Exclusive 40,000 unit deal renewed

Manheim renews deal with Listers

Manheim, a division of Cox Automotive, has renewed an exclusive 40,000-unit remarketing deal with Listers.

The partnership with Manheim, which is the result of a tender, will see high-quality stock from Listers continue to flow through the auction company's Birmingham centre over the next three years.

Manheim's Tim Hudson said: "The partnership with Listers is a great achievement for the business. We have demonstrated our ability to provide an unrivalled, world-class service to our partners, and we look forward to working closely once again with Listers over the years ahead."

Launched in 1979, Listers is now England's largest privately-owned motor group, and sells and buys vehicles from a number of manufacturers including Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Seat and Skoda.

Listers Group Used Car Manager, Andy O'Connell, said: "We are really pleased to have renewed our contract with Manheim to remarket our trade stock. We look forward to continuing with what we feel is a great working partnership and appreciate all the hard work and effort that we know will go in to making our Manheim sales a continued success."

Hudson added: "Listers has been selling through Manheim Birmingham since 2010, and their high-quality stock has always proved to be a major draw for Midlands-based buyers at our Monday and Wednesday sales. We are proud to work with them and excited to continue the tradition of offering great sales and service together."

Hudson concluded: "This fantastic news comes at the end of a very strong year for Manheim that has seen us renew contracts with a number of major clients. We also launched state-of-the-art facilities at Bruntingthorpe, which is now one of the most innovative and technologically advanced auction centres in the UK. We look forward to developing further innovations, both in-lane and online, in the year ahead."
