UK Home Appliance Factory Contents Go Up for Auction

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

Headquartered in Dublin, the global company has manufacturing and development centres worldwide. It produces domestic appliances for popular brands such as Morphy Richards, Britannia, Belling, and LEC. In November last year, the company announced the consolidation of its UK manufacturing operations and the closure of their Prescot facility.

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

Additionally, the auction features catering supplies, workbenches, extraction equipment, racking, office furniture, seating, modular buildings, and more.

Glen Dimplex is partnering with NCM to clear the site sustainably. This initiative prolongs the lifecycle of the specialist equipment, allowing it to be reused and redeployed by different businesses and manufacturers. It diverts surplus items from landfill, benefits the local community, and provides companies with access to equipment at a reduced cost compared to new machinery.

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

For businesses looking to scale up production, expand manufacturing capabilities, or explore new service areas, this auction catalogue offers various opportunities.

A viewing day is scheduled for 17 July by appointment only. Interested parties should contact NCM on 01302 898260 or email [email protected] to book.

The online auction for Glen Dimplex concludes on 18 July from 11am. Interested bidders can browse the catalogue and register to bid now.

Private treaty offers can be made before the auction ends. For more information, email [email protected].
