Celebrates Over 25 Years of Serving the Supply Needs of Auto Recyclers.


Over 25 Years ago Commercial Forms Recycler Supply was created from the need of Auto Recyclers as a source for Industry specific Forms and Supplies. Throughout the late 80’s Hollander and AutoInfo were succeeding in computerizing the industry and bringing changes to the forms and systems that Auto Recyclers previously used. The need kept arising for a centralized supply source for the industry specific Invoices, Tags and Supplies. The notion of Auto Recyclers individually dealing with their local forms company and industrial supply house no longer made sense. They didn’t understand the industry software or the unique supply needs. In 1988 Commercial Forms Recycler Supply was founded as the Auto Recycling Industries new Forms and Supply Company.

In 1984 Brian Collins was introduced to the Auto Recycling Industry as a new graduate from Northwood University in Midland Michigan. Having grown up working in his father’s NAPA parts stores the auto parts business was nothing new to him. This combined with his computer experience made him an ideal candidate for a software systems company named AutoInfo. Starting as a field installer and later moving into sales Brian worked with Howard Nusbaum, founder of AutoInfo, to bring automation into the Auto Recycling Industry. “When I started with AutoInfo they had 11 systems installed and Hollander had about the same” says Brian. With the computerization came changes in Invoicing formats and Parts Tagging Systems. Initially both Hollander and AutoInfo attempted to serve the forms and tag needs of their clients. Not being their focus, it was becoming an issue for the industry. In 1988, while selling and installing AutoInfo/Checkmate systems, Brian decided to start Commercial Forms Recycler Supply to specialize in the Forms and Supply needs of Auto Recyclers.

Immediately AutoInfo provided their endorsement and later Hollander would follow. Commercial Forms Recycler Supply still maintains a close relationship with the industries software providers. New system installations get a start-up kit of their forms, tags, paper and other supply line items. They also work together on special projects that may require modifications or the stocking of new products to support software or equipment enhancements. In the beginning the business was made up of mostly Forms, Tags and Computer related supplies. Working with their clients to solve their needs, they began to add more products to their offering.

Today Commercial Forms Recycler Supply serves the Automotive Recycling Industry and many other Automotive Related Industries with not only Forms and Tags, but consumable supply items such as caplugs, paint markers, heat tabs, saw blades, shipping and safety supplies. They also are able to customize forms, tags, labels and promotional items with their customer’s logos, warranties and preferred colors. Many of their stocked items were developed through the referral of customers. The idea for a transmission bracket to hold converters in was created by a LKQ customer in Ohio. Many of the warranty tags stocked were written with the assistance of customers. Y-Yard in Illinois helped write the Engine and Transmission Pre-Installation Tags used by Auto Recyclers all over North America now. By working closely with the industry their business continues to evolve with new product offerings. Recently they launched a new line of Reciprocating Saw Blades called the Dismantler Blade that was designed specifically for Auto Recyclers.They also assist customers with changes in technology, and the migration to it, such as Laser Invoices and Thermal Transfer Part Tags.
