A global brand with strong foundations

Mascus has become not only a truly global brand, but also a brand that is creating new markets for dealers and end-users worldwide. Mascus’ global presence is built on extremely strong foundations particularly in the key markets of Germany, UK, France, the U.S. and the Nordic Region.

“Our success internationally is rooted in our core markets of Europe and the U.S,” says Managing Director, Fredrik Larsson. “In these markets Mascus is now a well-established and instantly recognized brand among dealers of machinery and vehicles. Our portfolio of services has become an integral part of the used machinery and vehicles markets in these territories.”

New services make business better for dealers

Mascus’ commitment to continual improvement of their services has been a key part of their success. Their new platform launched in 2010 and the heavy industry directory, Mascus Locator, now has over 32,000 listings. More recently Mascus launched three new services to help dealers do business more effectively.

The Auction service allows buyers to find machines, trucks or equipment in both offline and online auctions globally while the new Valuator service lets dealers price items quickly and accurately using the best market data available. This is the first time dealers have had an easy-to-use tool to provide accurate market information within minutes. Finally, the Dealer Mobile solution allows dealers to access their inventory via mobile devices.

“Our commitment to continually improving the user experience and creating new online services is a cornerstone of our success,” says Sales Director Rickard Petersson. “We are always looking at new ways to make life easier for both dealers and end-users, so they can improve their business both in local and international markets.”
