Mitchell International Inc. has joined the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA), Manassas, Va., as its most recent associate member. Mitchell International, based in San Diego, is a provider of software and services to the automotive claims and collision repair industries.

"We are delighted that Mitchell has become part of the ARA family," says Michael Wilson, ARA CEO. "This announcement formalizes the constructive working relationship that ARA and its members have had with Mitchell International over the years.”

Greg Horn, vice president of industry relations for Mitchell International, says, “Mitchell is committed to providing the industry with access to a broad network of salvage yards for both parts specification on an estimate and salvage assignment. Parts can be obtained from over 4,000 salvage yards and insurers can connect to more than 350 salvage yards for monitoring and managing salvage-related activities.”

Horn describes the ARA as “a dynamic organization that has historically provided valuable parts standards and certification programs to better quantify automotive parts and parts suppliers level of performance to consumers and auto repair professionals."

Since 1943, the ARA has represented an industry dedicated to the efficient removal and reuse of “green” automotive parts and the proper recycling of inoperable motor vehicles, the group says. ARA represents the interests of more than 4,500 auto recycling facilities in the United States and 14 other countries worldwide.
