SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 18, 2015 /CNW/ - Ritchie Bros. (, the world's largest industrial auctioneer, will conduct back-to-back unreserved public equipment auctions in Utah on September 29 & 30, 2015. The September 29 auction will be held at Ritchie Bros.' permanent Salt Lake City auction site, and features equipment items from dozens of owners. On September 30, Ritchie Bros. will conduct a one-owner, complete dispersal auction for the Shurtleff & Andrews Corporation at their site. Shurtleff & Andrews is a Utah-based heavy industrial structural steel and mechanical erection company that has operated for 65+ years.

Bidders can participate in the auctions in person, online at and by proxy.

"The Shurtleff & Andrews Corporation has worked on hundreds of projects across the United States and their equipment fleet is second-to-none," said Ron Moss, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. "This is a unique opportunity for interested buyers to purchase equipment and tools from one of the most well-respected steel erection contractors in the nation. The day before the Shurtleff & Andrews auction, we will hold another unreserved public auction at our permanent Salt Lake City site, selling more than 850 items for dozens of owners across the state. All items in both auctions will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices."

Describing their equipment, Glen Shurtleff, Vice President of Shurtleff & Andrews, said, "All of our equipment has been maintained at the highest level, which has allowed us to perform our work with minimal downtime. We're known for the quality of our equipment across the country."
