Based in Silver Valley, AB, Ritchie Bros. Construction has been in the earthmoving and road lease construction business for 36 years.

“Over the years we’ve had quite a few phone calls with customers looking for Ritchie Bros. auctions,” laughs Ron Ritchie, who owns Ritchie Bros. Construction with his wife Laura.

“I started the company with my brother Alan in 1981. I’ve been buying and selling equipment from Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers forever. Anything we didn’t buy new, came from Ritchie.

“Probably about 60% of our fleet is from Ritchie Bros., so it just made sense to sell with them when we decided to retire.”

Ritchie Bros. Construction will be selling more than 400 items in the Grande Prairie auction, including compactors, articulated dump trucks, dozers, excavators, trucks, trailers, attachments and more.
