John Pye Auctions will be creating 150 new jobs in Chesterfield with the launch of our new site. When the site launches it will create one hundred and fifty new jobs in the area as a result of its expansion. The 233,000 sq ft site was acquired by John Pye Property – a division of the wider John Pye Auctions group – to support the business’ continued growth and expansion plans.
The new site will be the second largest in our expanding portfolio and comes as a result of an increase in stock volumes from the company’s high street retail clients.
Richard Reed, head of property at John Pye, said: “We are delighted to be able to support the wider John Pye group with the acquisition of our new Chesterfield site. To be able to complete such a complex transaction in just four weeks speaks volumes about the great team we have here, and everyone at the company is very excited for the opening of the new facility.”
The new site is prominently located on the A61, adjacent to Tesco’s Extra and Chesterfield Football Club. It has superb access to close by Sheffield and surrounding towns and is very close to Junction 29 of the M1 Motorway. As well as creating more jobs, the new site will be further developed over the next three to five years and is due to be fully operational by March 2019.
Adam Pye, managing director of John Pye said: “This expansion is a perfect example of our continued growth and ambition. Over the last five years, we have gone from strength to strength, and this new site takes our UK salesroom space to nearly one million sq ft nationwide.
“We are always on the lookout for opportunities to expand our auction house network, and we are continuing to look for further sites in high-demand areas such as the north west. The launch of our new premises in Chesterfield is the perfect way to kick off 2019, which we hope will be another recording breaking year for John Pye.”
