SAINT LOUIS, Mo.—Need an injection molding machine?

How about 17 of them?

Energizer Holdings, Inc., may be able to help, as the battery and flashlight maker plans to auction off equipment from its former Vermont plant that was closed down in September.

According to the firm, it has hired Schneider Industries to run the auction that will see Energizer sell off more than 1,100 pieces of equipment for metal working, packaging, plastic injection molding and battery production Dec. 5 at the site of its former plant in St. Albans, Vt., about 100 kilometres southeast of Montreal.


The plant closure was part of global restructuring that saw the firm shutter other plants in Missouri and Malaysia.

Among the lots to cross the auction block will be 17 Van Dorn plastic injection molding machines, according to Energizer.

Buyers will be able to purchase items online and onsite, with an inspection taking place the day before the sale, Dec. 4 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

To find out more about the sale log on to the Schneider website or call 314-863-7711.
