Copart continues Super Centre expansion

Copart has continued its progress toward net zero with further expansion of its Super Centre in Bristol.

Following the latest phase of development the site is now offering more services and additional capacity, while the team has been busy planting trees in the new bio-diversity spaces to improve air quality.

Improvements include vehicle preparation and valeting areas, where state-of-the-art technology is used to inspect and image vehicles, and specialist facilities for the handling of EVs and HEVs.

With further land development still ongoing, this site is set to become a 63-acre Copart Super Centre for the Southwest by the end of 2023.

Toff Ahmed, Copart’s regional manager, said: With additional land development set to continue, alongside many more exciting new facilities and features in the pipeline, Our Super Centre in Bristol will be the future prototype for our larger sites as we continue our investment programme in line with the growing and changing needs of both our buyers and sellers.”

Phil Briggs, director of operation centres, engineering and transport, added: This is just one of many exciting projects Copart has in motion to both acquire more land and further expand and improve infrastructure, technology, and operational capabilities at our existing Operation Centres across the UK.

“In addition to our recent acquisition of Hills Salvage & Recycling – The Green Parts Specialist, we will be further strengthening our unrivalled UK wide storage capacity by opening new sites in Bury St Edmunds and East Kilbride, and extending our existing sites including Peterlee, Sandy, and Wisbech. Once completed, we will have the ability to process around one million vehicles per annum.”
