Asset disposals

Published:  26 February, 2014

RILEY SURFACE WORLD has announced site clearances of robotic welding and coating plant and equipment from two former GKN automotive production facilities in the UK.

The first sale is from GKN Structures in Telford. Following the completion of a major project, the company has available a quantity of surplus ABB robotic welding equipment used in the production of vehicle chassis. The robots can be re-configuredfor many other industrial applications.

The second clearance concerns the former GKN Driveline site in Aldridge. It originally housed a large e-coating plant, which has now been de-commissioned. This has resulted in a quantity of ancillary equipment becoming available, including a Plascoat Systems pre-treatment and coating line, a Pollution Control Products burn-off oven, boiler house installation and a selection of storage tanks and cooling towers.
