Doug’s Market Message

Doug Doll

February, 2018

January was a great month for KCI! Our average weekly sold units increased by fifty units over January 2017. I am excited to share this news because the weather was extremely cold and the retail market was off to a slow start which has been the trend the last few years. Our operations crew battled the severe cold all month and I am proud of each on of our operations team members for the effort they put forth.

A week ago we have promoted David Bates to Vehicle Processing Manager. He will be managing the vehicle processing for the vehicles entering and exiting the auction. If you see David this month, please take time to congratulate him on his new position.

February is lining up to be a fantastic month. Our Midwest Days promotion is scheduled for February 14th and 15th and will feature thousands of corporate and dealer consigned units. Anyone buying or selling either day will be entered for a chance to win 400 pounds of beef. Make plans to join us in-lane or online for this annual event.

We are making progress on the new office building and we anticipate a move-in date of May 1st. Our growth has been tremendous and it is all due to our dedicated staff and loyal customers.

– I look forward to seeing you in the lanes,
