Oscar Mayer equipment from Wisconsin facility up for sale
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - More than 2,000 pieces of equipment from the shuttered Oscar Mayer plant in Wisconsin are up for auction.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that the equipment is now available for purchase at the Madison plant and online.
Reich Brothers Holdings and Rabin Worldwide are two companies that buy shuttered factories and sell the assets. They're hosting the three-day sale that includes grinders, packaging equipment, printing machines and refrigeration units.
Parent company Kraft Heinz closed the Madison facility in June as part of a corporate restructuring that resulted from the 2015 merger of Kraft Foods Group and H.J. Heinz Co. About a third of the facility's equipment was taken to other Kraft Heinz factories. Reich and Rabin purchased the remaining equipment in October.
