Bryant Industries will always take a proactive stance in establishing ourselves as a community partner in the cities and towns where we work and live.

We have built a company around a dedication to these principles that stands out in the industry. 

Check out our testimonials page or talk to any of our customers and you will come away with an idea of what makes people and companies choose Bryant Industries.

Bryant Industries has come a long way since selling parts off of a few junk cars in the late 50’s. We officially opened for business at our Westville location in 1961, selling parts out of a barn. 

The parts business was good to us over the years, growing steadily into the 80’s. In 1987, we dipped our first toe into the recycling business, adding a non-ferrous recycling operation to our Westville location and opening a small recycling operation at 1406 Warrington Avenue in Danville. 

 

These were an instant success, and set us on the path to where we are today.
As vehicles became more and more complex and harder to work on, Bryant’s Auto Parts & Recycling (as we were known then) moved further and further into the recycling side of the business. 

 In 2006, we put in our first iron scales and bought our first crane, which was an immediate success, giving us lines of customers out into Warrington Avenue. It was becoming apparent that the face of Bryant’s Auto Parts & Recycling was changing, and we felt that with that change in business should come a change in names. 

 In January of 2007, we became Bryant Industries and officially started a new era in our history. Since that time, our auto parts business has remained strong, as it has transitioned into one of the most successful U-Pull operations in the area.

We’ve come a long way since the days of selling parts out of a barn, but we have not forgotten where we came from. Although progress and the need for space eventually resulted in us tearing down the old barn in 2010, we have kept several pictures of it around to constantly remind us of where we started. 

Although the face and the name of the business has changed through the years, the community and customer friendly approach that was our hallmark in 1961 is still our hallmark today.

Going Green Isn't Our Slogan; It's Our Way Of Life

Bryant Industries considers conservation of the environment to be one of its most important responsibilities. Many of us are avid outdoorsmen, hunters, and fishermen. 

We take the responsibility of leaving this planet to our children and grandchildren better than we received it very seriously. Through a third party assessor, we have periodic environmental assessments done of our facilities to ensure that we are taking the proper precautions when it comes to protecting our environment.

Bryant Industries also supports many organizations, including the National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited and Keep Vermilion County Beautiful. 

We support fundraising efforts for many area reserves and parks, including Kennekuk County Park, Forest Glen Preserve and Harry ‘Babe’ Woodyard State Natural Area. We consider it a privilege to be able to help preserve these important parks and areas.

A Letter from the CEO

Hi, I’m Mike Bryant.

A good portion of what you are going to see on this website discusses words like service, integrity and friendly. I’ve made it my mission to see to it that these words aren’t just words thrown around to get your attention, but words that form the foundation on which this company was built.

When my parents started this company over 50 years ago, they found out quick that you had to know your customers and treat them as partners and friends. We carry that tradition like a badge of honor, and we can’t envision any other way of doing business.

The staff at Bryant Industries is the best in the business. We strive to make sure that everyone has the training and knowledge needed to implement this level of service for our customers.

People ask me what the best investment this company has ever made is…your first crane, a certain building? The answer is and has always been the same. It’s the investment we make each and every day in our relationships with the people who are responsible for our unique brand of success, our customers.

We continually strive to make this company better by finding new and different ways to serve you. It’s worked for over 60 years, and we suspect it will continue to work in the future.


Thank you for making this all possible.

Sincerely,
Mike Bryant
