Auction group Aston Barclay expands with fourth site

Auctions and remarketing group Aston Barclay has bought a site in Leeds which will become the fourth location in its network.

The multi-million pound investment by Aston Barclay Group will see the redevelopment of the former four and a half acre site previously occupied by Motor Auctions Leeds which was in administration.

The acquisition of the Hillidge Road site is south of Leeds and close to the M621 and is in addition to Aston Barclay's centres in Chelmsford, Essex, Westbury in Wiltshire and Prees Heath, Shropshire.

Initially, Aston Barclay will stage two sales a week, disposing of up to 300 cars and LCVs.

Tim Hudson, Aston Barclay’s managing director, said: “The acquisition of the Hillidge Road site in Leeds is strategically important to Aston Barclay Group as it completes our national footprint.

"We have commissioned an extensive refurbishment programme that will enable us to open for business in early April."
