NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Auction Management Solutions (AMS) has added Skipco Auto Auction, located in Canal Fulton, Ohio, to its growing portfolio of partners to help assist with business consulting and development.
Founded in 1978 by Robert H. Blowers, Skipco is Ohio’s premier auto auction with Saturday sales open to automotive retailers throughout the region. The operation has grown to become a 12,000 square foot auction facility running four lanes. In addition to cars and trucks, the sale also auctions motorcycles, ATVs, boats, camper, RVs, and powersports equipment.
Managed and operated by Robert’s son Keith Blowers, it is exciting to see the next generation come into the ranks and continue the path started by his father. “We look forward to accelerating the pace of our growth though the knowledge and expertise offered by Tom Stewart and the entire AMS team,” said Keith Blowers, General Manager. “It’s very important in this industry to be razor sharp when it comes to your business practices.”
