Motorman Ltd rebrands to SYNETIQ
SYNETIQ signs up at Motorman Ltd


SYNETIQ is the UK’s largest vehicle salvage and recycling business, which acquired Motorman in October 2019. Since the acquisition, the two businesses have been busy integrating teams, harmonising processes and taking full advantage of the increased resources available through SYNETIQ.

SYNETIQ Mechanical Services can now access a huge stock of quality, certified OEM green parts, offering fleet clients improved cost-effective repair solutions, product availability and choice.

Joining SYNETIQ has also meant the expansion of the existing UK network of mechanical repair workshops. Group mechanical repair sites in Cheshire (Winsford) and Gloucester (Cinderford) are now being utilised with great success, increasing the already comprehensive UK coverage of workshops.

SYNETIQ is delighted to be equipped with the specialist knowledge and experience of the Motorman team. Coupled with increased capacity and coverage, the business is on hand to offer a more comprehensive service than ever before.


The company was created and launched on the 1st of March 2019.

As the largest UK owned salvage and vehicle recycling company, they create intelligent solutions for some of the countries’ leading Insurers, company fleets and police forces. SYNETIQ are trusted to process vehicles through auctions, green parts sales, and recycling processes.

The company was formed following the successful merger of Car Transplants, Motorhog, FAB Recycling and DH Systems. Headquartered in Doncaster SYNETIQ now has over 600 employees spread across sites nationwide.

Motorman Ltd was acquired in October 2019
