CCU Coal & Construction Auction - August 20th 2020
“The recent and successful CCU Coal & Construction disposal sale in Zanesville, Ohio, on the 20th August was an auction of highly specialist mining equipment for the coal industry and attracted a bidding audience from across the USA, as well as prospective buyers from around the globe.
With over 250 lots for sale, the auction attracted over 500 registrations to bid on this sale, of which over 50% were 'first time' registrations, showing how strong the interest is currently in this type of specialist equipment. The bidding activity, and eventual successful buyers were 20% of the total bidding audience, and perhaps predictably, many were from the states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, known for its coal mining activity.
On a global level, since Yoder & Frey became part of the Euro Auctions group, who are Europe's largest specialist heavy machinery and construction equipment sales specialists, marketing to a global database has been part of the pre-sale setup. This was evident in the CCU Coal sale, as below the home audience from the USA, bidders from the UK, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada, Jordan, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates and Ghana, were in evidence with many successfully buying equipment.
