King Auction & Realty held a successful total liquidation auction for Dillingham Construction Company on March 15 at the company’s Swannanoa, N.C., offices. The machines were exceptionally well maintained and attracted bidders from throughout the Southeast and several foreign countries through internet bidding.

Most of the auction was held in the drive through services bays of Dillingham Construction Company and that was a good thing due to the heavy rains that fell most of the day.
