LKQ Promise of Protection Expands to All Auto and Light Truck Parts
Chicago, IL, July 17, 2012 -- LKQ Corporation (NASDAQ: LKQ), the largest distributor of alternative automobile and truck parts in the United States, is excited to announce the expansion of its industry-leading Promise of Protection. Effective July 17, 2012, LKQ will indemnify licensed auto repair shops against injury or damage caused by any defective auto or light truck LKQ product, in accordance with the terms set forth in the Promise of Protection.
This expanded product liability protection supersedes LKQ’s previous Promise of Protection which recently raised the bar in the auto parts industry with the strongest quality assurance protection in the aftermarket automotive replacement parts category.
The LKQ Promise of Protection has transformed the way the auto parts industry defines customer care by stating definitively that LKQ products - aftermarket and recycled - are safe, high quality replacement parts. LKQ is the first and only company in the industry to back up product claims this strongly.
“We set a new industry standard with the introduction of our Promise of Protection program a few months ago. Now our expanded Promise of Protection goes to a completely new level by offering product liability indemnification on a much broader range of our parts, including OEM recycled,” said Rob Wagman, President and CEO of LKQ. “Without question, this expansion of our Promise of Protection program reinforces our commitment to leading the industry in quality assurance on these parts. We are committed to providing only safe, quality products that are cost effective, environmentally-conscious, and which now come with full protection for our customers.”
