The construction departments of Hitachi Construction Machinery in Amsterdam (for the manufacture of large cranes, bulldozers and excavators) and Oosterhout (for the manufacture of mini diggers and other machinery) will cease production on July 1. As a result, the machine inventory for both sites is being auctioned online on the Troostwijk Auctions platform. The first auction is currently open for bidding. The auction closes at 2:00 pm on Monday July 12, 2021.

Ultra modern spray shop
The Hitachi location in Oosterhout – where the mini diggers and other machines are manufactured – will be completely discontinued. This also means that the state-of-the-art spray paint shop, where the signature orange and black of the Hitachi brand is applied, will be sold.
The spray shop opened in 2012 and was expanded until 2019 with the latest equipment to ensure the most automated process possible. The original investment value of the spray shop amounts to over €7,000,000.
The paint shop is now for sale through a private sale process. The buyer has the option of entering into a lease or purchase contract to take over the facility (including the building) on the site. It stands on a plot of 2102 m2. The paint shop is in a building of 1300 m2.
The auction of the entire machine inventory and the Hitachi spray shop is described by the auctioneer as an excellent opportunity for construction companies and for companies thinking of setting up their own spray paint department. “These unique machines for processing heavy materials can be reused by numerous construction companies. The sale of the paint shop is also a unique opportunity to take over a spray shop, including all permits and personnel on site.”
