Canton, MA (PRWEB) February 24, 2010
EquipNet is hosting a live and webcast auction of the entire contents of a closed Unilever food processing and packaging facility in Franklin Park, Illinois--just outside of Chicago. Beginning at 10:00AM (CT) on Wednesday, March 3, 2010, the auction event features hundreds of pieces of pre-owned food processing and packaging equipment and MRO/parts, as well as warehouse, utility, and office equipment.
Until its recent closure, the Unilever facility produced dried soup, spices, and other powder mixes for restaurants. The auction catalog boasts a wide variety of equipment, including: a Rietz twin shaft paddle blender; two Tiromat fill and seal bag soup lines; a Waukesha -Cherry Burell two-stage homogenizer; a semi-automatic packaging line; an FMC four-station automatic palletizer; and more.

EquipNet's Global Auction Leader, Tom Noonan, is impressed by the wide variety of items that will be offered during this two-day event. "This auction has a little bit of everything," says Noonan. "There's a complete test kitchen, blending equipment, R&D items, soup filling and sealing lines, and even office furniture."
Whether bidding online or attending the event in person, this auction provides buyers with the opportunity to purchase premium, pre-owned equipment and assets from a leading global manufacturer at a fraction of the cost of buying it new.
