Amsterdam-based Hilco Industrial is an operating company of U.S.-based Hilco Global, announced today the strategic acquisition of all assets at ThyssenKrupp Heavy Plate Rolling Mill facility located in Duisburg-Hüttenheim, Germany.  The assets are now up for sale on the website.

Europe’s second largest steel producer, ThyssenKrupp, shuttered the German facility in September 2021. During its operation, the heavy plate rolling mill facility produced approximately 850,000 metric tons of steel which was used for shipbuilding, offshore and heavy fabrication construction production.  In addition to the rolling mill, other items for sale consists of late model furnaces, hot- and cold-levelers, quenches, inline ultrasonic inspection, shotblasting/priming, and numerous flame and plasma cutting machines.

Robert Bouland, Managing Partner at Hilco Industrial Acquisitions, B.V., stated, “This sale represents an outstanding opportunity for buyers seeking to purchase high-quality, late model machinery used in a combined roughing and finishing mill.” Bouland added, “We anticipate many interested buyers from Europe, Asia, and the Americas and will entertain offers in acquiring the entire facility or for individual assets.”

Hilco Industrial Acquisitions, B.V. continues to expand their acquisition portfolio in the mill equipment space. Most recently, Compania Siderurgica Huachipato S.A. (CAP ACERO) from Chile has engaged the company to sell steel and rolling mill equipment no longer needed in CAP ACERO’s continuing operations. Hilco Industrial Acquisition recently sold the 2 million ton per year Dongkuk Steel Heavy Plate Mill from Korea, as well as the 2015 Danieli Rebar Mill at Posco SS Vina in Vietnam.
