To demonstrate the economic value that wholesale vehicle auctions provide to their local economy, Manheim hosted an auction visit and tour of Manheim Riverside for State Sen. Richard D. Roth (D-Riverside) and State Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside) on Tuesday, October 21. Manheim Riverside was established in 1988 and is part of Manheim, the leading provider of vehicle remarketing services.
Roth and Medina toured the wholesale facility, located at 6446 Fremont St., and met with Scott Hurst, market vice president for Manheim’s Southern California Market; Christopher Brown, general manager for Manheim Riverside, and Karyn Wrye, senior director of Manheim’s government affairs.
“I am proud to visit Manheim Riverside,” Sen. Roth said. “Helping our local economy grow is among my top priorities. This tour provides an opportunity to speak directly with business owners and their employees and learn what the Legislature can do to help assist economic growth. While Inland Southern California was hit hard by the global recession and experiences a slow recovery, I continue working with our legislators and Governor to remove obstacles and grow Inland Southern California’s economy.”
Earlier this year, U.S. Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) visited Manheim Riverside as the 100th business of his “100 Business” tour that began in 2013.
In November 2013, Manheim Riverside opened an 89,000 square-foot multi-use California Service Center that includes a Manheim employee service center, a Volkswagen Credit (VCI)/Audi Financial Services (AFS) Technical Operations Center and other office and meeting space.
Manheim is the leading global provider of vehicle remarketing services, connecting buyers and sellers of used vehicles to the largest wholesale used-vehicle marketplace.
