By Alex Dahm22 February 2011
Online heavy equipment sales company Iron Planet is expanding its operations in the Middle East.
"We're excited to announce IronPlanet's expansion into the Middle East with our strategic base of operations located in Dubai," said Jeff Jeter, Iron Planet executive vice president.
"IronPlanet has been successfully selling equipment into the Middle East and has an established customer base throughout the entire region," said John O'Sullivan, Iron Planet Middle East managing director. "Our new operations in Dubai will create the local presence necessary to quickly respond to customer needs and provide one-on-one support from a multilingual, local staff of representatives as we approach our first auction in February."
The first auction of equipment from the Middle East is 23 February. There are Iron Planet auctions most weeks, offering equipment from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and now the Middle East, to buyers around the world.
The equipment is sold online from the consignor's location, eliminating transportation costs for the seller. Inspection reports and the Iron Clad Assurance product are available to help buyers make a decision on condition.
