ASM Thame Site Development

When we developed our Thame, Oxford site in 2007, we created this page to publish updates at each exciting step of its life.

The now fully up-and-running site enables us to achieve huge operational efficiencies by being able to co-ordinate all of our following activities on one ‘state-of-the-art’ site:

This new ‘one-stop-shop’ re-development represents a significant step forward for ASM’s auto recycling operation, and we are sure that ultimately – and most importantly – it is our customers who will reap the many benefits that have come about as a result of the new site’s synergies.
