AM Jones was previously a scrap metal yard, but Redcorn will continue in the normal Redcorn way of only dealing with end-of-life vehicles.

The new site will mean Redcorn can now collect further into the North-West, a step closer to the Director’s goal of obtaining nationwide coverage.

The initial step of opening a site in Derbyshire was a success, and, the company is sure that with this new site, Redcorn will soon become a household name across the country when people discuss scrap cars.

Redcorn believes that the expansion of its coverage can only benefit the industry as a whole, and the company’s trouble-free, speedy processes will benefit the public by getting them the right value for their vehicle.

Road links to and from the yard were a factor in the decision to proceed with the purchase, the Redcorn team have been seeking a suitable site for some time, and this was perfect.

Director Jamie Thompson said:

“We are hoping to get the site prepared and operating as soon as possible. We have a fleet of vehicles ready to put in place and staff ready to travel up to train the new workforce. Our business model is tried and tested, and I am confident that we will hit the ground running. I am looking forward to seeing our trucks collecting in the Liverpool, Preston, and Manchester area. We should be able to collect in North Wales and up to Leeds and above. It’s very exciting times.”
