Hilco Industrial to Auction Machinery, Equipment and Inventory from Major Retail Display Manufacturer

May 15, 2019

Hilco Industrial, in partnership with Miedema Auctioneering and Hilco Fixture Finders, announced that they will conduct an online-only auction of late-model woodworking and metal fabrication equipment, raw materials, and finished goods inventory from Amstore’s 1-million square foot facility in Grand Rapids, MI on June 6, ending June 11 – 13.

Amstore is a nationally recognized family-owned retail display manufacturer that has been in business for more than 100 years. The company produced high-quality retail displays for leading retailers such as Target, Kohls, and Walgreens. This auction is a great opportunity for wood & metal working professionals to acquire machinery and equipment, as well as a large quantity of raw materials and hardware. It is also a rare opportunity  for small retailers to gain access to a wide variety of already finished retail displays, all at a fraction of the cost of new.

Major woodworking assets include panel saws, CNC routers, CNC machining centers and CNC edgebanders, from Holzma, Weeke and Homag. The metal fabrication equipment features CNC press brakes from Cincinnati and Accurpress, an Accurshear shear, and an Amada CNC laser. For those interested in raw materials, a large quantity of wood flat stock such as MDF, particle board, and melamine will be available for bidding. There will also be a large selection of plant support equipment including hand and power tools, storage cabinets, shop fans, material handling and more.

Retailers can also bid on showcase displays, garment and clothing racks, slat and grid wall displays, display tables, cabinet displays, shelving and other configurable display systems.

The online-only auction will open June 6 and close June 11 - 13. The assets can be previewed on June 7 & 10 between 8 am – 4 pm ET or earlier by appointment. Complete details about the auction, registration, and lot catalog are available at https://www.hilcoind.com/sale/amstore.
