Thiele Mfg Selling Equipment at Auction

After 108 years in business, bankrupt truck body and trailer maker Thiele Manufacturing will have real estate, machine tools and other equipment sold at a lender-ordered auction on Nov. 30 at 11 a.m. on-site at 111 Spruce St., Windber, PA.

The property includes 191,411 sq. ft. on 19 acres that will sell as one tract. The equipment will sell in piecemeal to the highest bidder. Potential buyers are encouraged to view the lots prior to auction.

Maas Companies, Inc., a Rochester, MN-based auction company that specializes in real estate, industrial plants, equipment and special assets, will conduct the auction. Interested parties can bid online or on-site.
The company filed for bankruptcy protection in 2008, and ultimately eliminated more than 100 jobs. A court-appointed trustee shut the company down earlier this year.
