Hilco will be holding a unique auction of seafood processing equipment on June 18. Adak Seafood, LLC operated the facility located on the island of Adak, the southernmost city in Alaska near the western end of the Aleutian Islands.
The 250,000-square-foot facility was updated in 2005 and was most recently operated by a major seafood producer that processed primarily cod, as well as halibut, sablefish, crab and pollock.
Over 500 lots will be offered, including nine fish sorting lines with conveyors, sorters and 35,000-gallon holding tanks. Nineteen pollock lines also include several heading machines and related equipment.
Multiple crab lines are also available, which include giller stations, cookers, coolers, dip glaze tanks, chillers and an ice flake machine. A cod liver oil processing line, other heading machines, freezers, mixers and generators will also be available.
Lots will be offered in various bulk arrangements, as well as individually. Buyers will be offered the opportunity to purchase all assets as a whole, complete lines, or individual pieces of machinery and equipment.
The location of this plant makes it very accessible to the many fishermen who operate in this abundant environment. The area is one of the largest contributors to the world’s supply of Bering Sea crab and Pollock. It has been made famous by the Discovery Channel reality show Deadliest Catch which depicts the events aboard fishing vessels in the Bering Sea during crab fishing season. Timely delivery of their catches to processing facilities such as this one is essential to the success of local fishermen.
The 2013 Vulkan Cup Charity Golf Event took place at the Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa in Birmingham, Alabama April 11-13. Each spring, Hilco Industrial invites machinery dealers and partners to take part in this 3-day event, which includes golf on Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail courses, a charity fundraising event, outings, dinners, awards and more. Seventy-two golfers participated in this year’s event which generated over $30,000 for selected charities, the Purple Promise Foundation and Freedom Service Dogs of America. In its history, the Vulkan Cup has raised a total of over $170,000 for multiple charities. Hilco is proud to have sponsored this event for the past 7 years of its 13-year history, and we are grateful to all of our sponsors and participants for making it another success!

Sparrows Point is known as one of the largest steel making facilities in North America, so it’s not a surprise that this week’s two-day webcast auction includes huge capacity steel handling equipment like Paling transporters and Kress slab carriers. But what might come as a surprise is the large number of hand and power tools available that can be used in any small shop, or even at home.
Doing any remodeling? Reciprocating saws are invaluable for getting down to those studs. Cut intricate wood shapes with one of many band saws for sale.
Brand new miter saws, nailers, staplers, impact tools, air tools and more are still in the box, with their original accessories and power supplies, awaiting a bargain buyer.
Woodworkers will find jointers, planers, routers and more to add to their shops.
Construction equipment runs the gamut from wheel loaders to angle grinders and welders. Power screwdrivers and drills, including brand new DeWalts, are useful for a wide variety of projects.
And it’s not just the handyman that will find deals at Sparrows Point. Need a snow blower to keep that driveway or parking lot accessible this winter? Looking for a golf cart or personal vehicle to get around a large property? Sparrows Point has several.
Buyers don’t need to be steel manufacturers to take advantage of this historic auction. Hundreds of lots of general use equipment will be sold live throughout the day both Wednesday and Thursday at the webcast auction, as well as during the online auction that runs through next Tuesday.
