A tried and tested cooperation between Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers und AGRAVIS

Both partners have conducted auctions in Meppen together for more than ten years now. The public auction held in 2014 marked the peak so far of the consistently growing, smoothly-functioning cooperation between Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers and the AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG over the time period of ten years. Over the past years, more than 20,000 objects and equipment went under the hammer. Purchasers came from more than 60 countries across the world.

A success model with an incomparable atmosphere

The auction represents a success model for both companies, which had not yet been experienced in the agricultural sector. For the second-hand machine business by the AGRAVIS Technology Group, Technology Group, the stationary auction continues to be of great importance, says Guido Ottens, Managing Director of the AGRAVIS Technik Center GmbH: "The auction, with its incomparable atmosphere, is an important additional revenue pillar and simultaneously the right way to market agricultural machinery, as we thus reach new markets and countries".
