A little bit of everything update

Our newest employee, Brandon, is off to Chicago this week for his second level business valuation course through the ASA. His goal is to get through all four levels within one year – a challenging task but he is definitely up to it. Brandon also plans to take the first level CFA exam in December, so he has a real full slate to keep him plenty busy.

We continue to market our upcoming auction for Durra Ink, which has some very well-maintained equipment and would be perfect for a small to mid-printing sized operation. All the auction lots have been posted at www.ar-int.com/auctions_curr.htm so please make sure that you take a quick look.

We have been working on several quite varied appraisal projects recently including late-model construction equipment, a 2007 cast stretch film line used to produce shrink-wrap, an inventory of copiers/scanners/printers and related repair and service parts and the assets of an aerospace repair, maintenance and testing company in the Bay Area.

While I wouldn’t say the economy has recovered, at least in our part of the world, things seem to be looking up.
