InteSys Technologies Inc. of Gilbert, Ariz., will sell at auction all the equipment in its recently acquired plant in Dayton, Nev. It then will sell the 110,000-square-foot facility, located on 15 acres in a business park there. Nicholas Smeed, InteSys vice president of human resources and business development, said any equipment the company cannot use in its other facilities in Gilbert, Costa Mesa, Calif., or Mexico will be auctioned off at the Aug. 28 sale.
InteSys acquired the building when it purchased Cimco Inc.'s custom injection molding operations from M.A. Hanna Co. in June.
InteSys determined it was too difficult to serve customers from Dayton, which is about 50 miles south of Reno and 20 miles east of Carson City. The company also had problems hiring and retaining a work force, given the plant's distance from major population centers, Smeed said. InteSys drew its staff mainly from a temporary employment agency.
Auctioneers Thomas Industries Inc. of Guilford, Conn., will conduct the auction, which will consist of 21 injection molding machines, including a 1972 HPM machine with 700 tons of clamping force, a variety of Van Dorn 1980s models, and several newer-model presses from Cincinnati Milacron, including a 1992 press with 725 tons of clamping force.
