ATLANTA — Total Resource Auctions recently expanded its network to 72 locations nationwide. The latest one to come on board is Total Resource Auctions New Jersey in Bordentown, N.J. 

This latest facility will share its location with Manheim New Jersey. Greg Fodor has been named manager of Total Resources Auctions New Jersey.

Officials indicated that the first sale will be Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. following Manheim New Jersey's used whole vehicle auction. They mentioned it will feature approximately 100 salvage and damaged units from American Honda, Wells Fargo, GE Capital and Enterprise.

Manheim executives expressed their enthusiasm about bringing Total Resource Auctions New Jersey into their system.

"The Total Resource Auctions New Jersey location greatly strengthens our presence in the Northeast and supports our continued goal of providing customers with added convenience and selection," explained Bill Tiedemann, vice president and general manager of Total Resource Auctions.

Echoing that sentiment was Pete Sauber, general manager of Manheim New Jersey.

"Becoming part of the Total Resource Auctions Network gives us the opportunity to expand our reach to develop a new customer base," Sauber noted.

"We expect Total Resource Auctions New Jersey to become a significant part of our operation as we build additional relationships with insurance, commercial and dealer customers in need of salvage and damaged vehicle remarketing services," he added.

"Salvage auction customers can expect the same high-quality services that have made Manheim New Jersey one of the leading wholesale vehicle auctions in the industry," Fodor noted.

"We have the expertise and dedicated staff to deliver those services and provide added value," he concluded.
