Manheim Orlando, one of the largest operating facilities of Manheim North America, was recently named Big Business of the Year by the Orlando Chamber of Commerce in recognition of the location’s local economic impact and the team’s dedication to community service.
The Orlando Chamber of Commerce presented the Manheim Orlando team with its Big Business of the Year award at the organization’s Big Orange Awards on Feb. 6.
“To be recognized for investing in our community and for doing what we enjoy as a team is quite an honor,” Manheim Orlando general manager Butch Herdegen said in a news release.
“We are always looking for opportunities to partner with people and organizations that make a difference for families who live and work in Orlando, and we’ll continue to serve others in 2017.”
Last year, Manheim Orlando supported Christmas in July, Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida, Orlando Science Center, Christian Service Center, the YMCA and the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.
The team was also recognized by the Orlando Chamber of Commerce for partnering with Ben’s Maintenance, Mike’s Security and Danny’s Outside Ops to host the Chamber’s Hob Nob and Straw Poll event.
About 350 full-time and part-time members make up the Manheim Orlando team.
According to Manheim, an estimated 3,300 independent, franchise and commercial dealers visit the 286-acre location weekly, and it facilitates more than $3 billion in wholesale automotive transactions annually.
