Lakeview, CA: October 24, 2014: Hilco Industrial and Redstone Moore recently acquired the assets no longer required by ABG (Access Business Group, LLC) located at ABG’s nutraceutical manufacturing facility in Lakeview, CA.  ABG manufactures products for NUTRILITE™, the world's leading brand of vitamin, mineral and dietary supplements.

The closure of this facility offers a unique opportunity for manufacturers in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, contract pharma, food, and chemical processing industries to purchase best-in-brand processing machinery.  Hilco Industrial and Redstone Moore are currently conducting a sealed bid sale of the major processing systems and components.  Featured items include: Glatt fluid bed dryer/granulators, Niro spray dryers, Littleford blenders, Luwa and API Basco thin film evaporators, as well as bulk bag unload/fill systems, stainless steel tanks, pumps, and screens.

Thermal and catalytic oxidizers, boilers, air handling systems, and dust collectors comprise some of the facility support equipment.  In addition, pomegranate and alfalfa crops are available for manufacturing, and palm trees, aloe plants and other vegetation are available for landscaping.  These assets will be sold in future auction and liquidation sales through the end of this year and during the first half of 2015.
