Equipment auction set as Stein Construction closes doors




Excavators, dozers, backhoes, trucks and other equipment will be sold at auction Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 10 a.m. at 3611 Amnicola Highway as Stein Construction closes its doors after 105 years. Compass Auctions and Real Estate will conduct the auction.

“Stein has been an institution for four generations,” says Paige Holt, president of the auction company.

“However, its closing presents an opportunity for other firms to obtain pieces by Komatsu, Link-Belt, Caterpillar, Freightliner, Peterbilt, International and other manufacturers.

“It took a great deal of equipment to run Stein, so this will be a major event. “The inventory includes heavy-duty pickups, flatbed trucks, water trucks, dump trucks and all types of earth-moving equipment.

“We will also auction off many smaller items, such lathes, grinders, drills and hand tools from DeWalt and other brands.”

Company president Doug Stein said he and his partners will now focus on real estate projects, such as the Black Creek development, which has become the largest residential development in Hamilton County.
