EquipNet is partnering with Merck to auction off the manufacturing assets of a closed fine chemical plant in Apledoorn, The Netherlands and Hombourg, France, freeing up a wide array of premium API and fine chemical production equipment. The online event begins at 9:00 a.m. CET on Wednesday, 30 May 2012. To register and view the entire auction catalog, visit http://www.EquipNet.com/Apledoorn-PRWeb
The auction catalog includes the entire contents of the closed plant, including: various glass-lined reactors, a dematerialized water system, stainless steel pneumatic powder suction lifters, vacuum drying ovens unused MRO/parts, as well as warehouse and utility equipment. This is a rare opportunity to purchase premium, pre-owned equipment manufactured by Pfaudler, De Dietrich, FIMA, Sulzer Burkhardt, and other leading OEMs at a fraction of the cost of buying it new. Because the facility is closed, the equipment is available for immediate removal.
Until its recent closure, the Merck plant produced and packaged the full variety of fine chemicals. To see full descriptions and photos of the equipment in the auction catalog, visit the project page.
EquipNet’s UK team is impressed by the variety and quality of items up for auction. “This is a great chance to purchase a wide range of chemical production equipment from one the world’s most advanced pharmaceutical companies,” says Simon Smith, EquipNet UK Project Manager. “There’s a range of used and unused glass-lined reactors, Hastelloy centrifuges, demineralisation plants, chemical storage units, material handling equipment, and much more.”
“You do not want to miss this spectacular event,” asserts Smith.
