Following the opening of the company’s new sustainable and environmentally friendly office building in March, as part of Copart’s ongoing Plan-Net-Zero sustainability commitment, it has now completed the next stage of its ongoing expansion and improvement plans at this site.

The plan, which has been in development since 2019, forms part of Copart’s wider multi-faceted re-investment strategy to meet growing demand from its customers.

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. These new capabilities enable the company to keep growing its customer offering and operational capabilities to further service its customer needs.

The team have also been busy planting trees in the new bio-diversity spaces across the site, which have been designed to improve air quality and encourage nature and biodiversity.

Toff Ahmed, Copart’s Regional Manager for the Southwest, 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 & 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 1 million vehicles per annum.”
