David J. Joseph Co. acquires businesses
On March 1, 2006, The David J.
Joseph Company (DJJ), Cincinnati, has purchased the assets and
business of Recycling Center of Palm Beach County and Palm Beach
Recycling, previously owned and operated by Phil and John Everett.
Recycling Center has been operating as a self-serve used auto
parts store since 1972.
DJJ will operate the West Palm
self serve used auto parts store under its U-Pull-&-Pay (UPAP)
subsidiary, but plans to continue to use the Recycling Center
name during a transition period.
The West Palm site spans 17 acres,
and will hold 1,300 automobiles on stands for the retail public
to remove needed body panels, drive train components, or other
auto accessories for purchase. Bill Peterson is the West Palm
UPAP Store Manager. Peterson brings experience from U-Wrench-It
and Pick ‘n Pull to the UPAP West Palm store.
U-Pull-&-Pay currently has
greenfield sites under development in Cincinnati and Orlando.
The Cincinnati store is a 20-acre site which will hold 1,300 cars
on stands. Dave Eisenacher is the Cincinnati UPAP Store Manager.
Eisenacher has been with the DJJ family of companies for nearly
16 years, serving most recently as commercial director for River
Metals Recycling in Newport, Kentucky. The Cincinnati UPAP store
is projected to open by year-end 2006.
The Orlando store is a 32 acre
site which will hold 2,000 cars on stands. The projected opening
of the Orlando UPAP retail store is summer, 2006.
