TRANSACTION :

Upon the acquisition of Torpedo Machining, the new owner decided to cease the subcontract work and focus on the other activities of the company; Hilco purchased all Machinery & Equipment with upfront payment.

HIGHLIGHT :

In the auction we sold all smaller machines, but the major machines were sold by private negotiations to buyers from the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, UK and the Middle East.

CONCLUSION :

It took us longer than expected to sell the major machines, but we finished removing all equipment well before the agreed deadline. The vacant bays can be used for other activities.
