Airport Auto Auction Partners with TPC Management

By Staff Writer May 28, 2024 227

Airport Auto Auction in Knoxville, Tenn., has retained TPC Management Company for strategic consulting and business development.  Airport Auto Auction is a family-owned independent auto auction that has served the remarketing community for more than 40 years. Today the auction is headed by second and third-generation owners Trent and Gabe Long.

“For over four decades our family has focused on building a solid auto auction operation based on state-of-the-art facilities, superior services and quality relationships with our dealer partners and fleet/lease customers,” said Trent Long. “We felt the timing was right to expand our business by reaching out to national institutional sellers and know that working with TPC Management will give us the best exposure to those remarketers.”

“Legacy auctions are the back-bone of our industry, and we are happy to be working with an extraordinary third-generation family-owned auction facility,” says Pierre Pons, CEO of TPC Management. “Cory Helton, Airport Auto Auction General Manager and Josh Benjamin, Fleet/Lease Manager are both seasoned auto auction veterans who demonstrate great leadership in their market, an outstanding understanding of the business, and a firm commitment to their customers. We look forward to an exciting future for their operation as they expand their relationships and visibility in the market.”

Founded in 1981 by Paul Long, Airport Auto Auction is located just off Airport Motor Mile in Alcoa, Tenn., and adjacent to the Knoxville, Tenn., airport.  The auction holds a weekly sale on six lanes every Thursday at 9:15 a.m.
