Team PRP Adds Brown’s Auto Salvage of Massachusetts to its Network Making 135 Locations Nationwide

Brown’s Auto Salvage, located in Winchendon, MA, is the latest automotive recycler to join the Team PRP network. The newest partner holds the special distinction of becoming the first Team PRP member in Massachusetts. The addition of Brown’s brings the burgeoning Team PRP membership total to 135 locations nationwide.

“Brown’s has established an excellent reputation in the New England area as a high-quality, environmentally-conscious auto parts recycler. It is certainly a pleasure to welcome them to Team PRP, particularly since it is evident that their business model is in keeping with our team vision and high standards,” noted Mike Kunkel, chairman of the Team PRP national board of directors.

Brown’s Auto Salvage in Bomoseen, VT—a 30-year-old business already a member of Team PRP—had opened a second location in 2011, when owner Mark Brown partnered with J.C. Cahill. The newer Massachusetts location co-owners, Brown and Cahill, had known one another for several years prior to their decision to partner in opening the first-rate facility that would serve the greater Boston area. Upon purchasing the facility two years ago, it was necessary for them to rebuild the business, refresh the inventory, and hire all new employees in an effort to replicate the Vermont location.

Brown experienced a dramatic change when that store became a Team PRP partner in 2012. With its almost immediate substantial increase in business, he was keenly aware of the need for the Massachusetts store to be properly prepared to handle the similar demand. “It’s exciting to finally have a Team PRP facility that can serve the huge market in Boston,” stated Ron Wilbert, Director of Membership for Team PRP’s northeast region. “I know John [J.C. Cahill] would have liked to have joined months ago, but he and Mark Brown made a smart decision to wait and adequately prepare, ensuring that they were totally equipped to assimilate into Team PRP.”
Cahill, GM at their MA location, has worked in the auto parts recycling business since his teens. Cahill is enthusiastic about partnering with Team PRP.
