Gordon Brothers Partners with Maynards Europe to Sell AURORA Lichtwerke’s Lamp Development & Manufacturing Plant Assets

Gordon Brothers, the global asset experts, is partnering with Maynards Europe to sell by online auction AURORA Lichtwerke’s lamp development and manufacturing plant assets.

The two-day auction on November 29-30 for more than 2,000 lots in Eichstätt, Germany includes 19 LED, halogen and discharge lamp production assembly lines, a SMD factory configured for LED production, and laboratory, quality assurance, plant support and maintenance equipment.

AURORA Lichtwerke had a production capacity of more than 350 million lamps per annum. The site was previously a LEDVANCE production plant and prior to that a spin off from OSRAM that was part of Siemens AG.

“It is rare for the production lines of halogen signal and studio lights for airfield, traffic, train and medical applications to come to market,” said Dr. Andreas Kemper, Managing Director at Gordon Brothers. “With the complete closure of the plant these assets are in high demand, and we are seeing significant global interest from established industry manufacturers.”

“We’re excited to auction the assets from AURORA Lichtwerke, which was once the world’s largest lamp manufacturing site,” said Daniel Kroeger, Managing Director at Maynards Europe. “This is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs and large-scale manufacturers to expand their capacity and product range.”
