History of Walts
Awards


It all started in Xenia, Ohio in 1936 when Walter P. Wyen went into the used auto parts business. He owned and operated Xenia Auto Wrecking from 1936 to 1958. After closing the business in 1958, Walter took off a couple of years. After Dick and Gene finished school, Walter purchased 32 acres in Springfield, Ohio. It was here in May 1960 when Walt's Auto, Inc. was established.

Walt's was operated like most yards were in the early days with boom trucks and torch wagons. In 1977 we started to pull things together and get organized. We purchased a new large forklift and a new big MAC crusher. In the summer of 1979 Walter passed away. Walt's continued to grow and change with the times.

Our first big change was the implementation of an AIMS inventory system. The inventory that we once stored in our heads was now stored on cards and tags.


In 1985 we built a 20,000 square-foot steel building. Within this building you will find our showroom, sales area, offices, dismantling area, stockroom and storage locations for parts. In 1986 a Hollander computer system was installed. All our inventory is stored in this computer system and can be accessed in a matter of seconds. We have a 4-car carrier, a 2-car carrier, 4 delivery trucks, 2 large forklifts and a crusher. Today we employ 26 people, 8 of which are family. We belong to ARA, our national association, OATRA and the Better Business Bureau. Walt's Auto is a certified auto recycler with the Gold Seal of approval from ARA.

And the rest is history.
