SPRING MILL, Pa.—The assets of Gettig Technologies Inc. and its associated companies, including Stelrema Corp., will be sold at auction as part of a U.S. Bankruptcy Court Chapter 7 liquidation.
Gettig, formed in 1952, had the ability to do everything from design to prototyping, tooling, molding, assembly and packaging. Its companies included Stelrema, which made injection molded elastomer and plastics products, as well as Gettig Engineering & Manufacturing, Gettig Pharmaceutical Instrument, Beacon Tool Corp., and GPI Aviation Inc.
Spring Mill-based Gettig had stressed its ability to go from "a sketch on a napkin" to mass production. The company closed at the end of 2012. It cited an inability to maintain large capital investments in a receding economy.
The Branford Group L.L.C. and Hurley Auctions of Greencastle, Pa., will conduct two online auctions. Equipment slated for sale in Knox and Angola, Ind., include eight rubber molding machines, 18 injection molding machines, seven vertical shuttle and insert molding machines.
