Adam Partridge Auctioneers & Valuers, currently marking their five-year anniversary with a string of specialist sales, have acquired the established auction business of Patrick Cheyne based in Hale, Altrincham.
Sir Patrick, who is retiring, will remain as
a consultant with the office run by Della Hartley, who has worked
there for some 26 years.
Managing director Adam Partridge said: "I
have been interested in Sir Patrick's business for many years. The
deal almost happened some five years ago when I left my post
running Frank Marshall of Knutsford to start my own business. Sir
Patrick has been a reluctant retiree but we have remained in
contact and on good terms over the years."
Cheyne's premises at 38 Hale Road,
Altrincham will be used as a valuation office and consignment
centre with items sold at either of the firm's existing salerooms
in Macclesfield and Liverpool.
Alongside this acquisition, Adam Partridge are also opening a
saleroom at Houldsworth Mill in Reddish, Stockport.
