Both came over from England with the ambition to make the American Dream. They started by searching through the Chicago Tribune seeing an ad in the paper for a junk yard for sale with a house. It gave them the start they needed, it was actually a house trailer with a 3-acre yard behind it in a rock quarry.
Since then, Speedway relocated to Joliet and has been in the business for over 50 years. It is no longer a junkyard but an automotive recycling facility and processes over 100 hundreds of vehicles annually. Today, Speedway sits on 15 acres with over 75,000 square foot of building space.
In 1991, Speedway added its 2nd generation when Paul’s son, Sean, joined the business. Paul and Sean (father and son) have teamed up to expand Speedway into several markets including the body shop, mechanical, & insurance business.
