Finnish manufacturing company Remu Oy and the international company Ritchie Bros. known for its online auctions & heavy equipment marketplaces, join forces by conducting a charity auction for Ukraine, which is suffering from the war.
"The fate of the Ukrainians touches us all deeply and as a company, we also want to do something concrete to help. The damage in the region is already considerable at this stage and the need for assistance will continue for a long time. When the idea for the auction came about, it was a pleasure to see that Ritchie Bross also took this opportunity right away, and this way we can together create something meaningful," says Hanna Rissanen, Marketing Director and Owner of Remu. "Hopefully, our example will inspire others in construction industry to take a similar action. We cannot do much on our own, but if an entire industry joins in donating, the impact can be considerable," Rissanen continues, thus challenging the construction industry to join the effort.”
Tomi Keskinen, Area Manager at Mascus/Ritchie Bros. adds to this: “Great initiative from our customer Remu for a good cause. We’re happy to support this charity for the people of Ukraine and mobilize the bidders of our Moerdijk auction to generate proceeds with this beautiful screening bucket.”
This is what we do: Remu Oy will donate the proceeds from the sale of EX 140 screening bucket to the Red Crosss Disaster Fund to help the Ukrainians. The proceeds of the auction after tax will be donated in full to the Red Cross Disaster Fund, from which the aid will be channeled to Ukrainians. The Finnish Red Cross cooperates with Red Cross in Ukraine and neighboring countries. The Red Cross has been present in Ukraine since before the outbreak of the war and is well equipped to deliver aid where it is most needed.
The Moerdijk online auction will take place from May 4 to May 6: rbauction.com
