B38 Group puts in winning bid for Aston Barclay deal

B38 Group has secured a deal with vehicle remarketing business, Aston Barclay, to provide a full range of property support services at its new 70,000sq ft vehicle auction mega centre near Wakefield, Yorkshire.

Wakefield-based B38 Group was awarded the three-year contract to provide a total facilities management service covering both ‘hard’ technical building services as well as cleaning and other ‘soft’ services.

Opened in January 2019, the 18 acre Normanton site features two glass-fronted auction halls and has storage for 2,500 vehicles, as well as having leisure facilities, a restaurant and meeting rooms. It is believed to be the most modern and technologically advanced auction facility in Europe.

Steve Trott, who leads B38 Group’s soft services division, said: “Aston Barclay is pioneering an exciting approach, bridging the gap between a digital and physical auction environment. For that to work effectively, the company needs to be certain that its bricks and mortar centres are always well-presented and in full working order, despite the large numbers of customers and vehicles passing through. Open daily and with three auctions a week, there’s a huge number of people visiting and we’re enjoying the challenge of keeping Europe’s most modern vehicle auction centre looking and operating at its best.”

B38 Group offers a comprehensive facilities management operation for private sector clients and blue-chip organisations nationwide, working across the retail, manufacturing, logistics, corporate, education and healthcare sectors.
