2-Day Auction Event: Metalworking and Test Equipment from Virgin Orbit, LLC & Virgin Orbit Holdings

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., June 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Integra Asset Solutions, Perfection Global, and Liquidity Services, are pleased to announce a 2-day auction event for the sale of late-model metalworking, test and measurement, and IT equipment formerly owned by Virgin Orbit, LLC & Virgin Orbit Holdings, Inc., a satellite launch service provider. Following a mission failure in January, Virgin Orbit ceased its operations and ultimately filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April. Subsequently, the company’s assets were sold through the bankruptcy process and among the bidders, including several end-to-end aerospace companies, Integra Asset Solutions, Perfection Global, and Liquidity Services were awarded the machinery and equipment at the Virgin Orbit payload processing facility in Long Beach, California.

Integra Asset Solutions, Perfection Global, and Liquidity Services will be selling all the assets at this location during a 2-day auction event, scheduled for June 27 and 28 at 9:00am Pacific Time. These sales will offer an impressive selection of machinery and equipment used in the manufacturing of rocket delivery systems and components. The sales will include over 900 items and will feature an ISO 8 cleanroom, CNC machine tools, tube and metal fabricating, welding equipment, test and inspection, assembly, material handling, facility support and more. Day 1 and Day 2 catalogs of all available assets are available online.

“We are excited to have secured this immaculate mix of assets and look forward to the upcoming 2-day auction event. This sale represents a unique opportunity for industry professionals, startups, and established companies in the aerospace and metalworking industries to enhance their operations and expand their capabilities,” said John Magnuson, President and Managing Director, Integra Asset Solutions. “Aerospace companies will be interested in the ISO 8 cleanroom, the rocket sled and assembly machines, as well as the test equipment. Further, any manufacturing company would be thrilled to buy the general-purpose metalworking and welding equipment, much of which is in “like new” condition and will undoubtedly contribute to the growth and innovation of the winning bidders.”
