Manheim opens a new branch, expanding into Thailand’s northern market and serving AEC customers
Manheim, the world’s leading vehicle auction and remarketing company, is opening a new branch in Chiang Mai, as it expands into Thailand’s northern market, and looking to serve the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), as it looks to grow its business and further serve its customers throughout Thailand.
The new branch will be fully open on June 6th. The facility will offer two auction lanes for cars and motorcycle.
With an emphasis on comprehensive service, sellers can leave their cars or motorcycles with Manheim’s Chiang Mai branch for auction. It also offers a delivery option for after-sales service. In addition, buyers nationwide can join the Chiang Mai branch’s auctions online. The Manheim Chiang Mai auction is the only multi auction lane facility in Chiang Mai aiding efficiency and minimizing customers time away from their respective businesses.
“Our new Chiang Mai branch offers a full service for our customers in the North, as we also look to reach out to AEC corridor customers,” said Simon Moran, Vice President, Manheim Asia Pacific.
Manheim has operated its vehicle auction and auto remarketing business in Thailand for more than ten years. The Chiang Mai branch is Manheim’s sixth branch in Thailand after Bangkok, Phitsanulok, Surat Thani, Nakhon Ratchasima and Chonburi.
As Thailand’s second-hand market continues to grow, Manheim will look to open more branches in the country this year.
“There are more to follow our Chiang Mai branch,” said Moran.
Manheim has been in business since 1945, and handles more than 8 million vehicles a year worldwide, with a value of more than $50 billion.
