KAR Auction Services announced on Tuesday afternoon that business unit ADESA expanded its presence in Pennsylvania with the acquisition of Pittsburgh Auto Auction in New Stanton, Pa.
This location joins two other ADESA auctions in the region, ADESA Pittsburgh and ADESA PA.
The company indicated Chris Angelicchio will continue as general manager of the auction.
“This acquisition demonstrates our continued commitment to grow our physical auction business and expand our geographic footprint,” ADESA president and chief executive officer Stéphane St-Hilaire said. “I look forward to working with the experienced staff at this location to continue the level of service they have provided for more than 35 years.”
KAR also mentioned Dave Angelicchio, former president of the National Auto Auction Association and CEO of Pittsburgh AA, will serve in a consultant capacity.
“It has been a great experience working with ADESA,” Dave Angelicchio said. “And I am confident that ADESA will maintain the personal level of dedication and involvement we have had for our employees and our customers for more than three decades.”
The 200-acre facility is located on the southwest side of Pittsburgh, near the intersection of Interstate 70 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. This established auction offers seven fully automated auction lanes and full-service reconditioning facilities, including a body shop and mechanical shop.
KAR went on to highlight this acquisition bolsters ADESA’s presence in the Eastern region and complements the company’s current buyer base. This facility has served customers in the area since 1978 and has conducted a weekly sale every Tuesday and a biweekly General Motors closed sale every other Thursday.
