Frey & Sons Auctioneers held an absolute auction April 4 in Seville, Ohio. The auction was conducted for Cuyahoga Bridge & Road to sell equipment that will no longer be needed as the company shuts down bridge construction to focus on rebar and ironworking.

The auction, which drew a large crowd of enthusiastic onsite bidders as well as significant online bidding, featured a selection of well-maintained equipment, including excavators, wheel loaders, and other equipment used in bridge building.

Established in 1963 and based in Archbold, Ohio, Frey & Sons has been a family-owned business for three generations, providing real estate brokerage and equipment appraisal services and conducting onsite and online equipment auctions throughout the year.
