LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2013
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the successful large-lot
sale of the majority of the former assets of one of North America's biggest
auto parts suppliers — Fenco (Fenwick Automotive Products Ltd., Introcan and
related entities) — Tiger Group's Remarketing Services Division is liquidating
the bankrupt companies' remaining warehouse and distribution center equipment
in an online auction that closes next week.
Bidding is now underway on the former assets of the companies at
www.SoldTiger.com and will close in rapid succession, live auction style, on
October 17 at 10:30 a.m. The assets will be available for inspection at two
locations on October 16: 4741 Durfee Ave, Pico Rivera, Calif., from 10:00 a.m.
to 4:00 p.m. PT; and at 1411 Third Ave., Lock Haven, Penn., from 10:00 a.m. to
4:00 p.m. ET.
During the initial court-supervised sealed-bid auction of former Fenco assets
that closed on Aug. 30 and September 6, Tiger sold full product lines,
business units and the majority of equipment – including lift trucks and
pallet racks – to two strategic buyers: automotive aftermarket companies
Cardone Industries and Triple Diamond Imports. Cardone also took over the
lease of Fenco's 600,000-sq.-ft. facility in Lock Haven, Penn.
"Any company with warehousing or distribution operations will be interested in
the equipment groupings that are available in Pennsylvania and California,"
said Andy Babcock, Tiger Group's Director of Inventory Strategies.
The online offering includes 3,000-lb. capacity battery- and manually-operated
scissor-lift pallet jacks, H-class thermal transfer barcode label printers,
laser printers, RFID hand-held scanners, CV joint grinders, calibration
tables, and other machinery and equipment.
Fenco was a major supplier to companies like AutoZone, GM and NAPA Auto Parts,
with annual revenues of approximately $200 million. On June 10, 2013, Fenwick,
Introcan and related entities filed for Chapter 7 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
in Wilmington, Del. The Torrance, Calif.-based companies had sold new and
remanufactured parts under private-label and the Fenco and DynaPak brand names
for passenger vehicles and trucks sold across the globe. Parts sold by the
companies included steering components, brake calipers, master cylinders, hub
assemblies, clutches and hydraulics.
