Contrary to popular belief that the UK’s construction industry has become redundant, there are over 2000 active mines, quarries and offshore drilling sites with the UK’s jurisdiction. These active operations provide over 35,000 jobs and cultivate over £30billion every year.

With the construction industry heavily engaged in mining, refining and production of raw materials as well as constructing buildings, houses and industrial facilities, construction auctions have become even more important with projects such as The Drakelands mine (formally the Hemerdon mine) being reopened and which constitutes the 4th largest reserve of Tungsten in the world.

The construction industry is also incredibly vital to almost every other industry sector. For instance every year the UK produces:
  • Nearly 90million tonnes of fossil fuel that provides power to our homes, businesses and motor vehicles
  • Over 50million tonnes of sand  which is used in concrete and building foundations
  • 4million tonnes of Silica which is used in structural materials, microelectronics and as components in the food and pharmaceutical sectors
  • Over 80million tonnes of crushed rock which is used in the road construction, asphalt, concrete and is even used as ballast
  • And around 40kg of gold which is used in jewellery, electronics and aerospace industries
Each of these examples require dedicated construction equipment and with the assistance of Auction News you can access exactly what you need, when you need it!

When you register and use Auction News you have immediate access to over 100 live auctions at any given time and because we’re completely independent and separate from all auctioneers and auction houses, all the information is on hand, exactly where you need it to be!
