Glenn Fuqua construction set to sell more than 100 items in Houston
Glenn Fuqua built his company from the ground up starting with just a dump truck and a shovel. That was back in 1973, and since then he's poured his heart into a company that now handles projects for the State of Texas as big as $12 million.
Now nearing 70, Glenn's goal is to reduce his workload and that means a sizable fleet realignment and taking on smaller projects. With over 100 items to sell, he's trusting in Ritchie Bros. once again to get him the best returns. Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers has served him well in the past and its local territory managers have always had good relationships with Glenn.
"RB is the only company we've bought and sold from … since the early 80s," said Daphne Day, Manager at Glenn Fuqua, Inc. "It's the personal relationships that Glenn built with people at RB that keep him coming back.
"Nothing goes unturned with Ritchie Bros.; they don't let anything slide. They have our best interest at heart, whether we sell or buy."
Pulvimixers, excavators, wheel loaders and more
Glenn Fuqua, Inc. grew over the years to encompass major construction jobs throughout the State of Texas. Projects for the Texas Department of Transportation comprise the bulk of their work volume with specialization in the fields of excavation and highway construction.
The company will be selling 100 construction equipment pieces in the upcoming Houston unreserved auction on August 20. The consignment package includes: 2014 Bomag RS446D pulvimixer, 2012 Volvo EC250EL hydraulic excavator, 2016 Broce CR350 broom, 2013 Volvo SD100D vibratory rollers, wheel loaders, motor graders, a 2014 Freightliner 108SD 2000 Gallon S/A asphalt distributor truck and more.
"Everything is pretty well new, from 2012 or newer," said Daphne. "Everything he keeps updated and well-maintained."
Update on Houston auction results:
