Brief presentation

Experts in auctions since 1958, when the company was founded

Business model:

PS Auction creates effective and successful recycling, by change of ownership of ”new used” tools, inventories, vehicles and machines.

We release capital, reduce resource consumption and maximize asset lifecycle in a documented responsible, value creating and efficient manner. Which, in the long term, is beneficial for our customers, the environment and ourselves.

The Why:

There is only one planet Earth, and we are over-consuming a wide range of its resources. We need a change of strategy now and reconsider before buying, changing or throwing out our belongings.

PS Auction is not a manufacturer. Our role is to maximise resource efficiency by ensuring that tools, inventories, vehicles and machines are not left unused, but are quickly used again by new owners.

Thanks to our professional employees, online auctions, infrastructure and global expansion, we extend the lifecycle of goods that already exist, over and over again.

Goal 2026

European leader in recycling, through sales and consulting.


We have seven offices in Sweden and are represented in further three countries in Northern Europe:


The history

In 1958 Folke Pettersson founded the auction company Pettersson & Son. For several years, local auctions were held in Halland and Småland, Sweden. At the beginning of the 21st century, Lars Liljedahl acquired the company. After 20 years as an auctioneer, he took the next step in the world of auctions by building a national auction company, which moved the business from the auction club to the Internet.

After a few years of development and testing, the first online auction took place. At that time, Ola Happstadius, with a history at KVD, had become a co-partner. In 2013, the company received its first external CEO and the journey towards serious growth began. PS Auction is currently present in four countries, employs more than 60 people and boasted a turnover of more than 300M SEK in 2016. We will always try to preserve the entrepreneurial spirit incorporated in the business.
