LKQ Corporation engages in the distribution of vehicle products, including replacement parts, components and systems used in the repair and maintenance of vehicles, as well as specialty vehicle products and accessories. The company is also a provider of alternative vehicle replacement and maintenance products in the United Kingdom and the Benelux region of continental Europe. In addition to its wholesale operations, the company operates self service retail facilities across the U.S. that sells recycled automotive products from end-of-life-vehicles. Segments The company is organized into four segments: Wholesale - North America; Wholesale - Europe; Self Service; and Specialty. North America segment Wholesale Automotive Products The company’s wholesale automobile product operations in North America are organized by geographic regions serving the U.S. and Canada that sell all four product types (aftermarket, recycled, refurbished and remanufactured parts) to collision and mechanical automobile repair businesses. The company’s salvage operations have processing, sales, distribution and administrative operations on site, indoor and outdoor storage areas, and include a large warehouse with multiple bays to dismantle vehicles. The company’s engine remanufacturing operations are conducted primarily at its facility in Mexico, with sales, warehousing and distribution operations in the U.S. As of December 31, 2014, its North American wholesale operations conducted business from 347 facilities. Wholesale Aftermarket Products: The company’s sales in 2014 included approximately 101,000 SKUs of aftermarket automotive products, excluding refurbished products, for the most common models of domestic and foreign automobiles and light trucks, primarily for the repair of vehicles 3 to 12 years old. The company’s principal aftermarket product types consist of those most frequently damaged in collisions, including bumper covers, automotive body panels and lights. Platinum Plus is the company’s exclusive product line offered in the Keystone brand of aftermarket products. The company also developed a product line called ‘Value Line’ for self-pay, consumers. Certain of its products are certified by independent organizations such as the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) and NSF International (NSF). The company distributes paint and other materials used in repairing damaged vehicles, including sandpaper, abrasives, masking products and plastic filler. Wholesale Recycled Products The company’s recycled products include engines, transmissions, door assemblies, sheet metal products such as trunk lids, fenders and hoods, lights and bumper assemblies. Vehicle Processing: Vehicle processing for wholesale recycled operations involves dismantling a salvage vehicle into recycled products that are ready for sale. When a salvage vehicle arrives at one of its facilities, an inventory specialist identifies, catalogs, and schedules the vehicle for dismantling. Prior to dismantling, the company removes from each vehicle its battery, fluids, refrigerants, and parts containing hazardous substances or precious metals, such as catalytic converters. The extracted fluids are stored in bulk and subsequently sold to recyclers. Refurbished and Remanufactured Products: As of December 31, 2014, the company operated 28 refurbishing facilities and 4 engine remanufacturing facilities. The company refurbishes products, such as wheels, lights, plastic bumpers, and chrome bumpers. The majority of its refurbished and remanufactured products are processed from cores obtained from salvage vehicles purchased by its recycled operations at auctions, parts received in trade from customers purchasing replacement products from the company, and cores collected by its route delivery drivers from vehicles under repair by its customers. Heavy-Duty Truck Products: As of December 31, 2014, the company operated a total of 26 heavy-duty truck facilities in the U.S. and Canada. During 2014, the company purchased approximately 6,000 vehicles. The vehicles that are acquired for resale are typically special purpose or vocational use trucks such a
