Nations Capital & Ritchie Bros. to Acquire and Sell Assets Formerly Owned by DBi Services

Nations Capital, an asset management and advisory firm focused on opportunistic investments and asset remarketing, together with Ritchie Bros. has entered into an agreement to acquire certain assets formerly owned by DBi Services in a transaction with DeAngelo Contracting Services. The assets were recently acquired by DCS and deemed excess to the ongoing needs of its business units.

The assets include several thousand units of highway and road maintenance equipment including service vehicles, trucks, construction equipment and miscellaneous support equipment located across the U.S. All assets will be consolidated to locations controlled by Ritchie Bros. and NCI and offered to their customer base and interested parties via bulk private sale and auctions.

“We are very pleased to provide DCS and its management team a comprehensive solution to monetize a substantial portion of the fleet excess to ongoing operations,” Jim Burke, EVP, NCI, said. “The size and complexity of this transaction required a highly coordinated effort between our team and DCS.”

DCS is a national growing infrastructure maintenance and operations company focused on providing quality and safe services for State and Local Departments of Transportation, Railroads, Commercial Companies and Homeowners. DCS is owned and run by the DeAngelo Family, which has been in the maintenance business since 1978.

“We are very excited about this transaction with NCI and Ritchie Bros.,” Paul DeAngelo, CEO and founder of DCS said. “It helps us move excess equipment into the market and get it back to work building and maintaining the Nation’s vital infrastructure.”

“We are already transacting on bulk private treaty sales and will be offering a large portion of the fleet for sale through our various marketplaces, including several live, public auctions scheduled for Q1,” Jerilyn Nicholsen, SVP, Strategic Accounts, Ritchie Bros., said. “Used equipment pricing remains strong and we expect to drive robust demand across our omnichannel platform for these assets.”
