Mascus becomes world market leader in used forestry machines

Mascus, one of the biggest online marketplaces in the world for the sale of transportation vehicles, construction machinery, agricultural, material-handling equipment and forestry, has taken over as the world leader in the supply and sale of used forestry machinery. Building on a solid foundation of high sales and continuing interest from the world’s leading forestry economies, Mascus took the lead position last October and has remained ahead of its rivals since then.

After spending the last few years developing a reputation for supplying the best quality used forestry equipment, Mascus now has a worldwide presence and is at the forefront of the industry. “Because we have become such a trusted outlet for used forestry equipment, we have developed strong relationships with all the major operators around the world,” explains Managing Director Fredrik Larsson. “They now know that if they need to buy or sell top quality equipment, then the best way to do it is through the Mascus portal. Because of our international presence and reach across the globe, we make it easier and faster to find exactly what you’re looking for, or find buyers for your used equipment. This keeps the market buoyant and provides greater choice for all of our customers,” he adds.

A global presence

With a presence in 44 countries and with over 230,000 adverts for used equipment across the world, the Mascus brand has now become one of the most respected and trusted in the competitive world of used machinery sales. And despite a challenging worldwide economic situation, Mascus has managed to retain its position at the forefront of used forestry sales. “We understand how difficult it has been for all our customers over the last 12 months, and to ensure that they can continue to do business we strive to bring our customers the best deals in used forestry machinery,” explains Sales Director Rickard Krøtø. “We believe that by providing our customers with a great choice of used forestry equipment, we can help them drive their businesses forward,” he adds.

Mascus have been constantly improving their presence across the world and now have:

  • More than 3.5 million visitors every month
  • 5,400 companies advertising from around the world

  • A presence in 44 countries worldwide that covers 54 Mascus domains in 39 languages
  • More than 150 new dealers joining every month
  • Over 70 Mascus sales representatives visiting and contacting dealers all over the world

With the forestry industry now starting to stabilize after the difficulties of recent months, Mascus is forging ahead with new ways to promote business around the world. “We’re constantly striving to improve and develop our service to both buyers and sellers, and that customer-focussed service remains at the heart of our business model. With our help, we believe that the forestry industry can face any challenges head on and keep driving forward, which means a greater level of stability throughout the entire industry as a whole,” concludes Fredrik Larsson.
