Ritchie Bros. opens new auction facilities with auctions

20 March 2008

Grand opening auctions were held by Ritchie Bros. at two new locations in Columbus, OH and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The two-day auction in Ohio broke a number of company records for that region, including the highest gross auction sales, the most registered bidders (both in-person and on the internet), the highest online gross auction sales, and the most auction lots sold. More than 1,800 registered bidders participated in unreserved auction, which generated gross auction sales of more than $29 million. The new facility in Columbus is strategically located to serve Ritchie Bros. customers in the Midwest, the company said. Sunbelt Rentals was a major consignor at the two-day Columbus auction.

Ritchie also opened its new permanent auction facility in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan with a record-breaking unreserved agricultural auction. The company's new 20 acre facility is one of 35 Ritchie Bros. auction sites around the world. with auctions
