TBAuctions acquires Danish Auktionshuset dab


Auktionshuset dab will become one of the brands of parent company TBAuctions, which is also active with other online auction brands in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Auktionshuset dab, which specializes in insolvency and project auctions, adds important knowledge of the Danish market to the TBAuctions organization. Herberth Samsom, CEO of TBAuctions: “By integrating Auktionshuset dab on our scalable online auction platform ATLAS, they can accelerate growth and thus make an important contribution to further building our European footprint.

Auktionshuset dab covers the entire Danish market and maintains excellent relationships with many lawyers in Denmark with specializations in insolvency and project auctions. The TBAuctions organization expands existing Nordic presence with this Danish acquisition. “Auktionshuset dab is the prime example of a specialized, successful online auction platform that is reaching the limits of growth,” says Samsom, “we notice that smaller auction houses are keen to become part of the TBAuctions organization. The technology of our ATLAS online auction platform, developed by TBAuctions internally, enables us to quickly integrate other auction houses on this platform. As a result, they can continue to grow at an accelerated pace without doing major investments in IT themselves.

Larger international bidder base

Kåre Madsen, one of the owners of Auktionshuset dab, is excited to be joining the TBAuctions family. “We look forward to working with our new colleagues from TBAuctions. We can learn from each other and thus improve our market approach. Moreover, we now have access to a larger international bidder base, which increases our reach exponentially, and represents a new level of reach for our Danish sellers. We therefore expect that the number of sellers will increase, something that will subsequently attract more bidders.
