Final Bids on Potato Processing Facility Surplus Equipment Achieve Sales Goals

Our clients know that they can count on us to secure them top dollar for their unwanted used equipment regardless of their industry.

The Aaron Industrial Marketplace (AIM) ushered in spring on a high note with another successfully closed auction. Running March 17-18, the company’s latest bidding action encompassed a complete potato processing production line from a Minnesota facility. Consisting of 125 lots, the auction not only closed with a successful sell-through rate but it also easily attained its projected dollar amount.

Conducted in conjunction with the Return on Investment Auction Firm of Minneapolis, Minnesota, the potato processing facility surplus equipment auction was made up of 125 lots. Up for bid were assets no longer needed in the ongoing operations of a major potato processing plant. They included an Idaho blancher, Odenberg peelers, an Odenberg twin screw potato scrubber, G. Mondoni product filler, stainless steel jacketed kettles, Urschel slicers, blenders, a Loma X-ray machine, assorted stainless steel tanks, assorted pumps, a Lantech stretch wrapper plus other assorted equipment specific to the potato processing industry.

Despite its tight and narrow market segment, the auction had 24 registered bidders from across the United States and an additional six foreign buyers. The bidding ended with an outcome the AIM client was extremely pleased with in terms of both its sell-through rate and the dollar amount recorded. These benchmarks proved Aaron Industrial Marketplace’s slogan true: “Every plant in the world runs on Used Equipment!” … including even, it appears, potato processing plants.

“It’s a true testament to our rapid growth that we were able to so successfully close an auction in such a niche industry,” explains AIM spokesperson, Bruce Baird. “I think it’s a safe bet to say that there’s not a potato processing facility around every corner. If we can achieve our sales marks with a limited number of interested parties, we’re very optimistic about our upcoming Paints and Coatings Manufacturing Equipment Auction on April 13-14 and our scheduled generators, chillers, dust collectors and exchangers auctions, where the bidding field will be much wider,” he adds. “Our clients know that they can count on us to secure them top dollar for their unwanted used equipment regardless of their industry.”
