Manheim has signed a three-year partnership extension with Leasys UK, which will allow the two companies to continue working together on a national sales programme until at least 2021.

With more than 15 years of experience, Leasys is one of the main players in the contract hire industry for retail, SMEs and large corporate clients, serving Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Abarth, and Maserati customers. They have worked with Manheim, a division of Cox Automotive and a leading UK provider of integrated products and services for the vehicle remarketing sector, since 2008.

The contract extension means more than 10,000 high quality vehicles will continue to pass through the auction company's centres including Bruntingthorpe, Manchester and Bristol, and via Manheim Online.

Roberto Bellavia, Head of Leasys UK, says: "It is a pleasure to extend our contract with Manheim, and reinforce the partnership."

Martin Forbes, CEO of Cox Automotive UK, adds: "Our team have worked hard to deliver a strong performance over the past 10 years for Leasys and we are delighted that they are continuing their partnership with us.

"With our complete range of solutions, we are able to connect the right vendors with the right buyers in the right channels and help them to do business with greater confidence. We look forward to further developing our relationship with Leasys and help them achieve even greater success."
