Peavey Electronics Ltd has appointed Bedford-based auctioneer W&H Peacock to oversee the sale of all of the material assets from its Corby HQ following the restructuring of the business (as reported previously in PSNEurope).

Versalift amplifier/speaker lifts are also being disposed of.

In addition, office furniture and other factory equipment is up for auction, including “Racking, Forklifts and Factory Handling Equipment; Woodworking and other Machinery & Equipment; Shipping Containers, Building & Mezzanine Floors; Office, Reception, Meeting Room Furniture & Equipment; Parts and Stock”.

Viewing of the lots is possible on Saturday 22 and Monday 24 November from 9pm-5pm at the old factory building in Great Folds Road, Oakley Hay, Corby, Northants NN18 9ET.

Online bidding will cease at 11am (subject to the “10-minute rule”) on 25 November 2014.
