Sustainability journey

We have always been mindful and aware of the impact our industry has on the environment.

From many years we have been supporting the sustainability push.

1991 – One of the 1st bodyshops in the UK to remove the use of 2-pack Isocyanate paints and replacing it with a water-based system.

Throughout the years we have supported mixed material recycling and partner with
specialist companies that help with the recycling as much waste as possible.


  • Waste Metals – recycled.
  • Plastics (bumpers, plastic body panels, trims, etc) – recycled.
  • Paper, cardboard – recycled.
  • Electrical equipment – recycled (WEEE policy adhered to).
  • Waste paint materials – recycled or disposed of in a regulated and ethical manner.
