BigIron Auctions has penned an agreement to acquire Sullivan Auctioneers LLC, headquartered in Hamilton, Illinois, the two companies announced in a news release.
“Our shared philosophies of transparency, trust and hard work solidified our decision to combine organizations,” said Big Iron CEO Mark Stock. “Together we are better.”
With almost 80 years of combined expertise, BigIron Auctions and Sullivan Auctioneers will continue as a BigIron Company. BigIron says its acquisition of Sullivan Auctioneers will grow it to one of the largest unreserved online auction businesses serving rural America.
With its purchase, BigIron Company now has locations in Omaha, Columbus and St. Edwards, Nebraska; Hamilton, Illinois; Huntington, Indiana; and Bird Island, Minnesota. Ron and Mark Stock will continue to head the Nebraska locations, while Dan, Joe, Matt, Luke and Michael Sullivan will continue to lead the Hamilton, Huntington, and Bird Island locations.
“We’ve always had great respect for the Stock brothers. They are visionaries and true leaders,” said Dan Sullivan. “We believe the future of our companies will allow us to provide bidders, buyers, and sellers the best possible auction experience, while securing top dollar for their land and equipment.”
