FAIRFIELD, CA – Copart has expanded its presence in Virginia by opening a second facility near the Richmond area.

Copart operates three locations in the state, 133 in North America, and 145 throughout the world. The new facility is on a 44-acre site located in Sandstone, Va., just east of Richmond.

Officials said the new facility will serve the Richmond area and is designed to decrease cycle times and reduce storage and fuel costs for customers.

“This new location in Richmond will also allow for increased capacity at neighboring Copart locations,” said Willis Johnson, Copart’s chief executive officer and founder. “This is just one other way Copart continues to provide legendary service to its customers.”
