JM Wood Auction Company Inc. held another successful two-day construction equipment, truck, agricultural and forestry machine auction in Montgomery, Ala., on Dec. 1 and 2. This was the final sale at its headquarters facility for 2016.

Consignors at the auction included Cheniere Construction, Alabama Power Company and more than 250 other sellers. One 2004 Cat 980G, provided by Alabama Power Company, brought $150,000 at the auction.

“This was a great year-end auction for our sellers,” said Bryant Wood, JM Wood president. “Optimism in the construction industry was higher than we have seen it in years. Contractors were spending money and excited about 2017.”
