Aston Barclay is in the process of appointing contractors to extend its Prees Heath auction operation by 6.5 acres to extend its capacity after securing a new remarketing deal with Santander Consumer Finance.
Group 1 Automotive has appointed Aston Barclay as the remarketing partner for its Beadles Advantage Cars, Mercedes and Smart dealers across the South East and East Anglia.
Darren Guiver, Group 1’s UK managing director said: “Used cars are an important part of our retailing strategy in the UK and we value the partnership we have built up with Aston Barclay. The Aston Barclay team is very responsive in meeting the changing needs of our used car operation and the extra site investment will help accommodate our continued growth. Chelmsford has a strong buyer base and our stock has been very well received.”
