Euro Auctions Readies First US Auction

May 21, 2013

Nearing 400 construction machinery and industrial equipment lots already set to go under the hammer on June 26th, the first U.S. auction for Euro Auctions at its recently acquired site in Newnan, Ga., is on course.

The Northern Ireland-founded auctioneer’s American auction debut includes lots from consignments from some of the largest rental companies in the United States and other regional dealers and rental companies.

“We have long aspired to enter the U.S. market, so in acquiring this site in late 2012 we located Euro Auctions squarely at the hub of the American equipment industry,” said Euro Auctions’ David Betts. “Over recent years we’ve forged excellent relationships with major US companies and have already secured some exceptional construction and industrial machinery from across South East USA for this, our first US auction.”

With its elevated position and rolling topography, Euro Auctions new U.S. site fronts directly onto the Interstate, said to make it both easily accessible and highly visible to passing traffic.

This auction marks the start of regular auctions at the Atlanta site, with another planned before the end of the year and four further auctions envisioned for 2014.
