Australian Automotive Manufacturing Plants Shutting Down Operations

Del

Hilco Industrial Acquisitions B.V. (www.hilcoind.com) announced today that it will lead the disposition process for a massive machinery and equipment asset sale which will effectively shut down the automobile manufacturing business on the Australian Continent. The sale comes because of the recent closure of all Toyota Australia manufacturing operations, the last remaining auto production facility remaining on the continent.

This unprecedented auto equipment sale will include all the key production shops and vendors that have been part of the manufacture of cars in Australia for over 60 years. All the equipment will be offered for sale via private treaty from their production shops including aluminum casting, furnaces, engine line machining, assembly, robotic automation, presses, extruders, plastic injection molding machines, welding lines and plant services. Certain key machinery and equipment items will be offered for sale via an online auction including maintenance workshops and general equipment. The auction will be conducted by Grays Online (www.graysonline.com), a JV partner with Hilco Industrial Acquisitions B.V.

To learn more about this automobile manufacturing equipment sale a special website has been set up: www.australia-automotive.com or at #australiaautomotive.

Offers are invited on all the major equipment and can be made up until October 3, 2017. Negotiations and sales begin immediately. All the equipment offered in this massive sale is available for inspection by appointment only. Please contact: Ernst Rost Onnes (erostonnes@hilcoglobal.com) immediately to schedule appointments.

Robert Bouland – CEO of Hilco Industrial Acquisitions B.V. said, “There has never been a sale conducted of this magnitude with such an abundance of state of the art manufacturing equipment. While it is unfortunate to see the industry in Australia shut down operations, this sale presents a very significant opportunity for those seeking to acquire critical production equipment to augment their facilities.” Mr. Bouland indicated that the demand globally has been extremely high, especially with the Asia – Pacific region and Europe. He added, “We expect that as we begin to publicize the sale, the North American interest will grow rapidly.”

Sales begin immediately. The equipment offered in the private treaty sale includes all categories of production. All key suppliers and vendors in the sale include the following: Toyota Altona Car Manufacturing Plant; Toyoda Gosei Australia; Continental Pty Ltd.; Britax Childcare; Metalsa Australia; ROH Automotive; Toyota Boshoku Australia; Chassis Brakes International; and Denso Automotive Systems Australia.
