DECHOW Auctions Aluminum Die Casting Specialist Pressmetall Gunzenhausen GmbH | foundry-planet.com
After factory shutdown: Foundry, CNC equipment and QA machines will be auctioned online from 04 January
DECHOW, one of the leading industrial auction houses in Europe, is responsible for the sale of the aluminum foundry Pressmetall Gunzenhausen GmbH. Probably until March 2022, more than 5,000 lots will be offered for sale in a total of 5 auctions on the industrial auction platform www.troostwijkauctions.com.
“At the heart of the auction are the die-casting plants”, says Eva Traut, Project Manager AUKTIONSHAUS WILHELM DECHOW GmbH. “In Gunzenhausen, continuous investments have been made in a state-of-the-art foundry since 2004, which guarantees high energy efficiency thanks to the latest technologies, which makes it extremely attractive for the international market”, explains Eva Traut. Hamburg’s experts specialize in the processing and valuation of industrial assets. With its expertise, the industrial auction house ensures, among other things, that interested buyers receive detailed information about machines and plants, thus guaranteeing their return to service. “Our goal is always to ensure that machines and plants continue to be used for production at another site. Because that is the only way to achieve the best possible result for our customer,” continues Traut. DECHOW will have left the aluminum foundry by the middle of the year. By then, in addition to foundry equipment, which weighs several tons, quality assurance machines such as X-ray systems and CNC machines such as various vertical machining centers and lathes will be offered for sale. In addition, all workshop, warehouse and logistics equipment as well as IT and office equipment are auctioned online.
Pressmetall was founded in 1962 as “PMG Gunzenhausen Galsterer & Co. KG”. From 1978, the aluminum foundry launched into machining as a manufacturing step. More recently, the company employed 500 people and supplied medium-sized companies as well as companies operating globally, mainly from the automotive industry.
