We are excited to reveal that our new £10 million operations centre in St Helens is set to be completed late September, with a transition from our current Bolton operation completed early 2020.
The 20-acre development, based near St Helens, will provide workshop and refurbishment facilities, secure storage, vehicle inspection, a logistics management base as well as a state-of-the-art imaging studio to support our online auction operation.
Once open the facility, which can store in excess of 3,000 vehicles, will allow our auction company CD Auction Group to offer a processing point for its northern customers. Vehicles will be processed and imaged, sold online and then delivered out to the buyer from the new facility, saving on transport costs for clients.
Our managing director Martin McAuley said: "The opening of this site is another significant milestone in our ambition to be the leading supplier of comprehensive services to the UK fleet industry. Housing the latest efficiency-saving technologies and a full range of tailored support services, the new site in St Helens demonstrates our commitment to consistently innovate and deliver excellence for the benefit of our entire customer base.”
The new site, specifically identified for its transport links via main arterial road links including M6 to the North and South and M62 to the East and West, will provide us with a significant presence in the North West and replace our smaller operation centre in Bolton.
