Ford of Canada has revealed its 2016 Auction Quality Award winners, recognizing ADESA Montreal for the second straight year in the Group A category and honoring Manheim Montreal in the Group B category.

This marks Manheim’s first time winning the award since joining the Ford of Canada auction program in 2013.

The Auction Quality Award groups are based on size: Group A is for larger auctions with Group B consisting of smaller auctions hosting Ford-sponsored sales.

Auctions are evaluated on various physical and operational metrics throughout the year.

ADESA Montreal earned a score of 4.42 out of 5, while Manheim Montreal earned a score of 4.33 out of 5.

All of ADESA’s Canadian auctions and Manheim’s Toronto and Montreal auctions took part in the 2016 Auction Quality program. The program itself has been going on for more than 20 years.

“The services provided by both ADESA and Manheim instill confidence for our dealers that they are making the best selections of pre-owned vehicles for sale at their dealerships,” he said.
