Auction alert: Big haul of surplus stock up for grabs at Gleeson Steel

A sizeable auction – on behalf of Gleeson Steel & Engineering – will take place on Saturday, April 14. It will be conducted by Wilsons Auctions.

Over 200 unreserved lots of surplus stock look set to go under the hammer at the steel company’s site in Co. Tipperary.

Taking place at Gortnahoe, Thurles, from 10:00am, the auction will include plant and machinery, steel fabrication equipment and a plethora of implements – now deemed “surplus to requirements”.

Some of the lots, which are additional to Gleesons’ 200 or so items, are from local vendors.
