Hilco Industrial and Gordon Brothers Group Partner to Acquire Heavy Haul Energy Logistics Fleet from Wilbanks Energy

Jan 12, 2016
Asset Sale to Begin Immediately

Hilco Global and Gordon Brothers Group announced today that they have executed a definitive agreement with Wilbanks Energy Logistics LLC and its affiliated entities to acquire the company's entire fleet of trucking and heavy haul equipment.  An orderly sale of assets will begin immediately and will be managed jointly by Hilco Industrial and Gordon Brothers Group's Commercial and Industrial Division.

Wilbanks operated as a full-service energy logistics company until being placed into receivership due to adverse market conditions affecting the oil and gas industry. The company served the Permian Basin with full-service yards located in Artesia, NM; Carlsbad, NM; Hobbs, NM; and Gardendale, TX. The company's fleet of over 400 pieces of equipment includes Winch Trucks, Gin Trucks, Bed Trucks, Twin-Steer Tandem Trucks, Heavy Haul Trailers, Wheel Loaders, Forklifts, Telehandlers, Manlifts, Service Trucks, Vehicles, Crawler Cranes and Hydraulic Truck Cranes. The late model Wilbanks equipment received the 2014 Fleet of the Year Award from Go by Truck in the vocational category.

"We are pleased to bring this package of late model equipment to the marketplace. While the fleet previously served oilfield uses, it has many other industrial applications," stated Robert Maroney, President of Gordon Brothers Group's Commercial & Industrial Division. "We have already seen a great amount of interest from strategic buyers and expect this to be a very fast private treaty sale."
