(Madoc, Ontario, December 9, 2006) Today, Hastings-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP Leona Dombrowsky, Municipality of Centre-Hastings Reeve Thomas Deline, and representatives from the Madoc and District Chamber of Commerce joined Land Rover Salvage owners Dominic and Scarlett Perodeau to cut the ribbon to officially open their new business.
Located in Madoc, north of Belleville and half way between Toronto and Ottawa, Land Rover Salvage is ideally located to serve customers throughout the province. With a current stock of nearly 6,000 new and refurbished parts for all Range Rover Classic's and Land Rover Discovery 1's, LRS also provides auto components to clients around the world through e-Bay listings and their website, www.landroversalvage.ca.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Perodeau observed, “Land Rover Salvage’s new building illustrates the power and effectiveness of the internet in towns as small as Madoc. By incorporating the internet into our day to day transactions, my wife and I can operate a business that is globally competitive while enjoying a high quality of life in the safe and friendly community of Madoc.”
Perodeau thanked MPP Dombrowsky for her support of the new enterprise, Amazing Coffee for keeping everyone caffeinated and the cooperation from the Municipal Chamber of Commerce. He also spoke to the importance of the Community Futures Development Corporation program that allows small business entrepreneurs like him to grow and succeed.
With a current stock of nearly $250,000 in used parts, the new facility allows LRS the ability to “provide the client with whatever they require at roughly a third the cost of what a LR dealer would charge, while ensuring all purchases are tested and refurbished to ensure seamless working condition,” remarked Perodeau.
The new indoor salvage yard is an outgrowth of the Classic Carriage auto restoration company which the Perodeau’s operated for several years on Queensborough Road in neighboring Tweed. They are a member of the largest Land Rover owners club in North America – The Ottawa Valley Land Rover Club as well as the Club des Land Rovers de Quebec.
In the past year, LRS has shipped Land Rover parts globally, including to places as far away as Costa Rica, Australia, Africa, Poland, Malta, Japan and most corners of North America.
