TBAuctions is a tech company that came to life in 2018 with the merger of Troostwijk Auctions and BVA Auctions.

TBAuctions HQ is in Amsterdam,from where they work hybrid. Their labels/partners, however, have locations all over Europe. TBAuctions operates in a fragmented environment with a lot of opportunities for consolidation. In January 2022, TBAuctions was acquired by Castik Capital to support the next phase of growth. Shortly thereafter, Summa Equity joined Castik as a co-investor. With the support of both forces, TBAuctions will continue to strengthen its excellent market position within existing geographies and industries, accelerating organic growth and accelerating the pace of add-on acquisitions to build the leading pan-European auction house.
