PPL Auction is part of the PPL Group, leading experts in industrial liquidations and equipment sales. The firm has extensive experience selling assets ranging from specialised equipment to complete facilities and multiple plants.
In a public webcast auction on the 22nd of September, PPL Group will sell a printing and handling system for beverage cans. The complete line, which can handle 8, 12 and 20 oz cans, was bought new in 2015 for a cost in excess of £3,000,000. Installed in late 2016, the equipment was never placed into full operation and is currently in storage in Morris, Illinois. The printing and handling line will be sold in two ways – as a complete package and as separate lots – with the sale proceeding with the higher value of the two.
