Salvage company expands Gloucester site


The biggest salvage and dismantling company in the UK is to expand its Gloucester site at Empire Way.

Doncaster-headquartered Synetiq has committed to a multi-million-pound investment which is already underway. It will deliver new concrete works, large-scale racking systems, more purpose-built depollution facilities, and remodelled premium breaking and parts storage facilities.

However, the changes will mean the closure of the long established Cinderford site by the end of September, with the migration of most of its employees, capabilities and processes transferring to the new flagship Synetiq site.

Synetiq works with some of the country’s leading insurers, fleets and police forces, including the Metropolitan Police, to process vehicles through auctions, green parts and recycling processes. The company was created in March 2019 following the merger of four well-established businesses and now operates around sixteen sites around the country, processing 100,000s of vehicles each year.

Jason Cross, Client Director of Synetiq said: “The investment in the expansion of our Gloucester site is exciting, driven by our aspiration to lead the industry whilst delivering an exceptional, compliant and innovative service to our clients. This move is testament to our confidence in our business and our people, who will have the chance to develop and grow within our ambitious and scalable organisation.”
