Cox Automotive Coronavirus Update

As per the government’s extension of the ‘lock down’ period, all of Cox Automotive’s physical locations and activities remain shut down.

These include all offices, physical auction sites and our vehicle solutions businesses.

But while coronavirus has limited our ability to keep all of our products and services available, we continue to support our customers where we can.

Team members are working from home, supporting customer requirements and preparing for the return to operations.

Our Dealer Auction, Modix and Manheim digital businesses, together with NextGear Capital, continue to operate and support customer needs. Team members in our physical businesses are busy preparing for a return to operations.

We have also introduced a number of temporary measures aimed at easing their burden. Customers will have received communications about these already, but if needed, you’ll find details are on our websites.

Martin Forbes, Cox Automotive UK’s said: “We continue to follow the government’s clear instruction to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives. ‘Doing the right thing’ continues to guide our decision making. We’ve put the health and wellbeing of our people and customers before all else throughout this emergency and will continue to do so. We are currently developing reactivation plans around the business, ensuring we are ready and prepared for when UK Government restrictions change. We will be first out the blocks to help our customers get the wheels of our industry turning again.”

Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the current home of C Walton Limited, Manheim Auctions, Big Thunder Events, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, featuring the iconic Cold War Jets Collection as well as a number of other automotive businesses. All situated within the 670-acre site, there is something to meet the needs of each of our customers. Our wide range of facilities allow us to cater for any type of event, from the standard to the obscure, and thanks to our 3.2km straight, Bruntingthorpe still operates as an active airfield.
