Based in Holland, Ohio, Yoder & Frey Auctioneers Inc. has conducted auctions for the construction equipment, truck, trailer, mining, farming and forestry industries for more than 52 years. With auctions held throughout the United States, most notably the company's Annual Kissimmee Winter Auction, Yoder & Frey Auctioneers owner, Peter Clark, was pleased when regional demand led to the development of this local annual auction in Ohio's Heartland.

The first annual Ashland, Ohio, spring auction featured nearly 400 lots of aggregates, construction, farming and forestry machines and equipment including a variety of dozers, excavators, skid steers, trucks and trailers.

Yoder & Frey Auctioneer's next auction is scheduled for Ashland, Ky., on July 7 and will feature coal industry related equipment. The company also plans to conduct its second Ashland, Ohio, auction on Sept. 22.
