April 16, 2018—All equipment and machinery situated at the former General Motors' (GM) Janesville facility will be sold in a four-day online auction beginning on April 23.
The sale is the next phase of the site's decommissioning and redevelopment, which began in 2018 after GM finalized the facility's sale.
Built in 1919, the 4.8 million-square-foot plant was GM's oldest plant in North America prior to its closing in 2010.
The auction is being conducted by Professional Industrial Appraisal LLC (PIA), an Indiana-based appraisal and asset recovery project firm.
Featured equipment includes:
- Day one: 300+ ABB IRB 6400 Robots
- Day two: electrical controls, PLCs and drives, and transformers
- Day three: pumps, motors, spare parts, and tanks
- Day four: plant support, overhead cranes, and shop equipment
