IronPlanet, a leading online marketplace for used heavy equipment, this week announced it is expanding its operations in the Middle East based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
“We’re excited to announce IronPlanet’s expansion into the Middle East with our strategic base of operations located in Dubai,” said Jeff Jeter, executive vice president at IronPlanet. “Dubai provides us good access to IronPlanet customers across the Gulf Region and we look forward to providing these customers a better way to buy and sell their used equipment through IronPlanet’s global used equipment marketplace.”
Establishing IronPlanet’s operations in Dubai coincides with the first auction to feature equipment from the Middle East on Feb. 23. IronPlanet conducts auctions nearly every week, selling equipment from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and now the Middle East, to buyers around the world.
“IronPlanet has been successfully selling equipment into the Middle East and has an established customer base throughout the entire region,” said John O’Sullivan, managing director for IronPlanet Middle East. “Our new operations in Dubai will create the local presence necessary to quickly respond to customer needs and provide one-on-one support from a multilingual, local staff of representatives as we approach our first auction in February.”
