“Like Ritchie Bros., Rouse has spent decades building its reputation as a trusted partner in the industrial equipment industry,” Ann Fandozzi, CEO of Ritchie Bros., said. “Rouse offers a complementary tool kit to what we offer at Ritchie Bros. today. Together, we believe we can accelerate both of our growth efforts by providing customers more robust data, better service and innovative solutions to help their businesses run more efficiently. At Ritchie Bros. today, we are more than auctions.”
Beyond data and analytics, Rouse Services also offers equipment sales support and fleet appraisals. Both these services will continue under Ritchie Bros. and Rouse will maintain its physical presence in Los Angeles for the foreseeable future.
“Both of our brands have been built around integrity and professionalism and we are so excited to bring Rouse’s solutions to our customers around the world,” Fandozzi said. “With Rouse as part of the Ritchie Bros. family of solutions, we increase connectivity and deepen our already strong relationships with fleet owners and asset-backed lenders. Together we are stronger and will accomplish even greater things for our customers.”
