Nationwide Expansion for PurpleRock

10th March 2023

We are delighted to confirm we have reached an agreement for the next exciting phase of growth for our PurpleRock logistics, defleet and secure vehicle storage business. 

Since we introduced the additional services element of the business to support City Auction Group we have grown hugely, now managing corporate clients in-life management solutions, vehicle refurbishment, market leading CarScanner 360 video/digital images, end-of-term nationwide logistics requirements and secure storage with over 3000 vehicles currently within our control. 

To replicate our successful move in Q3 2022 for the City Auction Group we are moving PurpleRock from the East of England Showground to a dedicated thirty-acre defleet, logistics and storage centre close to RAF Wittering on the main A1 a major north-south road which connects London to Edinburgh. 

The new PurpleRock facility is located centrally 5 miles from our remarketing centre at the historical ammunition site which is currently being refurbished to ensure we can operate our PurpleRock service solutions from Monday 3rd April 2023. The move will take place from Monday 20th to Friday 31st March therefore limited activity will take place at this time.

Michael Tomalin CEO commented ‘This is an exciting chapter in our overall growth plan as we introduce PurpleRock centres to operate alongside each and every sale centre across the group. The financial investment supported by organic growth by the board has seen Belfast recently open this service to replicate Wittering in the Northern Irish territory’.
