Manheim Darlington (S.C.) will launch its Retail Solutions services, unveil a new facility, and announce local hiring plans to better support dealers' inventory needs this week, according to Manheim. These milestones will be celebrated during a series of anniversary events showcasing the Darlington location’s growth and commitment to be a strong business leader, community partner and area employer.
Manheim Darlington is the longest-running used vehicle auction in the world, and it is honoring its 73 years in operation and 25 years as a Manheim site. Evolving from Clanton’s Auto Auction, the business held its first one-lane sale in 1943, has been in its current location since 1948, and became a Manheim site in 1991.
Highlights of the anniversary festivities include: the grand opening of the new Retail Solutions facility, a hiring event for the facility, and the “Driving Dealer Success” 73rd Anniversary Sale. The sale offers clients the opportunity to participate in the wholesale auction, tour the new Retail Solutions facility and sign cards for members of the military in honor of Memorial Day.
“Investment and innovation have enabled Manheim Darlington to grow significantly since our early days,” said Danny Brawn, general manager, Manheim Darlington. “Service, value and relationships have kept dealer clients coming back for more than seven decades.”
