Euro Auctions, the UK’s largest auctioneers of construction machinery and industrial equipment, continues its expansion with the acquisition of a new permanent auction site in Zaragoza, Spain, which will see its first sale on 25th February 2015.
Located at Zuera, Zaragoza, Spain, the new Euro Auctions site has a central location being less than 250km away from the key markets of Madrid, Barcelona and Southern France. The site offers easy access to major ports like Santander, Bilbao and Barcelona, which is extremely important in the equipment market plus is directly serviced by the railway network.
The 85 acre site has an entirely asphalted surface, allowing for better presentation of equipment, which Euro Auctions believe is a significant factor. Having previously been used as a car storage and preparation area, the yard already has all the associated features that will allow for a smooth transition into an auction facility. It also has excellent potential for future development to further enhance the auction experience for both buyers and sellers alike.
“Spain is an important and expanding market for Euro Auctions and we continued to look for the right site that allowed access to other key markets either through various ports or internal motorways,” commented Jonnie Keys. “This, coupled with the excellent facilities offered at Zaragoza, was fundamental in our decision to relocate to this region, not to mention having Madrid and Barcelona, the two largest cities in Spain, within a 250km commute.”
Euro Auctions has been successfully conducting agricultural and construction machinery auctions in Spain since 2010 from its Valencia site, but continued company growth has meant moving to this new location with its improved facilities and infrastructure, coupled with the proximity of the large French market.
