Southern Maine Auto Auction to open


AUBURN — Southern Maine Auto Auction has moved into the former site of the Motor Home and RV Super Center, 220 Station Road. Owners Kevin and Catherine Tilton are a third-generation auction company who currently run an auto auction in Hermon and are looking to better meet the needs of the Southern Maine automobile dealers.

The auto auction, which is a “dealer only” auction, will employ upward of 40 people, including car detailers, office staff and drivers. In addition to the auto auctions, the facility is designed to host public auctions, which are held monthly and include a wide range of items including equipment, ATVs, store inventories and hardware.
