“It is a unique opportunity for operators to upgrade ground support fleets and operations with relatively new equipment, and we expect high levels of interest,” said Greg Zaharewicz, Director, Commercial & Industrial, at Gordon Brothers.

“This deal is also significant as it marks our first engagement in Finland, adding a new territory to Gordon Brothers’ global commercial & industrial credentials.”

“It is unusual for such a significant specialist equipment package to become available, and we are excited to partner with Gordon Brothers to manage this asset sale at Swissport Finland,” said Jonathan Saville at Liquidity Services.
