Copart announces new Northamptonshire site

Copart UK has announced a new Operation Centre in Corby, Northamptonshire.

Plans for a new 33-acre site located at the Rockingham Racetrack will support the company’s growth in the central region of the UK, alongside their existing Operation Centres in Chester, Wolverhampton, and Wisbech.

The site in Corby will enable Copart to increase vehicle storage capacity in this region by 32%.

Continued expansion across the UK is part of Copart’s ambitious growth programme to meet continued demand from their customers, including most of the UK’s major insurance and automotive companies.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK and Ireland, said: “We’re very excited to announce our plans to develop a new Operation Centre in Corby, which will provide annual storage capacity for 38,000 vehicles.

“Situated in close proximity to Leicester, Northampton, and Peterborough, Corby is a perfect location to further strengthen our unrivalled operational capabilities in the central region of the UK.

“There will be more announcements to come for our customers as we continue to expand our landbank and our range of industry leading products and services.”

Subject to all relevant planning permissions, Copart anticipates the Operation Centre in Corby to be operational in autumn 2023.
