Continued growth and expansion sees opening of new permanent auction site near Zaragoza
EURO Auctions, the UK’s largest auctioneers of construction machinery and industrial equipment, are continuing to expand having recently acquired a new permanent auction site just outside Zaragoza, in northern Spain, which will see its first sale on 25 February 2015.
Centrally located at Zuera, some 20km north of Zaragoza, the new site is less than 250km from the key markets of Madrid, Barcelona and southern France, offers easy access to major ports such as Santander, Bilbao and Barcelona, and is directly serviced by the railway network.
The 85-acre site, which has a fully asphalted surface, was previously used as a car storage and preparation area, and already has all the features that will allow for a smooth transition into an auction facility, as well as having excellent potential for future development.
‘Spain is an important and expanding market for Euro Auctions and we continued to look for the right site that would allow access to other key markets either through various ports or internal motorways,’ commented Euro Auction’s Jonnie Keys.
‘This, coupled with the excellent facilities on offer 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 have been successfully conducting agricultural and construction machinery auctions in Spain since 2010 from their Valencia site, but continued growth necessitated the move to the new location with its improved facilities and infrastructure, and close proximity to the large French market.
