Communisis Group’s Printing Facilities’ Equipment Set for Auction

NCM Auctions, specialists in auctioneering and asset management, are overseeing the sale of assets from Communisis Group’s print production, mailing, and fulfilment sites in Leeds and Liverpool.

Communisis, a prominent provider in integrated marketing services, has played a crucial role in supplying print and mailing solutions to some of the UK’s leading financial and public organisations. Following the company’s move into administration last year, the Leeds-based firm is now auctioning off its assets.

The sale features the equipment and contents from the Leeds and Liverpool printing and fulfilment locations. The auction includes exclusive sales of everything from advanced printing and finishing equipment to lifting devices, workshop tools, storage solutions, and office essentials, presenting extensive opportunities for those in the printing industry.

A special live auction on 25 April will spotlight the primary production lines, including printing presses and finishing equipment that were used for creating financial documents, marketing materials, cheque books, polling cards, and various other specialised items.

Key pieces of equipment on offer include a Hewlett-Packard T300 colour inkjet web press, a high-capacity Rotoman EDE 6-station web press with dryer, Drent and Goebel presses ideal for cheque books and financial printing, a Roland R700 6-colour press, Heidelberg printing presses, and a Scitex personalisation line suited for high-speed variable data overprinting, accompanied by a 15-part finishing line.

Additionally, the auction will cover items from the pre-press and plate-making room, large-format proofing printers, Polar guillotines, Hohner, and MBO finishing machines, and more.

Emma Humble, Head of Partnerships at NCM Auctions, stated: “This sale for Communisis is a large project across multiple sites and brings a lot of infrequent and specialist machinery to the market. Our circular approach helps to extend the life cycle of this equipment. It means there are hundreds of pieces of machinery across these sales that will go on to be used by a range of businesses, from start-ups and smaller organisations to those in the print industry who understand the production capacity and quality of the end product they can achieve with this combination of print and finishing equipment.”

“We’ve already seen a great deal of interest from potential buyers both in the UK and overseas. With an auction like this, I would urge potential bidders to book with us and arrange a viewing with our team before the auction.” The live auction of the equipment and machinery from the Leeds site is scheduled for 11am on 25 April.

Subsequent timed auctions will feature the remaining factory equipment, workshop tools, lifting and handling gear, office contents, and smaller machines, running from 24 April to 3 May.

Interested bidders are invited to view the catalogue, register, and place pre-auction bids.

Appointments for viewings are available upon request. To arrange a viewing or for more information, contact the NCM auction team at 01302 898260 or email [email protected].
