PLAINFIELD, Ill. — It was announced earlier this month that Lake Charles Auto Auction in Lake Charles, LA (LCAA) has partnered with Auction Management Solutions, Inc. (AMS) for business development consulting.
Established in 1991, Lake Charles Auto Auction was started by Mike Pedersen as a two-lane night sale, catering to independent dealers in the area. Today the operation is run by the second generation, Mike’s son Matt, who purchased the auction from his father in 2012. Matt Pedersen commented, “It has been such an honor to learn this business from the ground up, and we are very excited to take the auction to the next level.”
LCAA expanded the facility in 2015 to a 4-lane auction and are now about to complete a $2 million renovation to the main office building, including creating additional dealer parking. Pedersen added, “We are very excited to get into the new building to better serve our dealers. We expect to be moved in by the end of October. We have spent a lot of time building a great base of dealer consignment business over the last several years, and we feel that it is time now to start to expand deeper into the world of national consignors. We feel that AMS can be a great help to achieve our goals.”
Tom Stewart, President of AMS added, “We are very excited to have LCAA join the AMS group of independent auctions. We started AMS with a focus of partnering with independent auctions to assist in growing their business, helping them utilize marketing efforts to increase their presence in the market, and to increase profitability. We have a proven sales strategy that delivers proven results for our auction partners.”
