Gibbs Technology Automotive Overview

Developers of amphibious vehicle technology, Gibbs Technologies appointed John Pye & Sons to manage a disposal of surplus Land Rover engines & automotive parts at their West Midlands factory.

Gibbs are pioneers in their field and their Aquada car was named as one of the ‘Best Innovations’ in 2003 by ‘Time’ magazine. Virgin boss Richard Branson broke the record for the fastest crossing of the English Channel by an amphibious vehicle in a Gibbs Aquada, beating the previous record by four hours.

With many niche spare parts among the disposal offering, targeted marketing was key to generate sufficient interest in the £750,000 disposal which was held at Gibbs’ car plant. Our staff spent a week researching and contacting prospects with details of the auction.

The on-site auction sale was effectively executed and the stock was cleared from the premises under managed supervision by John Pye & Sons’ staff within four working days.
