The three-year contract will see us manage the sale of North West Regional Organised Crime Unit's assets.
Wilsons Auctions has been awarded a multi-million pound contract by the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit (TITAN) as the sole provider for the sale of all of its assets, including real estate.
The auction company will be responsible for assets seized by Merseyside Police, Cheshire Police, Lancashire Police, Cumbria Police, North Wales Police and Greater Manchester Police.
This contract is the first major tender win in 2017 for Wilsons Auction, which has branches across the UK and Ireland. Following the success in securing a number of contracts with law enforcement agencies last year, the auction company is now at the forefront in asset recovery, managing the asset realisation process for more than 40 police forces across the UK and Ireland.
Over recent years, Wilsons Auctions has paid in excess of £80 million into the public purse from the proceeds of asset recovery and will continue to add to this through its three year contract with TITAN.
Aidan Larkin, Wilsons Auctions’ Group Asset Recovery Manager said, “Wilsons Auctions is delighted to have been awarded the Asset Realisation Service Framework for six major police forces in the North West of England. Last year we were awarded contracts with a number of law enforcement agencies so to win this significant contract really highlights the superior standard of service we provide to our extensive client base in the collection, valuation and auctioning of assets which is testament to our expertise in this area.
“Wilsons Auctions is proud to manage the asset recovery of over 40 law enforcement agencies in the UK and Republic of Ireland and by providing an online auction facility we are opening up our business to a worldwide audience on behalf of our clients as well as accommodating physical bidders in our auction houses,” he added.
Wilsons Auctions has been in business since 1936 and is the largest independently owned auction house in the UK and Ireland. With more locations throughout the British Isles than any other privately owned auction company, Wilsons Auctions processes a hammer total in excess of £200 million annually.
