Company History

We've Come a Long Way!


Proxibid was founded in July 2001 in Omaha, Nebraska. Just four young men with a vision to connect auction companies and bidders online, and a dream to create value and jobs right here in the heartland. Since then we've grown to 116 full-time employees based at our Omaha, NE headquarters, in the UK, and even Japan. 

What started as an add-on for auction companies has blossomed into the leading online Marketplace for buying and selling highly valued items. Since our founding in 2001, more than 4,000 auction companies, asset owners, and consignors and buyers from 190 countries across the globe have relied on Proxibid for access to high-quality inventory and the industry's most sophisticated online selling solutions.

The early days were exciting, but nothing is more gratifying than providing our buyers and sellers with industry-leading products and services. 

 While we've grown to become the industry leader, we are proud of our humble beginnings and our Nebraska heritage. Proxibid got its start on the Silicon Prairie and we will always remain committed to the community that has helped shape what we have become.
