Manheim invests in Leeds auction centre

Manheim has invested with a six-figure sum to improve its Leeds auction centre.

Manheim Auctions Leeds, which has been operating on the same 17-acre site in Rothwell since 1963, re-launched in March 2014.

Formerly split into two separate auction halls with a dividing wall, Manheim has redeveloped its Leeds centre to allow for the creation of two distinct lanes within one open plan environment.

Buyers can move between simultaneous auctions, while sound-proofing ensures the noise is contained within each lane.

Chris Cush, Manheim operations director, said: “Alongside investment in a ‘sound baffle’ and directional speakers, Manheim has introduced LED lighting to better showcase the vehicles going through each lane, as well as upgraded wi-fi connectivity and digital information screens.

“The new screens will allow vendors greater opportunity to brand their sales with high-quality digital promotions and animations.”

Manheim launched the improvements at the Leeds site with a circus themed event.
