In yet another strand of their ongoing growth programme, global leader in online vehicle remarketing, Copart UK, are set to double their operational capabilities in Scotland with the announcement of a new Operation Centre near Glasgow.

Plans for a new 31-acre site in East Kilbride will support the company’s growth in Scotland, in addition to Copart’s existing Operation Centre in Whitburn, and sister company UPI based in Inverkeithing.

Expansion in Scotland is part of Copart’s ambitious growth programme to meet continued demand from their customers, including most of the UK’s major insurance companies.

Situated near Glasgow, the new site in East Kilbride, alongside Copart’s Whitburn site which serves the Edinburgh area, will provide strategic operational coverage for both of Scotland’s major cities.

Phil Briggs, Copart UK’s Director of Operation Centres, Transport & Engineering, said:

“We’re very excited to announce our plans to develop a new Operation Centre in East Kilbride, which will provide annual storage capacity for over 49,000 vehicles. Alongside our existing 30-acre site in Whitburn, it offers the potential for Copart to handle around 100,000 cars per year across Scotland.

“Situated in close proximity to Glasgow, East Kilbride is a perfect location to further support growth and enable us to provide our industry leading products and services in Scotland.”

East Kilbride is a strategic location with good transport links, providing Copart with further storage capacity and scale to offer their fast and efficient surge management services, in response to the extreme weather-related events which can typically affect Scotland.

This announcement follows recent updates from the company about plans to develop a further 23 acres at their Bristol Operation Centre to create a 63-acre ‘Super Centre’ for the South West of England, and an expansion of their Wisbech Operation Centre in Cambridgeshire.

Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said:

“We’re delighted to announce yet 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.

“As a market leader with relentless passion to keep growing and improving our services to customers, we’re very excited to extend our investment programme into Scotland, further strengthening our unrivalled operational capabilities in this part of the UK.”

Subject to all relevant planning permissions, Copart anticipates the Operation Centre in East Kilbride to be available for use by the end of 2021, and fully operational in 2022.

This follows the company’s recent announcement of their plans to develop a further 23 acres at their Bristol Operation Centre, making this location set to become a 63-acre ‘Super Centre’ for the South West.

Plans for a 5-acre expansion of their Wisbech Operation Centre in Cambridgeshire is yet 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 5 acres will increase overall vehicle storage capacity by around 35%.

Phil Briggs, Copart UK’s Director of Operation Centres, Transport & Engineering, said:

“Our plans to develop a further 5 acres at this location will further strengthen our storage capacity for customers operating in the east of England.

“Annually, this expansion will provide storage for just under 7,000 additional vehicles at our Wisbech Operation Centre and will enable us to continue providing our industry leading services.”

Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said:

“We’re delighted to start the new year on a positive note, with this investment into the extension and improvement of our Wisbech Operation Centre. We are starting 2021 as we mean to go on, as a market leader with a passion and determination to keep on growing and improving our services to customers.

“Our ambitious growth programme is set to go from strength to strength this year, as we continue our investment into land, technology and unrivalled operational capabilities.”

Global leader in online vehicle remarketing, Copart UK, have announced major expansion plans for their Bristol Operation Centre as part of their ongoing growth programme that has seen over £30m re-invested in land and transport this year alone.

The expansion at Bristol is a clear demonstration of Copart’s multi-faceted re-investment strategy, combining a programme of land acquisition with continuous investment in transport, service, and technology.

Originally a 16-acre site, Copart celebrated the addition of a further 24 acres in 2019 and are now accelerating plans to develop a further 23 acres, making this location set to become a 63-acre ‘Super Centre’ for the South West.

In addition to the planned expansion of this site, Copart are also investing in improvements to the infrastructure. This will include brand new vehicle preparation areas that will enable vehicle inspections, valeting and 360-degree imaging bays to ensure the condition of the vehicle is as transparent as possible when they hit their unique online auctions.

The additional space will add even more capacity for Copart's customers’ vehicles with secure storage and enlarged areas for vehicles that require specialist handling like EV’s and flood and fire damaged vehicles, alongside HGV’s and Agricultural. This additional capacity offers unique contingency land in the event of catastrophes where Copart's insurance customers need surge management services.

Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said:

“Our passion and determination to keep growing and improving our services to customers remains paramount. We’re incredibly proud to lead the market as we continue to develop our customer offering, technology, and operational capabilities, alongside our land bank.

“Not only will the additional storage capacity increase, the expansion also includes a conference facility where we can host our customers on-site.”

Phil Briggs, Copart UK’s Director of Operation Centres, Transport & Engineering, said:

“These are exciting times for Copart’s customers as we continue our investment programme in line with their needs. Our ongoing investment into land, alongside the extension and improvement of our existing

Operation Centres, will further strengthen our unrivalled UK wide storage capacity and create job opportunities in the areas where we operate.”
