CNY Auto Auction was established in 1954.

Fast forward to 1997…Jim Damiano, the current owner, purchased the auction from the Mondore Family with his partner, Robert Ryan. They changed the name to CNY Auto Auction(Central NY Auto Auction), to best identify it with its geographical location. Eventually, Jim took over as the sole owner in 2001. With his philosophy of “realizing your growth”, Jim transformed the auction with the largest renovation in its fifty-year history by adding an 8,000 square foot facility that houses four auction lanes. His emphasis on personal customer service has brought back the prominence from its original roots as Syracuse Auto Auction. Now in its 16th year, CNY Auto Auction continues to excel and prove that it is a great marketplace for both wholesale buyers and sellers!”
