Mark Kreider started Overseas Motor Works Inc. in 1979, in center city Philadelphia to service Imports. After repeated requests from his service customers, he began to locate replacement cars for them. This put him in contact with many dealers and automobile auctions including the Manheim Auto Auction in Manheim PA, (Lancaster County). When Mark began attending the Manheim Auto Auction weekly in 1988 they had an average of 1800 cars registered every Friday, today, they have over 6000 cars, trucks, and sport utilities every Friday and an additional 4000 "highline" vehicles every other Thursday. Although the Manheim Auto Auction group has grown to over 140 auctions handling over 10 million vehicles a year we are fortunate to have the biggest and the best right here in Manheim. Our sales have pretty closely paralled the auctions as we have gone from selling ten cars a month in 1990 to 200 a month today. Our Auction Management division sells another 500 each month for dealer clients. Unfortunately the retail customer got left behind as the sales business became almost exclusively a wholesale, or dealer-to-dealer only business. This is why we moved the sales business to Manheim, PA in 1998 and Overseas Motor Works Inc began doing business as "Manheim Imports". In 2006 we acquired one of the best retail facilities in the area to better serve our customers. Carlos DaSilva continues to operate Overseas Motor Works in Philadelphia for import service, and repair.
