Vehicle salvage and recycling company Synetiq, has announced its intention to expand and invest in EV recycling facilities at its Winsford site.

EV being made safe by removing fuse link

A ‘significant investment’ is underway, and will see the vehicle dismantling site in Cheshire become what the company clams will be the ‘first of its kind’ in EV recycling in Europe.


In addition to the EV processing capability, there will also be further investment in facilities including concreting, large-scale racking systems, purpose-built de-pollution facilities, as well as remodelled premium dismantling and parts and EV battery storage facilities. Winsford will still operate as a salvage and online auction site.

The firm already has specialist equipment and processes in place to handle EVs and hybrids, while maximising safety and compliance. New recycling processes are also in development, alongside additional logistics capabilities to future proof the business.
