The first Ritchie Bros. auction dates back to 1958 when brothers Ken, Dave and John Ritchie auctioned off items from their Kelowna, BC furniture store to cover a debt. Five years later, the brothers made their initial foray into the industrial market, auctioning $600,000 in equipment.
In the ensuing decades, the company expanded its operations across North America and eventually, overseas. All the while, Ritchie Bros. has adhered to its core operating philosophy of staging fair and transparent auctions that benefit buyers and sellers alike.
