Raymond G. Butchko, as a
young man, worked in his fatherís garage in Smock, Pa. After his
fatherís death, he began working in the coal mines then changed jobs to
work for the B&O Railroad. During WW2, Ray served in the Navy as chief
of the motor pool. He was in several major battles in the South
Pacific. Upon his discharge from the Navy, Ray resumed work for the
railroad as a fireman. Seeing a brighter future for their families, in
1951, he and his brother Paul began what is now known as Butchko Bros.,
Inc. in a small garage behind their motherís home along a two lane Route
In 1959, we were the first in this area to purchase and utilize a
flat-bed tow truck for hauling vehicles. Ray was criticized by
fellow auto salvers on his purchase. They all said this truck was not
practical to the salvage industry, lo and behold, over 60 years later everyone has a
flat bed truck. Ray was a man who saw potential in new innovations for
the salvage industry and he tried many.
Butchko Bros., Inc. was
also one of the first auto recyclers in the area to become computerized.
All of our vehicles and parts are completely inventoried and tagged
using the computer interchange system. Our business consists of several
warehouses, four delivery trucks, two flatbed car haulers, and 14
employees. Today, Butchko Bros., Inc. is proud to be one of the
Tri-State area's leading businesses specializing in new and used auto
and truck parts.
Ray operated the
business from 1951 through 1999, the time of his death, when the
business was passed on to his daughter, Diana Omatick. Diana notes, ďDad
would be proud to see his business continue to grow into one of the
finest auto recycling businesses in the area. Customerís make our
business and over the years we have been blessed with several
generations of customers, who we like to call our friends."
