Lambrecht Auction, Inc. has been a traditional Auction company since 1958. We have sold real estate, antiques, construction & farm equipment, tools, firearms, business liquidations, and more. In 2010 we began developing a niche business of Building Material Auctions. In these Auctions we sell items such as kitchen cabinets, flooring, lumber, roofing, plywood, tools, and much more. We have grown to a staff of 20 full time people. We now operate out of the former Ellmer’s Glue Factory in Bainbridge, NY. This facility consists of a 48,000 sf warehouse on 20 acres. We relocated our business to this facility in 2016 and it has offered us great opportunity to grow. We still see major potential in this business. We operate a unique niche and there are not many others in the country that offer what we do. We have already grown to be one of the leading Building Material Auction Companies in the US and believe we have a large growth opportunity still to come.
