Irontrax │ Silver Sponsor

Irontrax was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 2003 by Joe Santora, a former equipment asset manager at First Merit Bank in Akron, Ohio. Joe, and his equipment manager counterparts of various financial institutions, struggled with finding equipment appraisers that delivered true valuations upon liquidation. Joe, who made it his business to deeply understand equipment valuations, was asked by one of his former banking counterparts to appraise a piece of equipment. Seizing this need in the market, Joe subsequently left First Merit and launched Irontrax.
