Assets from former ECS Refining plant in California up for bid

Buyers can acquire processing equipment from ECS’ former Stockton, California, plant turnkey or piecemeal.

Tiger Group, headquartered in New York, in partnership with Aaron Equipment, Rosen Systems and Perry Videx, says it is accepting bids for ECS Refining’s former recycling plant on South Sinclair Avenue in Stockton, California.

ECS filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2018 and shortly thereafter closed three plants across the country. Its former Stockton facility—which includes processing lines for e-scrap, TVs, glass and wood, as well as forklifts, office furniture and other assets—is available for immediate turnkey or piecemeal purchase. In addition, the real estate, a 262,000-square-foot building on 37 acres, is available for lease or purchase.

“After our group’s successful turnkey sale last year of the ECS facility in Mesquite, Texas, this will be the final ECS Refining offering,” says John Coelho, senior director at Tiger Group. “The Stockton plant was ECS’ most significant operation. For companies in the recycling industry, this is a great opportunity to immediately acquire high-capacity, late-model assets to add or enhance capacity.”

Manufactured by companies such as Titech (now Tomra), SSI Shredding Systems, Huron Valley Steel Corp. and West Salem Machinery, the equipment includes an electronic scrap shredding/separation line; a cathode ray tube monitor and projection TV separation and recycling line; and a wood pallet shredding and chipping line. All three lines are still installed as operated. Also available for immediate purchase are several forklifts, electric walk/ride low-lift pallet trucks and other material-handling equipment, along with office furniture and equipment.

David Goodman, executive vice president at Perry Videx, says, “Regardless of material—electronic waste, glass/CRT or wood—all three available lines are of the latest technology. This equipment has been well-maintained and is currently available to operate in place or be moved to an alternative site.”
