Time 11:23 am, February 8, 2016

BCA MARKETPLACE plc has announced the acquisition of Ambrosetti, the market leader in the specialist preparation of new and used vehicles. 

Ambrosetti operates vehicle defleet, refurbishment, logistics and storage facilities in Northamptonshire and Kent, with a footprint of over 100 acres and handling around 100,000 vehicles annually.

Established in 1979, Ambrosetti has extensive technical and administrative expertise in reconditioning, conversion, PDI, servicing, storage and onward logistics movements. The company works with a wide portfolio of customers including vehicle manufacturers and importers, major fleets and dealer groups.

Ambrosetti will be integrated into the BCA services division, BCA Automotive, led by Mike Pilkington.

BCA says the acquisition of Ambrosetti completes the company’s capability to provide services along the automotive value chain; from factory gates or ports with technical know-how and logistics for new vehicles, to refurbishment and logistics for used vehicles and its core remarketing and auction operation.

Avril Palmer-Baunack, executive chairman, BCA Marketplace plc, said: ‘We are committed to broadening the delivery of service across the whole automotive supply chain to support our customers and the purchase of Ambrosetti now means BCA can offer a full logistics, defleet and refurbishment service together with new car preparation to our OEM, fleet and dealer customers.

‘BCA is evolving the automotive sector with joined-up and complementary services that bring real opportunities to our customers wherever they operate within the new or used vehicle marketplace.’
