Ritchie Bros. to Conduct Auction for Mid-Ohio Contracting

Ritchie Bros. will sell all the assets of Mid-Ohio Contracting’s assets in an unreserved auction in Dover, OH on December 12. The auction will be held on Mid-Ohio Contracting’s property at 1817 Horns Lane NW. More than 580 equipment items and trucks will be sold in the unreserved public auction, including excavators, dozers, pipelayers, wheel loaders, truck tractors and trailers.

“We’re based in Dover, but have worked on pipeline projects in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Maryland,” said James E. Hawk, vice president of Mid-Ohio Contracting. “We started with one backhoe, one dozer, one truck and one trailer and grew from there. We have always ensured our equipment was maintained to the highest level, with our own in-house mechanics.”

Mid-Ohio Contracting started with four employees and four pieces of equipment. During its 36 years in business, the company’s fleet grew to 550 pieces as it employed up to 300 people during busy times. On December 12, the company’s owners, Robert Kandle and Hawk, will retire.

“Mid-Ohio is a well-respected company with an excellent fleet and in one day we will sell it all to new owners — everything a pipeline installation business would need,” said Tim Keane, regional sales manager for Ritchie Bros. “Every item will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices.”
