GOOD DEAL FOR DALE
The board of directors for the Saskatchewan Automotive Recyclers Association (SARA) has welcomed Dale Nagel of Dale and Lisa’s Farm and Auto to its ranks. All it took was some 20 abandoned vehicles showing up on his property circa. 1998 for Nagel to put driving buses in the past and start full-time on restoring and recycling vehicles alongside his wife Lisa. “I started with SARA at its inception, and still participate actively out of a passion to build the business properly. The land this business sits on is my own and I am completely accountable for what happens to it,” said Nagel. Nagel says that his business has done nothing but grow since it was first incorporated in 1999, which then upsized to a larger facility in 2004. “I look forward to being part of this board. I hope to be able to help guide the industry changes that are coming … including the adoption of hybrid, electric and autonomous technology and how auto recyclers will meet the challenge,” said Nagel.
Henry will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a devoted husband and father and loving grandfather.
