Sarah will work closely with insurers and bodyshops to adopt the best, most sustainable route for vehicle repairs.

SYNETIQ has announced Sarah Hirst as its new Green Parts Director – marking a new chapter in the business’ drive towards the sustainable future of vehicle repairs.

Sarah will manage the flow of recycled ‘green’ vehicle parts at SYNETIQ, the UK’s leading integrated salvage, dismantling and vehicle recycling company, managing the relationship between the business and its clients, including insurers, fleets, repair centres and garages.

Sarah will work closely with different markets to ensure green parts are always considered during the vehicle repair process, generating greater CO2 savings. Sarah brings 30 years’ experience in fleet and accident management sectors, having previously held senior roles at Copart and the RAC.

With a current stock of over 257,000 reusable vehicle parts, Sarah says SYNETIQ is perfectly positioned to support the insurance and vehicle repair network, helping to increase the sustainability credentials of SYNETIQ’s partners.

“I’m pleased to join SYNETIQ at a particularly exciting time,” says Sarah. “Having worked in vehicle repair and fleet management, I understand the crucial factors that allow green parts to be used effectively. For us, it’s about taking a partnership approach with garages, bodyshops and insurance repair partners, to ensure we can unlock the potential of sustainable vehicle repair together.”

SYNETIQ launched a plethora of sustainability initiatives in 2021, helping the business to secure Green Business of the Year at the prestigious Doncaster Business Awards in December. In Spring 2022, SYNETIQ plans to announce the next phase of ‘Our Road to Tomorrow’ – its mission to be the most trusted and sustainable business in its sector.
