originally acquired in 1956 by a rebuilder of wrecked cars, Robert Siefken. Siefken then sold the business – complete with 900 older model cars, a house trailer, a body shop and 100-year-old barn – to its present owner, Mike Nolan, in July of 1970. In 2007, Nolan stepped down as president of Y-Yard, at which time two of his four daughters, Kelly Roepke and Erin Swingler, stepped in as president and vice president of the company.

"We can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to belong to a group of quality recyclers who operate their businesses with high expectations and standards,” said Kelly Roepke. “Knowing that, together as a team, we follow the same operational guidelines and procedures, is just one of the countless benefits of the group. It will be a wonderful expansion to our inventory options and availability, because at the push of a button, we’ll have access to millions of recycled parts, new parts and aftermarket parts, too.”
