Proxibid will open an office, in June, in the United Kingdom to better serve its growing base of UK and European buyers and sellers. Headquartered in Omaha, Neb., Proxibid provides online selling solutions to more than 3,000 auction companies, asset owners and consignors located across the globe.

"We are excited to announce our new UK presence," said Ryan Downs, president and CEO of Proxibid. "This move enables us to better serve our existing UK and European buyers and sellers, and positions us to offer our unique portfolio of ecommerce solutions and access to our large global community of buyers to sellers throughout Europe. The Proxibid Marketplace is growing quickly and international expansion is the next logical step for this organization."

While Proxibid works across all major asset classes, the company has entered into a strategic alliance with Moffat Group, publishers of Resale Weekly, one of the largest advertising publications in the UK and Europe, to gain traction in the UK and European construction equipment and farm machinery markets. Under this new partnership, Moffat Group will leverage Proxibid’s transactional capabilities and online risk management expertise to provide the most secure online environment for buying and selling heavy construction and farm equipment, globally.

"We have always aimed to bring buyers and sellers together globally and now with this ground-breaking partnership, we can provide a safe and secure environment for them to transact business," said Daniel Moffat, CEO of Moffat Group.
