BCA has announced the development of a new 65-acre mega-centre in Bristol.
Within easy access of J18 of the M5, BCA Bristol will be a full on-line remarketing centre, with the capacity to handle over 120,000 vehicles per annum.
The facility will operate 24/7, delivering a full range of BCA’s suite of services – defleet and logistics, cosmetic and mechanical preparation, vehicle remarketing, imaging and retail ready preparation.
BCA confirmed that the development of the Bristol location is already at an advanced stage and will create significant employment opportunities across a number of specialist automotive, administrative, remarketing, management and logistics roles.
BCA’s chief operating officer for UK remarketing, Stuart Pearson, said: “BCA’s new 65-acre development in Bristol will create a new standard within the industry, utilising the latest digital technology to deliver a range of multi-channel remarketing, logistics and technical automotive services to meet the needs of our customers.

He concluded: “BCA is handling growing volumes of stock from both new and existing customers across the range of services the Group offers. Additional capacity such as this new facility in Bristol is critical to bringing liquidity, efficiency and choice to the automotive sector.”
