Doncaster-based vehicle salvage and recycling company SYNETIQ has acquired a firm in Hertfordshire.
The South Yorkshire enterprise has bought Motorman, which is located in St Albans and is a re-manufactured parts supplier and repair partner to the fleet industry.
Motorman was set up over 50 years ago by Tony Zalkin and has established solid, long-standing links with blue chip clients. Zalkin and his wife Marion have been looking to take full retirement and sell their business and the acquisition will help build SYNETIQ’s offering to the UK’s fleet market.
All the Motorman employees have been retained and will continue to be led by Brian Cafferty, sales director. The business will quickly be integrated into SYNETIQ, with a spokesman for the Doncaster company adding that the priorities are now to ensure a smooth transition for clients, suppliers, and colleagues.
Tony Zalkin said: “I am proud of the business that Marion, myself and our dedicated team have built over the years, but the timing is right to enjoy our retirement.
“I know our legacy is in good hands with both Brian and the SYNETIQ business. I also know they will ensure the reputation we have built for quality and customer services will carry on after the handover. They will make sure our long-serving, loyal team are very well looked after.”
