Automotive Plant Closure Creates Major Opportunity For Plastics Manufacturers

The downturn in the U.S. automotive industry is creating opportunities for other businesses. In a recent deal structured by PPL Group and Meadoworks, the companies will be auctioning a wide array of plastic injection molding equipment from a former tier one automotive supplier on July 13, 2017.
“This is an excellent way for plastics processing companies to acquire key machinery while staying within their budget,” says David Muslin, Founder and CEO of PPL Group.
Adds Brian Walsh, Managing Director of Meadoworks, “Together, we’re helping plants expand their capabilities with a large equipment offering.”
Inventory at the live and online auction includes 20 injection molding machines with 120-ton to 3,000-ton capacities, Wittman Robots, granulators, resin equipment, cooling water equipment, cranes, forklifts, paint lines (offered both complete and as components), a finishing conveyor and much more.
