Back in 1998, the world saw a fragmented recycled parts industry. Our founders, however, saw an opportunity — To provide quality, high-value alternatives for the automotive replacement parts marketplace.

Since then, LKQ has not stopped driving forward, with a commitment to continuous improvement, finding creative solutions, and adapting to the ever-changing competitive landscape.

A Vision for the Future

LKQ Corporation is the leading provider of alternative and specialty parts to repair and accessorize automobiles and other vehicles. LKQ has operations in North America, Europe and Taiwan. LKQ offers its customers a broad range of replacement systems, components, equipment and parts to repair and accessorize automobiles, trucks, and recreational and performance vehicles.

Our Mission is to be the leading global value-added distributor of vehicle parts and accessories by offering our customers the most comprehensive, available and cost effective selection of part solutions while building strong partnerships with our employees and the communities in which we operate.

Our Company History

LKQ was initially formed in 1998 through the combination of a number of wholesale recycled products businesses located in Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. We subsequently expanded globally through internal development and approximately 270 acquisitions of aftermarket, recycled, refurbished, and remanufactured product suppliers and manufacturers, self-service retail businesses, and specialty vehicle aftermarket equipment and accessories suppliers.
