St. Louis Auction Firm, GRS Appraisal and Auction Markets Assets Nationwide for Aviation Company

GRS Appraisal and Auction Markets Assets Nationwide for Aviation Company


A company was recently acquired by a larger organization; excess warehouse space and inventory was to be reduced. A thorough review of the assets and location, resulted in a 30-day plan to liquidate a large warehouse loaded with fork lifts, racking, equipment, aluminum bar stock, leather hides, exotic wood, flooring, downdraft tables, aircraft supplies and tools, finally leaving the building broom clean.

GRS effectively marketed a series of strategic auctions including “Exotic Hardwoods and Flooring", Aviation Fabrication”, “Ductwork and HVAC”. Buyers were attracted from California, South Carolina, Michigan, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio and New York and the local St. Louis Market. 

Auction is a profitable component of the “Circular Economy” ® turning excess inventory and unused equipment into revenue, ultimately diverting assets from landfills.
