German term or phrase: Industrieverwertung
"Mit seiner Akquisitionsstrategie bezüglich der Auktionshäuser und seiner Website lässt xyz Old und New Economy immer mehr zu einem One Economy-Unternehmen verschmelzen. Für die xyz Kunden wurde damit eine Firmengruppe aufgebaut, die alle Kompetenzen im Bereich der Industrieverwertung professionell abdeckt."

This one has been bugging me for a while now. "utilization", "exploitation", "salvage", "processing" etc. don't fit the bill.

The best I can come up with is "industrial asset recovery" - can anybody out there confirm this?

... in the area of industrial asset liquidation
Explanation:

The way I understand it they are liquidating industrial assets through their auction houses - these assets come from distressed inventories, overstocks, bankruptcies or other types of liquidations.

Hope this helps.

I think you're spot-on Gunther. I wasn't far off with "recovery" but "liquidation" makes it absolutely clear.

Thank you!

specialties in industrial applications


Explanation:
The difficulty in this sentence is the mixture of "competencies" with "industrial processing". An almost synonym for "competency" is specialty. So the end of sentence would read "... , which covers all sopecialties in the area of industrial applications". This also makes logical sense.

The one thing that keeps bugging me, is what does "auctioning" have to do with industrial applications. What are they auctioning?

utilization of the industry


Explanation:
maybe the problem is not 'verwertung', but 'Industrie'.
My impression is that we are talking about one specific industry, not industry in general.
industrial has too many other meanings.
