Vehicle remarketer Manheim has renewed its partnership with the Hendy Group.

The deal will see 32,000 cars and LCVs pass through the auction company’s lanes over the next four years.

James Leese, the Manheim group sales director, said: “We are thrilled to have signed this new contract, which marks the renewal of a successful 17 year partnership.

“Together, we’ve developed a highly effective auction programme, with strong buyer interest for Hendy Group cars at our Manheim Bristol site, and commercial vehicles in Manheim Colchester.”

“This is an exciting time of growth for Hendy Group, and we look forward to providing them with the expertise and service they need to ensure their remarketing programme continues to go from strength to strength.”

“2019 is also shaping up to be a great year for Manheim as we focus on developing our vehicle services and logistics businesses so we can continue to meet the growing needs of our customers.”

The Hendy Group has dealerships across the South Coast of England, and represents major manufacturers including Ford, Kia, Mazda, Honda, MG, Iveco, Renault, SEAT, Dacia and Suzuki. It first signed an agreement with the Manheim in 2002, and the company itself was founded in 1859.

Mark Busby, commercial director at Hendy Group, said:  “This new contract signifies the strength of our on-going partnership with Manheim.

“Over our relationship we’ve consistently seen great value and service, and we welcome Manheim’s forward-thinking approach. We very much look forward to working together for a further four years.

Manheim is part of Cox Automotive, the world’s largest provider of automotive services to fleets, motor dealers, vehicle manufacturers and traders across cars, motorcycles, plant and commercial vehicles.

In January, the Sytner Car Supermarket Division extended its long-standing remarketing partnership with Manheim for a further two years, including the launch of a new sales programme in Leeds.
