Westchester, Ill. — Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc., the leading  hybrid model salvage auto auction company and a wholly owned subsidiary of KAR Auction Services, Inc.

The convenient location is near Interstate 65 and marks the fourth IAA location in Kentucky.

“As part of Insurance Auto Auctions’ core business growth strategy, we continue to expand at a steady pace with investments in locations throughout North America by adding Louisville to  our more than 155 facilities,” said Tom O’Brien, chief executive officer at IAA. “Our disciplined approach to investing in facilities enables us to provide more strategic locations for our customers.
