Culminating twenty years of technology experience, a life long passion for automobiles and an environment awareness from the development of cutting edge products targeted at the “Green IT” market. Eric bought Adopt A Part (a long standing Auto recycling facility in N. Denver) in late 2008. Adopt A Part began focusing on Hybrid vehicles immediately.
Utilizing expertise from 20 years in high tech electronics (and calling in a few favors from some highly technical friends), Adopt A Part developed processes for testing and reconditioning hybrid car components.
Adopt A Part’s reconditioned, upgraded Prius batteries are well known and we ship them all over North America.
