Sandeep Garg - Punj Lloyd Limited (New Delhi, India)

The selection of equipment is incredible, the pace of the auction is fast, and the whole process is very fair and efficient.

Punj Lloyd Limited, India's second-largest engineering construction firm, buys millions of dollars of equipment every year. Faced with a shortage in the local market, Punj Lloyd's President of Plant and Equipment, Sandeep Garg, turned to Ritchie Bros.' worldwide auctions.
