London, UK, 20 May 2008

Mascus available in one more European language

Mascus, the First truly Pan European electronic marketplace for used construction equipment, transportation vehicles , tractors, harvesters, forklifts, forest and groundscare machines includes another Eastern European language to its platform. From the middle of May, 2008 Mascus's services are available in Bulgarian language, which is the 25th language that the site is accessible in.

"Making Mascus's services available in Bulgarian was an important step for us to help Bulgarian construction, transportation, logistic and forestry companies and farmers to trade between each other. From a certain period of time the number of buyers from Bulgaria, visiting Mascus has been increasing. Providing our services in the dealers' native language has always been a priority for us ", says Mascus's Director Fredrik Larsson.

Developing the internal market of used machinery in Bulgaria

Since joining the European Union last year in January, Bulgaria has been developing fast. Now all Bulgarian dealers of used equipment and used transport vehicles have a better opportunity to trade between each other in the country and with dealers from over Europe. "Mascus is probably the first on-line marketplace in Bulgaria that offers multi-local services and opportunities simultaneously to sell at one place used machines in these six categories; transport, construction, agriculture, material handling, groundscare and, forestry. As resellers in Bulgaria still trade with various used machinery and transport vehicles, Mascus offers them a good possibility to place all their used transport, construction, agricultural, material handling, groundscare and forestry equipment on their local site www.mascus.bg and their machines will be visible in whole Europe in 24 other languages." says Tomasz Odrobinski, responsible for Mascus's internationalization. "This is also excellent opportunity for Western European exporters. From now on, Bulgarian dealers can easily search from ads of used trucks, tractors, harvesters, backhoe loaders, forklifts, forest or groundscare machine from across Europe in their native language." he concludes.

Even more languages and further improvements

Adding Bulgarian language is just another improvement in Mascus's strategy to deliver multi local services to buyers and sellers across whole Europe. Recently, Mascus has implemented a new moderation system to reduce the risk of placing ads and users are offered security advice how to use safely the marketplace. In addition, new categories in all sectors have been added to satisfy all dealers' needs. "In the near future even more languages and innovations will be implemented, as we are constantly expanding and determining our position as the First truly Pan European marketplace for heavy used equipment and transportation vehicle with a multi-local approach." adds Tomasz Odrobinski.
