Liq­ui­dated en­gi­neer­ing firm’s ve­hi­cles, other as­sets to go on block

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

THE LIQUIDATORS of Lang­ford Power have in­structed Bid­way Auc­tion House to sell all the en­gi­neer­ing firm’s ve­hi­cles and as­sets at its premises at 17 Vonkel Street, Saxon Park 2 in Black­heath on Tues­day.

Lang­ford Power was known for de­sign­ing and build­ing gen­er­a­tors on a large scale, says auc­tion­eer Stef Olivier, who heads Bid­way Auc­tion House.

“All its en­gi­neer­ing equip­ment, and also all the ve­hi­cles and a fork­lift, will be sold as in­di­vid­ual lots on the day of auc­tion.”

The wide ar­ray of equip­ment on the auc­tion floor will in­clude a 3mm metal shearer, a 1.5mm met­al­bend­ing ma­chine and a 1.5mm metal sheet-rolling ma­chine.

Also up for sale will be a pipe ben­der, two 400 In­verter weld­ing ma­chines, and var­i­ous air com­pres­sors.

“All the stocks of new Cum­mins spare parts that were to be used to build the gen­er­a­tors will also go un­der the ham­mer, with tool kits, air fil­ters, gas­kets and fan belts go­ing on the block.”

The ve­hi­cles to be sold on the day are a 2009 Ford Ranger sin­gle­cab bakkie and a 2008 Opel Corsa 1.4 Club bakkie.

A 2008 Clark five-ton diesel fork­lift that was used to move heavy parts and ma­chin­ery to com­plete projects in the work­shop will also be up for auc­tion.

Olivier says the of­fice fur­ni­ture will con­sist of L-shaped desks, two-door sta­tionery cab­i­nets, board­room ta­bles and swivel of­fice chairs.

“The Lang­ford Power of­fices were ren­o­vated a year ago, and all the of­fice fur­ni­ture and com­put­ers are in very good con­di­tion,” he says.

As so many smaller tools and pieces of equip­ment will also be avail­able, he sug­gests buy­ers should go in on the view­ing day to in­spect the items that will be auc­tioned.

The auc­tion as­sets may be viewed between 9am and 4pm on Mon­day. The auc­tion will start at 11am on Tues­day.
