CARS of WI Member Profile:
Remington Auto Salvage

Remington Auto Salvage, Inc., a family owned and operated business, has been in the automotive recycling industry for 38 years and sits on a scenic 30 acres of Midwestern farm land.

Remington Auto Salvage, Inc. is owned by Bob Remington with an additional 4 other family members working alongside Remington’s 12 employees.

What, at one time was a large supplier of antique salvaged vehicles, now dismantles 600 late model cars annually. We offer our customers a standard 6 month parts warranty as well as extended warranties.

We operate out of a newly renovated sales office with 4 additional warehouse buildings that house our dismantling shed, shipping headquarters, inventory, and parts storage.

In 2012, we broke ground to expand our vehicle storage by working alongside Gerke Excavating in hauling out over 175,000 yards of dirt for the Interstate 94 project. Gerke’s employees worked up to 23 hours a day to complete this time sensitive project for the county and in turn, provided Remington’s with two, 990 ft. by 220 ft. custom dirt pads adding storage for an additional 1,800 more cars. At one point, there was over 5 million dollars worth of heavy machinery on site. read more.


Remembering Bob Hoffmann

A well-known figure with Concerned Auto Recyclers of Wisconsin for many years, Bob Hoffmann died on October 11th 2014. He was the first non-yard owner to be President of the Association and he met that obligation with enthusiasm and determination. Bob was instrumental in the early development of many CARS of Wisconsin training programs, a number of which I understand are still in use. Bob started out in the automotive industry in parts and service in the Milwaukee area and eventually moved his family, wife Sandy and sons Mike and John, to Minocqua where he was the service manager at Sedlak Chevrolet for many years. read more.

From the Secretary’s Desk

I have just returned from the ARA Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, TN. This was my first national convention. I had a full and adventurous time. I went to a dinner show at the Wildhorse Saloon on Wednesday night. I have done a lot of line dancing over the years so being there, I was able to go on the dance floor and learn a new dance. It was also my birthday so the night was extra special. I also had my daughter-in-law with me. She came with me to meet up with her nephew that was being deployed to Afghanistan on Oct 27th. read more.
