CARMEL, IN — ADESA Kansas City recently held a ribbon-cutting sale at its new auction facility in Belton, Mo. This brand-new, state-of-the-art facility replaced a 30-plus-year-old site in neighboring Lee’s Summit, Mo. ADESA executives and staff joined Belton Mayor Jimmy Odom for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to kick off this record-breaking sale.

“The sale was a phenomenal success,” said ADESA Kansas City General Manager Harold Chapman. “In fact, this sale had the largest bid badge number in the history of our auction. I was pleased by the attendance and want to thank all of the dealers who came out to share this memorable event with us.”

Dealers were not only treated to a record offering of vehicles at this sale, but the auction also provided complimentary breakfast and lunch to all in attendance. Various giveaways were held in the lanes throughout the day as well.

“This new facility is a prime example of ADESA’s combined knowledge and experience of building great facilities,” said Chapman. “It was exciting to officially introduce our new auction to our customers at this ribbon-cutting ceremony.”

Among other amenities, the new facility boasts: 10 auction lanes with digital video and audio feeds for online auction capability; state-of-the-art body shop with 200 unit-per-day capacity; mechanical shop with 15 bays; an AFC on-site floorplan financing office; full cafeteria; dealer lounge with Internet access, and increased dealer parking.
