Global leader in online vehicle remarketing, Copart UK, today announces expansion plans for its Wisbech Operation Centre as part of the company’s ongoing growth programme to meet rising demand from its insurer customers.
This follows a series of similar announcements from Copart last year, including expansion of its Bristol site to create a 63-acre “super centre”, the creation of a major new customer service centre in Bedford, and the significant growth of its vehicle fleet.
Plans for a five-acre expansion of the Cambridgeshire centre is another strand of Copart’s extensive reinvestment strategy, which combines a programme of land acquisition with continuous improvement at existing sites and reinvestment in transport, services, and technology. Currently a 16-acre site, plans to develop a further five acres will increase overall vehicle storage capacity by around 35%, providing space for just under 7,000 additional vehicles.
Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said: “We are starting 2021 as we mean to go on, growing and improving our services to our insurance customers as we continue our investment into land, technology and unrivalled operational capabilities.”
Subject to all relevant planning permissions, Copart anticipates the additional 5 acres at Wisbech to be operational by spring 2021.
