Cox Automotive Canada to continue Osman Auction as ‘Manheim Edmonton’
Osman customers will receive the same great experience while benefitting from Manheim’s experience, resources and technologies.
Mississauga, Ont.—November 26, 2019—Cox Automotive Canada is excited to announce that, beginning with the public auction held this past weekend on November 23, Manheim Edmonton will expand its existing weekly dealer and commercial auction to public auctions and continue the Osman Auction legacy under the ‘Manheim Edmonton’ name.
As part of the Cox Automotive family, Osman customers will get the same local experience they are used to but will now benefit from Manheim’s 70-plus years of experience, a wide selection of vehicles and access to a full suite of mechanical, financing, fleet and retail ready services, including 24/7 digital listings through its recently launched MUVIT digital auction marketplace.
“As a family organization itself, the Cox Automotive Canada team is excited and committed to building upon the 37 years of proud traditions and community values that the Osman family has provided to Alberta residents, while adding many of the benefits that our size, advanced technology and experience can deliver,” said Jerome Dwight, Vice President, Inventory & Financial Solutions, Cox Automotive Canada. “With the most robust suite of services in the market, Cox Automotive is constantly evolving to deliver solutions that fit the very specific needs of our Canadian customers.”
Operations at both locations will remain ‘business-as-usual,’ with several Osman employees joining the Manheim team to ensure that a consistent user experience is maintained.
“After 37 years in my family, I’m very pleased that the Osman Auction will remain in good hands and can’t wait to see how much further it can grow as part of the Cox Automotive family,” said Sam Osman, CEO/President, Osman action. “We want to thank all our customers for the many years of support and I look forward to Manheim continuing the legacy.”
