History

Shattuck LLC was founded in 1987 in Austin, Texas. Having apprenticed for J.C. Harper, a widely-regarded auctioneering firm, Greg Shattuck strived to create a company driven by similar principles. With trust and partnership as its guiding values, Shattuck focused on filling a genuine gap in the auction marketplace – medical equipment sales.

After some initial success selling individual pieces of medical equipment, Shattuck began conducting scores of hospital liquidations and surplus medical equipment auctions in Texas. As a result, Shattuck became well known in the industry for its expertise in remarketing this class of equipment.

Committed to innovation, Shattuck became one of the first auction companies to go online, conducting its first online auction in 2000. As the popularity and success of online auctions grew, Shattuck decided to build a proprietary online auction platform, Slapsale.com. Owned and maintained by Shattuck, the site is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of Shattuck clients.

After more than 30 years in business, Shattuck now sells millions of dollars of equipment annually. Although Shattuck specializes in healthcare, laboratory, dental equipment, and heavy machinery, it also sells equipment for a wide-range of commercial businesses including manufacturing, telecommunications, dietary and food service, and fitness centers.

Shattuck’s success and longevity are directly linked to its unwavering commitment to customer service. With a customer contract renewal rate of more than 99 percent, Shattuck has proven to be a partner its customers can trust.
