Construction Begins at New ABC Baton Rouge Location


Auction Broadcasting Co. recently revealed it has broken ground at the all new ABC Baton Rouge facility.

This new auction is located on the Baton Rouge International Airport property in Louisiana, and in phase one will feature six lanes on 30 acres of land, the company explained.

Mike Hockett, chief executive officer,  of Auction Broadcasting Co., said,  “Baton Rouge is a magnificent city with a greater metropolitan area serving over 1.1 million people.  We certainly believe the progressive dealer base in this area deserves to have a first class operation in which to conduct their remarketing operations.  We are proud to become a part of Louisiana, and we are excited at the prospect of participating in the cultural, charitable and religious life of this dynamic, growing area.”

Highlighting what customers have to look forward too when construction is complete, ABC Baton Rouge will conduct its fleet/lease and dealer consignment Sale every Thursday at 10 a.m.  

The facility, a full-service auction, includes mechanical and reconditioning departments, not to mention a Cajun restaurant on site, as well.

“All of the auction lanes will stream Online Ringman simulcast through AuctionPipeline, and we will be posting vehicles 24/7 on SmartAuction, OVE and Openlane through Liquid Motors,” Hockett added.

The location will be managed by Butch Royall, managing partner; and Kevin Rembert, general manager.  

Glyn Morden, whose career has included management positions with  GE Auctions as well as BSC America and ADT Automotive, will be the new auction’s commercial accounts manager.
