August 6, 2019, Winnipeg, Man. – Ritchie Bros. will hold its largest-ever Manitoba auction, selling 1,250+ equipment items for fellow 60-year company Hugh Munro Construction Ltd. The unreserved public auction will be held on August 15 in Winnipeg.

“We are doing a major realignment of our fleet as we increase our focus on the quarry side of our business,” said Colleen Munro, owner and president of Hugh Munro Construction. “By working with Ritchie Bros, we can sell more than 1,100 items in a single day and reinvest that money back into our business. As we move forward, we’ll continue to do some civil projects, but will be more selective, and are also diversifying into the unbreakable glass industry.”

Equipment highlights in the Winnipeg auction includes excavators, loaders, dozers, articulated dump trucks, graders, scrapers, truck tractors, trailers, pickup trucks, and more. All items will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices.

“Hugh Munro Construction and its fleet are very well known, as they’ve done work across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and northwestern Ontario,” said Jason Huber, regional sales manager, Ritchie Bros. “Their maintenance program is second-to-none, with a 50,000-square-foot shop and multiple experienced mechanics onsite to ensure their equipment is ready to go to work. Buyers won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to bid on their equipment.”

The Winnipeg auction will be held at 61053 Hwy 207 and begin promptly at 8 a.m. For more information, including detailed equipment information visit or call 1-306-776-2397.
