Core Supply Salvage Yard Parts Search Contact  

Chester Shrum moved to Nashville in 1968 and went to work for H.G. Hill's as a cashier, sacking groceries, and as a produce manager. He left H.G. Hill's and went to Sealtest Ice Cream , where he worked for 2 years. Chester then began working for Sunbeam Bakery in Nashville. He stayed for 10 years as a route salesman and later promoted to supervisor.

The core business started in the 80's. On Chester's day off, he would pick up scrap metal, aluminum cans, car parts, batteries, and old appliances where he could find them and take them to the local recycling plant. In time, he got a pickup truck and began doing this regularly in his spare time.

In 1986, Chester decided this could be done full time. He gave his notice at Sunbeam Bakery, and started what is now Shrum Parts and Core Supply, LLC. Later, Shrum Auto Salvage, LLC and, more recently, State Line Auto Parts, LLC were
added to the business.

All the Shrum family is active in the business
Chester and wife Terrie, children - John, Kaila, Allison, Annette, Lee, Lee's wife Miranda, and even some extended family and grandkid's.
