About ADESA

Our history and background

ADESA was originally formed in 1989 and has since established itself as a leading vehicle remarketing company, with operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and now the UK.

In April 2007, we were acquired by KAR Holdings, which has gone on to be known as KAR Auction Services and is a NYSE-listed business.

In 2014, we acquired a 50 per cent stake in TradeRev, while 2016 marked our further expansion into the UK market through our acquisition of GRS Remarketing, which was itself a successful part of the UK vehicle remarketing sector.

Overview and solutions

We’re now using this combination of experience, expertise and technology to provide products and solutions to dealers, manufacturers, finance, leasing and rental operators.

In doing so, we’re creating a market place where dealers can buy and sell stock in no time, armed with the knowledge that gives them the power to make quick and confident decisions.

It’s also a market place where OEMs can get the insight, analytics and reporting they need to help with vehicle return, refurbishment, logistics and sales and where fleets can maximise values and reduce associated costs.
