Happy Birthday, CAS!

Let’s travel back in time to 1997— Bill Clinton was president, Titanic was #1 at the box office, and a little company called Copart launched CAS, the Copart Auction System, on February 2, 1997.

February 3, 1997, was CAS’s first sale at our location in Sacramento, CA.

CAS had been under construction since May of 1995, and it took a lot of hard work and devotion over the next year and a half to make CAS the auction powerhouse that it is today.

Since its launch in 1997, CAS has processed over 300,000,000 images, navigated more than 200,000 auctions in the U.S. and U.K. alone, and it continues to be scalable for Copart and Copart’s family of brands. In 1997, Copart had just 45 locations, and the website had only 2 pages. CAS has kept up with Copart’s growth due to several Copart IT and Ops team members.

There is now a dedicated, hardworking team of 68 people who work in CAS, and they have more than 499 years of experience combined. It goes without saying that CAS, and our team members behind it 20 years ago and today, are worth celebrating. So, happy birthday, CAS. To many more!
