Auction of UK Home Appliance Factory’s Contents Announced

NCM Auctions, a specialist auctioneer and asset management company, is set to auction the contents of a Merseyside-based factory on behalf of Glen Dimplex, a specialist home appliance manufacturer.

Headquartered in Dublin, this global company has manufacturing and development centres across the world. It produces domestic appliances for prominent brands such as Morphy Richards, Britannia, Belling, and LEC. In November of last year, the company announced the consolidation of its UK manufacturing operations, leading to the closure of their Prescot site.

This largely no reserve online auction features press brakes and punch presses from the distinguished Japanese brand Amada, as well as high-capacity power presses from Taylor & Challen and Wilkens & Mitchell. The auction catalogue also includes lathes, milling machines, precision drills, MIG welding robots, spray booths, powder coating booths, and a fully automated 12-station assembly line from Amber Industries.

Alongside the specialist manufacturing equipment, the auction also includes catering supplies, workbenches, extraction equipment, racking, office furniture, seating, modular buildings, and more.

Glen Dimplex is working with NCM to clear the site in an environmentally sustainable manner. This approach extends the lifecycle of the specialist equipment, allowing it to be reused and redeployed by various businesses and manufacturers. It prevents surplus items from ending up in landfill, benefits the local community, and provides companies with access to equipment at a significantly reduced cost compared to new machinery.

Amy Rutherford, partnership lead at NCM Auctions, commented: “We’re pleased to be working with Glen Dimplex on this project, and their approach to sustainability and opting for a circular approach to their asset disposal has far-reaching benefits for the manufacturing industry and the wider community in and around Merseyside.

“A complete factory auction like this is rare and offers our bidders access to a full range of equipment – covering everything from metal forming and punching to precision welding, assembly, painting and powder coating. We’ve seen a lot of interest from both UK and overseas bidders. In the first instance, I’d ask interested parties to contact us and secure a viewing as soon as possible.”

For businesses seeking to scale up production, expand manufacturing capabilities, or diversify into new service areas, this auction catalogue has a wealth of options.

A viewing day is scheduled for 17 July by appointment only. Please contact NCM on 01302 898260 or email [email protected] to arrange a viewing.

The online auction for Glen Dimplex will end on 18 July from 11am. Interested bidders can browse the catalogue and register to bid now.

Private treaty offers are welcome before the auction ends. For more information, email [email protected].
