EBlock Partners with Kinetic Advantage
Partnership increases dealer inventory options and borrowing power.
E Automotive Inc. d/b/a E INC (TSX: EINC) (the "Company" or "E INC") and EBlock, the leading digital automotive auction marketplace and a sub-brand of E INC, today announced a key partnership with Kinetic Advantage, an industry leader in floorplan technology. The agreement integrates Kinetic Advantage into the EBlock checkout.
The scarcity of automobiles is causing dealers to search for new sources to replenish their inventory. A partnership with EBlock, a well-established fully digital marketplace in Canada and a new player in the U.S marketplace, opens up those sourcing opportunities for Kinetic customers. Kinetic, a strong player in the U.S. floorplan marketplace, becomes a strong source of buying power for EBlock U.S. customers.
"This partnership is a win for our customers in the U.S. Kinetic is a strong floorplan and capital funding source which increases the capabilities of our customers to source the much-needed inventory they seek," said Jason McClenahan, President, and CEO of E INC.
"Kinetic is very pleased to partner with EBlock as a source for inventory to our independent dealers in the U.S. EBlock has a proven track record in Canada and is experiencing exceptionally strong growth in the U.S. Coupled with Kinetic's fast growth and best-in-class service I expect our dealers will greatly benefit from this new partnership," said Marty McFarland, President and CEO of Kinetic Advantage.
EBlock is a brand of parent company E INC. EBlock's online auction empowers dealers, wholesalers, and independent auctions to buy and sell inventory in less time and in a real-time virtual auction that creates the sense of urgency and energy found in a live auction.
