An auction is set to be held for the equipment belonging to a UK glass company that has gone into administration.

Family firm HW Glass went into administration last month with more than 50 staff losing their jobs.

Glass processing machinery along with cutting, washing and other industrial equipment from the Wigan based factory is due to be auctioned off.

Iain Gash, manager of Winterhill Largo, the insolvency group running the auction, said: “HW’s collapse was sad news for the company’s workforce and for Wigan itself.

“It is essential now that we achieve the best value for the company’s assets so that creditors can be paid, as fully as possible, what they are owed.”

The auction will take place from 19 to 23 April. Viewings on the 18th can be arranged by contacting +44 (0) 1254 763183.
