Vehicle Crash Repairs announces new sustainable site

Vehicle Crash Repairs is moving into a new 30,000-sqft site in Milton Keynes to accelerate its drive towards more sustainable operations.

The insurer-approved bodyshop business has invested heavily in new green technology and equipment as it moves closer towards becoming a carbon-neutral vehicle repair centre.

This includes fully-electric spray booths within the workshop, the use of energy-efficient technology and systems, automated LED lighting throughout the building, and recycling and waste management programmes.

It will also install solar panels within its first year of operation to further reduce energy consumption, and has committed to offsetting its remaining emissions through renewable energy projects.

Founder and managing director Rob Clark said: “As VCR evolves, going green has been at the forefront of all our business decisions and investments as we are aware of the carbon footprint repair centres create and are working hard to reduce the environmental impact when repairing vehicles. We believe that our industry should be leading the way in pushing for more businesses to become carbon neutral.

“From the beginning, VCR’s mission was to provide a high-quality repaired finish with a friendly and reliable service – the same principle has been at the core of VCR throughout its development over the years and is one of the main contributors to our ever-growing success. Over the years NBRA has helped and supported us with many contributing factors which have helped us with our growth, and we will continue to work closely with them now and in the future.”
