Mascus (www.mascus.com), an online retailer of used heavy equipment based in Finland, signed its first representative in the U.S. late in 2009.
“The global presence of Mascus will be a great asset for [U.S.] sellers,” says Marc Mandt, CIO of new Mascus partner CarolinaClassifieds. “The current economy offers an excellent opportunity for U.S. customers to sell new and used trucks, forklifts, construction and agriculture equipment, as well as grounds care and forestry machinery in the U.S. and international market.”
Mascus, which employs a classified-ad approach to selling used equipment, has been expanding for two years and is now present in 32 countries with services available in 33 languages. More than 1,000 customers have advertised 30,000 pieces of used equipment on the website.
