ORISKANY, N.Y. (WKTV) - More than four thousand lots of bus manufacturing and assembly equipment is set to be auctioned off from Daimler Buses in Oriskany due to the plant's closing.
In Spring 2012, hundreds of employees were told the plant was closing and that they would lose their jobs within the year. In December, all remaining production workers were laid off.
A two-day live and webcast auction starts at 6 a.m. Pacific Time (9 a.m. Eastern) on March 5.
According to the auction website, equipment up for grabs includes a refueling system, three large capacity drive-thru paint and finishing booths, free standing crane systems, fabrication equipment, material handling and a large amount of plant support equipment.
