NEW SITE FOR MOOSE JAW SGI SALVAGE OPERATIONS BUILDING
SGI President Larry Fogg today announced SGI is building a new Moose
Jaw SGI Salvage operations facility.
"Moose Jaw's auto salvage and parts operation has outgrown its current
facilities on Ominica Street West," Fogg said. "In the last few
years, insufficient yard space at the site has become a problem. At
the same time, SGI's parts inventory has grown substantially. A
larger building and more yard space will ensure the SGI Salvage
operation in Moose Jaw will better meet the needs of customers and
The new 14,600 square foot building be located on the 300 block of the
North Service Road and will provide sales, salvage and claims
compounds, along with paved customer and staff parking.
The new building will sit on four acres of land, compared to the
current 1.5 acres. The substantial increase in yard space will better
accommodate the large volume of vehicles now processed in Moose Jaw.
In its first full year of operation in 1972, the Moose Jaw branch
processed 246 vehicles. It now averages 1,600 per year.
"The current site is so overcrowded with vehicles, many are
double and triple parked," Fogg said. "The new site will provide
nearly triple the yard space creating sufficient room to house
all the vehicles the Moose Jaw branch now processes.
"The new site will make SGI Salvage bigger and better in Moose
Jaw. The increase in space will cut down on the time it takes
Salvage employees to locate and move vehicles and a larger garage
will allow for more vehicles to be processed at a time
enhancing customer service."
Construction on the new facility is expected to get underway in
late June with a projected completion date by the end of October.
