Copart to double capacity in Scotland


Copart UK will double its operational capabilities in Scotland to around 100,000 cars per year after securing planning permission for a new 31-acre site in East Kilbride.

The new site, which will be operational next year, will compliment its operation centre inWhitburn and recycling centre in Inverkeithing.

The expansion is part of the company’s ambitious growth programme to meet growing demand, which includes both new land acquisitions and the continued development and improvement of existing sites.

It follows last year’s launch of a major new customer service centre in Bedford, the quadrupling in size of its Bristol Operation Centre, and a new 68-acre UK ‘Super Centre’ in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Phil Briggs, Copart UK’s Director of Operation Centres, Transport & Engineering, said, “We’re passionate about continuously growing and improving our services to customers, so we’re very excited to secure final planning permission for our 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, doubling our operational capabilities in this part of the UK.”

Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, added, “We’re delighted to extend our investment programme into Scotland, further strengthening our unrivalled operational capabilities in this part of the UK in line with the continued growth of the UK car parc and the ever-changing needs of our customers.”
