Mascus Locator – the biggest online directory of heavy equipment companies

Mascus LocatorMascus, the world’s leading online marketplace for the sale of transportation vehicles, agricultural and construction machinery, forestry and material-handling equipment, has become the dominant platform in yet another area of the marketplace, with its highly successful online directory, Mascus Locator.

“The speed with which Mascus Locator has grown shows that not only is there a strong demand for it amongst both our sellers and buyers, but that it makes the whole user experience a much more interactive and pleasant experience,” explains Tim Scholte, Mascus CEO. “It’s a tool we’ve developed based on the feedback from customers all over the world, and the result has been a mutli-lingual tool that is invaluable for anyone looking for companies selling heavy machinery and trucks, no matter where they’re based,” he adds.

Started in 2009, the Mascus Locator directory’s has proved to be one of the portal’s most popular functions. Its primary goal is to help companies to raise their profile on both local and international markets. Buyers of heavy equipment and trucks always want to know more about the seller and company behind the product or service. The best way to achieve this is to let the sellers present a more in-depth profile and tell buyers about their company on their very own dedicated company profile page. Mascus understands that there should be much more to a seller’s profile than simply a phone number and email address, and by providing a platform for the seller to really promote their true brand identity, a greater degree of trust between buyers and sellers is developed.
