ABC Michigan hopes to open its new, 16,000-square-foot recon ramp, a fully automated detail center, by Feb. 1, 2002. The three-lane facility will include five service bays. The current detail center at the auction is less than 7,000 square feet. ABC Michigan General Manager Mark Hammonds said in an interview with Automotive Fleet that the third lane is an automated car wash that will allow the auction to wash about 100 cars an hour. “It will be nice to have an automated process in place, instead of the manual processes we use now,” Hammonds said. “The efficiencies as a result will be enjoyed not only by the auction, but also by the dealers.”
