Vortex designs and manufactures equipment for de-pollution end of life vehicles; the equipment has evolved from the earliest days of the UK ELV Directive, when we were asked by Sims Metals to manufacture a system to remove fuels from scrap cars, today that business has grown to cover a full range of specialist vehicle de-pollution tools and equipment and all associated products for vehicle salvage operators, it now includes garage equipment, tools, tanks and process equipment. We manufacture in Nottingham for the UK and European market and in Denver, Colorado for the North American market.

Our equipment is robust, easy to use and reliable. Our designs make the tools operator-friendly and reduce maintenance, thereby increasing productivity, as we make the products ourselves we can very easily change things to suit the customers circumstances.

Potential customers have a variety of issues that they face when deciding what they want from an ELV de-pollution station. It may be limited space, it could be related to the number of vehicles they want to process, or details down to potential spill containment, this is why Vortex has developed equipment for every possibility and it is what really differentiates us from our competitors. We are engineers first and foremost and what our customers like is the  bespoke engineering they get with our system, the well thought out designs that means our equipment just keeps on working efficiently day-in day-out in a very tough environment.

Vortex was the first company in the industry to create and deliver a full two or three day training course for the industry covering all aspects of ELV de-pollution procedures, products, health and safety and environmental compliance.
