ATLANTA – Manheim Auto Auction, in Manheim, Pa., will celebrate the official grand opening of its new reconditioning center April 19. The 200,000-sq.-ft. facility will house detail, paint and body, training, and mechanical shops all in one place.

“The convenience we can now offer in terms of one-stop shopping for any reconditioning need is vitally important to many of our customers. The ‘green’ aspects of the building also demonstrate Manheim’s focus on protecting the environment,” said Keith Williams, Manheim Auto Auction general manager.

The new $38 million reconditioning center is designed to handle the high volume of vehicles that pass through the location each month, offering customers recon services. The new facility includes:

  • Paint and body shop capable of handling 350 vehicles per day.

  • On-site Dent Wizard and Chip Wizard.

  • 14 detail lanes capable of handling 700 vehicles per day.

  • 19 vehicle service bays capable of handling 150 vehicles per day.

  • Photo imaging station.

  • Wireless technology to track vehicle progress throughout the recon cycle.

  • Inspection facility handling more than 500 vehicles per day.

    The facility features conservation efforts, including the installation of Manheim’s wastewater treatment system. The system reduces the facility’s water demand by 60 percent by producing 42,000 gallons of reusable water each day.

    In addition, the paint booths will utilize water-based paint to minimize air pollutants.
