FAIRFIELD - Forbes magazine has again ranked Copart among the top 200 small companies in the country, marking the ninth consecutive year that the Fairfield-based company has earned such recognition.
Copart ranked 79th on Forbes' list, which was released Wednesday, after being No. 140 in 2007.
'Copart continues to stay on top because we continue to be change-centric in order to meet the demands of a changing world and improve our products and services,' company President Jay Adair stated in a press release.
