Firm announces plans to create £2.5 million-plus flagship site in Gloucester

With 95 employees across Gloucestershire, the largest UK owned salvage and vehicle recycling company SYNETIQ has announced its intention to expand its Gloucester site.

Since a successful merger in 2019 of Car Transplants, Motorhog, FAB Recycling and DH Systems, the business has seen strong growth nationwide and sees the project as a key milestone in its continued expansion.

An investment in excess of £2.5 million is already underway at the facility off Bristol Road. 

Plans will deliver new concrete works, large-scale racking systems, more purpose-built depollution facilities, and remodelled premium breaking and parts storage facilities.

SYNETIQ has said 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 Gloucester site.

The business added that its commitment to expansion in the South West follows shortly behind a similar strategy to expand its operations in Scotland with a new 11-acre site in Glasgow to provide national coverage for clients and customers.

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."
