Salvage and recycling company SYNETIQ has acquired a site in South East for its first 'Smart Hub'.
The facility will offer a range of client services, including online vehicle auctions, green parts supply, and recycling, processing a portion of the 50,000 salvage and end of life vehicles handled by the business each year.
Located close to the M25, the new 'Smart Hub' is expected improve the efficiency of the business' transporter and parts delivery fleet, reducing vehicle mileage and CO2 emissions.
It is about 30 miles away from SYNETIQ Charlton, an existing site which manages seized or damaged vehicles on behalf of the Metropolitan Police.
The increase in capacity will support SYNETIQ's growth strategy, as the business prepares for the future of vehicle recycling in the lead up to the 2030 ICE sales ban. Electric and hybrid vehicles will also be processed at the site, bolstering SYNETIQs existing EV Centre of Excellence in Winsford, Cheshire.
Tom Rumboll, chief executive at Doncaster-headquartered SYNETIQ, said: "We pride ourselves on being there for our clients, and adapting to their changing needs.
"This new, dynamic site is the first SYNETIQ Smart Hub, and our way of demonstrating to existing and potential clients that we're on hand with sustainable vehicle processing solutions across the breadth of the UK."
