Surplus asset management specialist EquipNet provides services to a wide range of industries across the world, from small businesses to Fortune 500 multinationals. This April EquipNet will sell late model packaging and processing equipment, spare parts and MRO equipment. The assets come to the market due to the closure of the Proctor & Gamble facility in Brockville, Ontario.

In 2017 Proctor & Gamble announced the permanent closure of their Brockville facility, planned to take place in late 2020 or early 2021. The site has been operational since the 1980s. The closure comes as part of the firm’s redesign of their North American supply network.
