Euro Auctions U.S.A. held its first sale in the United States on June 26. Earlier this year, Euro Auctions purchased a piece of property in Newnan, Ga., that had been the site of an auto auction operation for many years, and was the site for this Euro Auctions U.S.A. sale. Many customers attended to place bids on the machinery.
