Industrial auction specialist Maynards has announced the continuation of a series of secured party sales involving the assets from another complete JD Norman plant in Germany.

Maynards is managing the sale in conjunction with a global team of automotive asset specialists that include Robert Levy Associates and Gordon Brothers. Over 1000 late-model assets are available from brands such as Samag, Heller, Heckert and others. In total, the sale includes over 150 CNC machines, as well as leak testers, parts washers, deburring machines, robots, cranes, QA equipment, tool-room equipment, factory vehicles and storage equipment.
