We at Wilbert’s Inc. have been recognized as the recycling industry’s Green Certified environmental market leader of 2020-2021 by the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA). We were presented with the prestigious “Certified Automotive Recycler (CAR) award earlier this month. The professional automotive recycling industry has placed great emphasis on environmental and safety standards over the last couple of decades which Wilbert’s businesses have eagerly embraced. Through the industry’s creation of standards, recyclers can become certified as gold seal members making them known as quality market leaders. This achievement has been accomplished by some however, few have received international recognition in earning the “CAR” award. The Wilbert family business has been involved with the CAR program since its inception and our eagerness to be progressive has lasted throughout generations.
There is no better recognition of many years of hard work than that which is acknowledged by one’s peers. Receiving the CAR award is a solid indication the Wilbert’s are true market leaders. Rick Wilbert humbly accepted the award for our family stating, “It’s an honor to receive the CAR award and I know my father and brother Pete would be flattered. Thank you very much for the award, it is much appreciated.”
The award was given by the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) and presented to the Wilbert’s by the chairman of the certification committee- Shannon Nordstrom of Nordstrom’s Auto of South Dakota. Shannon began his remote presentation with acknowledgment of our family’s dedication to our progressiveness with “as far as the records go back the Wilbert’s have been involved with CAR. They are truly a family affair.” Joined in person by Automotive Recyclers Association President, Scott Robertson, the unsuspected visit was a much-appreciated diversion from Wilbert’s weekly board meeting. It is surely a moment we will forever remember.
