Salvage dealer, Copart UK has announced the completion of a seven acre expansion at its York Operation Centre.
Having acquired and secured planning permission last year, the additional land in York is now ready for use, providing a total of 31 operational acres and storage for over 11,000 additional vehicles annually.
In addition to their Operation Centre, Copart’s York-based capabilities also include a ‘U-Pull-It’ (UPI) site, providing total capacity of 45 acres and a full cycle of services, from online auction sales through to recycled parts, to customers in the North.
This announcement follows recent updates about expansions at Copart’s Operation Centres in Bristol and Wisbech, as well as plans for a new 31-acre site in East Kilbride which will double the company’s operational capabilities in Scotland.
Phil Briggs, Copart UK’s Director of Operation Centres, Transport & Engineering, said:
“We’re delighted to announce the completion of a 7-acre expansion at this location, which will further strengthen our storage capacity for customers operating in the North.
“This expansion will provide annual storage capacity for around 50,000 vehicles at our York Operation Centre and will enable us to continue providing our industry leading services in this part of the UK.”
