Historic Alabama: Bidderbidderbidder…sold!

J.M. Wood Auction Co. is celebrating 50 years of selling machinery across the country

Montgomery’s J.M. Wood Auction Co. is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, five decades after Malcolm “J.M.” Wood started the company. Wood is shown here in the early years. Now, the company is one of the three largest industrial/construction auction companies in the U.S. Earlier this year, the company completed its 50th four-day construction auction, with $138 million in gross sales and bidders from 49 states and 12 countries. Event sales totaled 5,200 machines and trucks.
