The Warrington-based auction house behind the sale of some of the world’s most iconic pieces of music memorabilia, has moved into new premises as part of ambitious growth plans.
Paul and Karen Fairweather, who own Omega Auctions, have used a £450,000 funding package from NatWest to purchase a new unit on Sankey Valley Industrial Estate which will allow them to accommodate increasing customer demand.
The premises will create a new hub for the growing auction house, as well as additional storage and office space. Three new jobs will also be created as a result of the move, taking staff numbers to more than ten within the next year.
Famous for its role in the sale of John Lennon’s glasses, Omega Auctions is the only UK-based auction house which specialises in music memorabilia and vinyl records. It has an annual turnover of £1.3m.
