Auburn, Indiana. April 10, 2019. Worldwide Auctioneers’ dynamic period of expansion continues apace with today’s confirmation that the company will establish a solid foundation for future growth by moving its global headquarters into the former WWII Museum campus in Auburn, Indiana. The new headquarters are situated on a 30-acre campus inside a 200,000-square foot facility directly opposite and within walking distance of the Auburn Auction Park, with significant improvements and upgrades already underway. As part of this move, Worldwide also announced its intention to stage its long-standing Labor Day sale, The Auburn Auction, at the same facility, scheduled this year for August 31st. The relocation will additionally facilitate a massive expansion of its flourishing private sales and treaty division with the introduction of a dedicated (physical and virtual?)showroom, The Salon at Worldwide.
“At Worldwide the customer is always king and we’re committed to offering each one the optimum solution for selling their car or collection, whether privately or at auction, in the manner that best suits their individual circumstances,” said Rod Egan, Principal & Auctioneer.
In addition to the relocation of its core business Worldwide is also pleased to announce its continued partnership with a unique education program slated to be housed on campus. Unlike any other in the nation, the non-profit center will focus on career path development for K-12 students and, utilizing the military assets housed in the facility, a career path connection center for veterans. The non-profit projects it will cater to the needs of over 1 million students and 100,000 veterans in the next 10 years.
“This is a huge investment in resource for the future and supports a cause close to both mine and Rod’s hearts,” said John Kruse, Principal & Auctioneer. “We are excited to have established a foundation that will lead this industry into the future.”
Along with The Auburn Auction, Worldwide’s annual schedule comprises The Pacific Grove Auction, presented out on the Monterey Peninsula during Car Week, The Texas Classic Auction in Arlington and the Scottsdale Auction in Arizona in January.
