Following the postponement of the auction to consider offers for the whole business, the Administrators, O'Brien Palmer, were unable to rescue the company by a sale of the business as going concern and the assets will be sold by online auction, run by Neil Schiller's Liquid Asset Management.

The postponed Craftech auction is now back on, with a week extension on the closing date to noon on Wednesday September 23rd. As a gesture of goodwill, the Buyer's Premium, typically +15-20% on top of final bid price for equipment auctions, is only 10%.
