Mascus, the worldwide premium media for heavy machinery and transportation vehicles enters one more continent


Another Significant Internationalization Step for Mascus

With one more office in another major location, Mascus the worldwide premium media, owner of used machinery and trucks marketplace, continues to justify its positions as a global player on the heavy industry market. From the beginning of April 2009, Mascus opens a new office in a third continent - Oceania.

"We have been glad, to witness success in selling Mascus' services in Europe and South Africa and now it is time to enter another continent." says Fredrik Larsson, Mascus Managing Director. "And currently, the right opportunity rose. After we met our present partners in Australia and New Zealand, we knew that these Mascus pages are on their way." he added.


The Australian Mascus Partner

Mascus' office in Australia and New Zealand will open in cooperation with the Gavin Burnett, a successful Australian entrepreneur, who has more than a decade experience in digital media. Mr. Burnet is well-know in the on-line classified media area in that part of the globe. He is the winner of Australia's first whole of Government online web solution contract worth more than $1million in 2001. Two years later, he wins the second one worth more than $4million. The second contract is still in operation today.

"I saw the potential in Mascus' products as soon as I got familiar with their concept. The marketplace offers great advertising opportunities to dealers trading with used farm machinery, construction, agriculture, material-handling, forestry and groundscare machines and transportation vehicles. In addition, customers have the opportunity to use first class Internet stock management tools. What more a dealer could want? An opportunity to sell and manage its stock- and Mascus offers that all." comments Gavin Burnett.
