What We Do

Forging Exit Strategies Since 1961


With their team of experienced, licensed & bonded auctioneers, CIA Industrial has built their reputation as a leading industrial auction partner over the past 60+ years. We work to help companies realize a maximum return on every item they sell through well-publicized auctions that afford numerous potential buyers an opportunity to purchase through competitive bidding.


By maintaining an active role in the industrial and commercial marketplace, CIA Industrial can provide current and accurate asset appraisals for many different categories of equipment. We perform appraisals for leading organizations such as lending institutions, financial consultants, state and federal courts, turnaround management companies along with private individuals.


Our team also specializes in the liquidation, marketing, and sales of industrial assets across a variety of classes and sectors. The main advantage of a liquidation sale is it takes place over a longer time period than an auction. More time to conduct the sale means more time to market the assets, find a strategic buyer, and often results in a higher price. Sellers can review multiple offers and negotiate prices, taking the time to decide which one works for them.

Real Estate

We purchase and sell at auction large industrial buildings all over the United States for our investment portfolio, and are here to help with your real estate sales needs.

Our personal investment in this business and industry is reflected in our growth, success, and every relationship we’ve built since 1961. Through ingenuity, hard work and determination, good principals and business sense, we’ve grown from a one-man operation to a family-owned small business to a national corporation. Our history, our people, and our passions are central to our story, our business philosophy, and the legacy we’re building together.

Your team came on site and gave us a fair price for our equipment, then methodically set-up the facility for auction. The process was so smooth, taking the worry off our hands of emptying the facility.

– R. Alan Farrar,


The way they presented themselves let us know they would be a reliable partner and capable of achieving our goals. We not only wanted to maximize our return but find someone we could trust – we found that in CIA.

– Erwin Hartmann,


Your prompt turnaround time from our initial conversation to you jumping in the car to meet with me at my facility the very next day to the attention to detail to the flexible accommodations were exceptional.

– Joel “YOLI” Silverstein,
