John Pye & Sons are opening a sixth saleroom at their Midlands Hub and Head Office in Nottingham for retail client export stock auctions. The new sixth saleroom at the 5.2 acre auction site in Nottingham houses up to 125 pallets of stock per sale, offering consignments to overseas buyers only for UK Retail PLC clients’ own brand product lines.
It is the third Auction Saleroom John Pye & Sons have opened in the last 18 months, following hot off the heels of Saleroom 4 and Saleroom 5 openings, as the company continues its impressive organic growth development.
The development of Saleroom 6 – a ‘subterranean’ room located directly underneath Saleroom 5, which is open to export trader only viewings, bidding and purchases – has created work placements for local apprentices who have helped with the painting and decoration.
More local auction porter jobs are also likely to be created over the next 12-18 months as export sales are predicted to expand from Saleroom 6, as John Pye & Sons record more overseas buyer registrations on its online auction website platform, which now holds a database of more than 20,000 registered online auction bidders.
John Pye & Sons’ website is now recording over 4,000 weekly overseas unique web visits with the top ten overseas web hits coming from the United States, China, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Poland, Russia, Jordan and Japan.
