Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. Announces Opening of New Branch in Shreveport, LA ; Announces Relocation of Fargo, ND Branch to Brand New Facility

Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA) announced the opening of a new branch in Shreveport, LA and the relocation of its Fargo, ND branch to a brand new facility. IAA's new live and live-online auction facility in Shreveport is located at 4836 McGee Road in nearby Greenwood, LA. The size of the facility is 24 acres with additional expansion possibilities. The 9,800 square foot fully-functioning facility, which opened in December, gives IAA the additional capacity necessary to expand its footprint in the Northwest corner of Louisiana, which has experienced significant growth. In addition, IAA used 100% recycled products in the construction of the facility, including recycled content for the base material and recycled asphalt for the surface of the facility. The 7,500 square foot, 20 acre Fargo facility is located at 4401 37th St. N in Fargo, ND. This facility more than doubles IAA's capacity from its previous site shared with sister company, ADESA to allow for continued growth in the market. The new facility was constructed using recycled asphalt millings for the surfacing and features an indoor vehicle inspection area which maintains IAA's ability to provide excellent service to customers in seasonal weather.
