UK Home Appliance Factory Inventory to be Auctioned

NCM Auctions, a specialist auctioneer and asset management company, is auctioning the contents of a Merseyside-based factory for Glen Dimplex, a leading home appliance manufacturer.

The global company, headquartered in Dublin, operates manufacturing and development centres around the world. It produces domestic appliances for well-known brands such as Morphy Richards, Britannia, Belling, and LEC. Last November, the company announced the consolidation of its UK manufacturing operations, resulting in the closure of their Prescot site.

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

In addition to the specialised manufacturing equipment, the auction includes catering supplies, workbenches, extraction equipment, racking, office furniture, seating, modular buildings, and more.

Glen Dimplex is collaborating with NCM to clear the site in an eco-friendly manner. This strategy extends the lifecycle of the specialist equipment, allowing it to be reused and redeployed by various businesses and manufacturers. It prevents surplus items from going to landfill, benefits the local community, and provides companies with access to equipment at a fraction of the cost of acquiring new machinery.

Amy Rutherford, partnership lead at NCM Auctions, noted: “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.”

Whether you are looking to scale up production, expand manufacturing capabilities, or diversify into new service areas, this auction catalogue has something for everyone.

A viewing day is set for 17 July by appointment only. Contact NCM on 01302 898260 or email [email protected] to book an appointment.

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 also an option before the auction concludes. For more information, email [email protected].
