There’s plenty to bid for in auction business as the market moves online | The Times
"The global market for used goods is growing, with the internet accounting for an ever larger portion.”
Our CEO John-Paul Savant spoke to The Times following our recent IPO, about how the ranks of auction fanatics are swelling, as more people look beyond generic wares sold through high street chains. He reflects that there is “a real drive among consumers to seek individuality”.
John-Paul goes on to explain how auctioneers who use ATG’s online marketplaces can reach a deeper pool of bidders. And where regional houses used to rely on local buyers, “we make small companies big by connecting them to a global database and giving them access to technology that is richer than something they could invest in themselves”.
