By Andy Brown12 August 2021

Following the news that industrial equipment auctioneer Ritchie Bros. has agreed a deal to acquire Euro Auctions for UK£775 million (US$1.07 billion) Andy Brown, editor of International Construction magazine, caught up with Matt Ackley, chief marketing officer at Ritchie Bros. to find out more. 

Ackley talks about what the deal will mean for Ritchie Bros. and Euro Auctions, how the company adapted in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and why a hybrid model between in-person and online will likely be the model that the majority of the construction industry adopts in the future.
