As the year comes to an end, Aaron Equipment Company is looking back on the past twelve months of its auction platform. That scrutiny of the Aaron Auction arm of the organization, which specializes in asset liquidation of new and used process and packaging equipment, has resulted in much cause for celebration. That’s because the bidding and selling side of the business has proven a resounding success in 2013. Aaron Auctions, which began three years ago as an offshoot of Aaron Equipment Company, has since grown into a full-fledged operation in its own right. In that timeframe, the industrial online auction platform has lived up to its aim of becoming the trusted source for equipment auctions, liquidation sales and asset management services. “Thus far, we have had 25 auctions in the year 2013,” explains company spokesperson Bruce Baird.[More]

Aaron Industrial Marketplace’s February Auctions Go Four for Four

by AaronEquipmentCo3. March 2011 14:22
Casein Plant, Plastics Equipment, Toner Equipment and Wheel Loader All Bring in Top Bids Chicago, IL – March 7, 2011 – March rolled in like a proud lion at the Aaron Industrial Marketplace (AIM), with all four of its late February process equipment auctions garnering positive results. Over the course of two days, February 23 and 24, 2011, the quartet of casein plant, plastics equipment, toner equipment and Komatsu wheel loader auctions successfully closed after a buying frenzy that company management describes as “spirited bidding.” Setting the stage for the quadruple triumphs was the Komatsu wheel loader auction. When bidding on this heavy equipment bucket loader, which was conducted in conjunction with Return on Investment Auction services of Minnesota, wrapped up on February 23, 2011, the reserve price was easily met. February’s extreme weather conditions in the Midwest contributed to this successful close, with the winning bidder planning to put the machine to work on snow removal. That same day, the Aaron Industrial Marketplace scored a second bidding coup with its toner (pulverized) manufacturing equipment auction. This sale consisted of 100 lots located in two different locations. Before its successful completion, it drew in 34 registered bidders from the U.S. and abroad, with the ultimate winners hailing from four different countries. This achievement elevated AIM in its goal toward becoming an international process equipment auction presence. Aaron Industrial Marketplace management barely had time to celebrate these sales victories before two more auctions upped the company’s batting average. Just one day later, AIM ended bidding on a plastics related equipment auction and a complete casein plant auction. Fifty-eight lots made up the former sale, including cast film line, major components for a profile line, extruders, granulators, pelletizers, mixers, blenders, sizing tanks, pullers, winders, hammer mills, dryers, compressors and more. It was the second plastics-related AIM auction of its kind, with 65 bidders competing for its items and both the number of lots sold and the ending dollar amounts exceeding projections. The outcome was so favorable in fact that the Aaron Industrial Marketplace will hold another plastics auction in July 2011. Sharing the day’s spotlight was the complete casein plant auction. AIM spokesperson, Bruce Baird, explains, “We are currently in negations on the sale of this plant, with several active bidders taking extreme interest in its components.” Of the four auctions as a whole, he adds, “We are pleased with the results and see strong values for the rest of the year.

Latest Aaron Industrial Marketplace Auction Proves Bidding Success

by AaronEquipmentCo7. February 2011 15:32
Tank and Vessel Lots Goes for 15 Percent Above Expected Value Chicago, IL – February 7, 2011 – As the final seconds on the latest Aaron Industrial Marketplace (AIM) auction ticked down late last month, the tank and vessel lots up for bid closed at a higher-than-expected sales price. In fact, after just 18 hours on the auction block, the 64-piece lot sold at an average of 15 percent above the expected auction value. Taking place January 26–27, 2011, this bidding success story set the pace for a series of upcoming AIM auctions throughout the month of February. All indications point to 2011 being a favorable year for AIM sellers who are putting their process equipment up for sale on the AIM marketplace. This Aaron Industrial Marketplace bidding coup is a piece of the much bigger online auction pie. On January 19, 2011, Bloomberg news reported that EBay Inc., owner of the largest e-commerce market, had forecasted “2011 revenue that may exceed estimates.” Indeed, three-year trends show significant growth in the online auction arena. “At the high end of EBay’s forecast for the year, sales will rise 16 percent, compared with 4.9 percent in 2010 and 2.2 percent in 2009. Whereas EBay sells everything from clothing to electronics to automobiles, the Aaron Industrial Marketplace focuses on a single segment: process equipment. Sellers of unwanted new, used and reconditioned process equipment are now leveraging the Internet-bidding momentum in an atmosphere that targets buyers of precisely the items they wish to unload. AIM’s most recent auction success stands as a testament to that niche-oriented model. During the January tank and vessel auction, “We had 53 registered bidders and 20 successful buyers of the equipment,” explains Aaron Industrial Marketplace spokesperson Bruce Baird. He goes on to point out how the marketplace managed to secure selling prices that were substantially higher than the expected value. “AIM did a dedicated marketing campaign that reached more than 40,000 Aaron Equipment (AIM’s parent company) customers that had shown an interest in tanks.” That interest ultimately led to a bidding frenzy that paid off for the sellers included in the auction lot. Items contributing to the auction’s prosperous outcome included stainless steel jacketed and non-jacketed kettles, vacuum kettles, vertical and horizontal tanks, glass lined tanks, pressure tanks, processor tanks, cold water tanks, jacketed milk tanks, mix tanks and a complete insulated scraper mix tank system. In addition, this recent storage tank auction featured equipment manufactured by APV-Crepaco, Cherry Burrell, Mueller and Pfaudler. The individual pieces sold for anywhere from $700 to $16,950. Such selling prices, however, wouldn’t have been possible if not for AIM’s intuitive auction model. The easy-to-use bidding platform allows buyers to register and bid, view lot catalogs and create a custom watch list so they never miss out on a desired piece of equipment. Equipment owners who are looking to secure the best possible price on their unwanted new, used and reconditioned inventory can learn more about the Aaron Industrial Marketplace online at http://www.AaronIndustrialMarketplace.com. Buyers and sellers who are interested in taking part in the upcoming complete casein plant, toner manufacturing plant and plastics-related equipment auctions can contact Bruce Baird at (510) 452-7858.
