Euro Auctions, the UK’s largest auctioneers of heavy plant and construction equipment, is pleased to announce unsurpassed levels of pre auction registrations for its sale at Valencia on 30 September. The Spanish market has truly embraced the used plant auction concept to such an extent that Euro Auctions has also expanded its Valencia team with the appointment of two new country Sales Managers.

With immediate effect, Euro Auctions welcomes Carlos Bordonado who takes charge of the southern Spanish region, and Pedro Chaves will be responsible for developing the market in Portugal. Come and meet Carlo and Pedro at the Valencia auction on 30 September.

Carlos Bordonado joins Euro Auctions from Iron Planet, where he was the Territory Manager for Spain. Before that he worked for Deutsche Leasing Espana as an Asset Manager, and previously Carlos worked for JLG. Carlos brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Euro Auctions, Valencia, and is fluent in Spanish, English and Italian.

Before joining Euro Auctions Pedro Chaves spent six years with Motivo, JCB’s official distributor in Portugal and previous to that was with SLV, SA, Portugal’s main auctioneers of motor vehicles.  Pedro also has a real understanding of the market and speaks Portuguese, Spanish and English.

The upcoming Valencia auction on 30 September sees good representation across all makes and ranges of equipment, including excavators in the 20t, 10t and mini categories, as well as good selections of dumpers, telehandlers, rollers and forklifts.

Since December 2010, when Euro Auctions established its first permanent auction site in Valencia, sales results have continued to surpass all previous records. Internet activity has increased along with the number of registered bidders.  The pricing on equipment sold has been continuously strong and sustainable, with plenty of stock in the region.

Jonnie Keys from Euro Auctions comments:   “Spain has continually surpassed all of our expectations to the extent that we now need to expand our sales representation in the Iberia Peninsular.  In appointing Carlos and Pedro we believe that the relationship Euro Auctions has with the buyers and sellers from Spain and Portugal will be strengthened.  It is still less than a year since the site in Valencia was launched and in just this very short period we have developed a good reputation in the country and Carlos and Pedro will support our ongoing development.  Spain has readily adopted the American style plant and machinery auction and Valencia now provides Euro Auctions with a strong export platform for machinery bound for North Africa and the Middle East.  Lastly, due to the economic down turn across Europe, Spain and Portugal offers great opportunities for both stock acquisition and future plant sales.”
