Invitation to Submit Offers: Kettle-Fried Potato Chip Production Plant

Park Village Auctions is inviting offers on machinery, plant, and equipment stemming from a Benrose-based kettle-fried potato chip producer currently in business rescue.

The sale falls under the auspices of PVA’s business rescue division, which specialises in facilitating sales that will help businesses experiencing difficulties raise liquid capital. PVA’s Werner Burger says that most companies that fall under this banner are simply in need of a capital injection to continue operating and therefore represent an excellent opportunity for investors.

Plant and equipment to be sold include:

  • A pellet frying production line,
  • A wet end process area,
  • Various industrial kettle fryers,
  • A Chipnik pellet line,
  • An oil-receiving area, and
  • A packing area.

Assets under the banner of kettle fryers comprise a slicer rebuild station, an S-type incline conveyor, vibratory hoppers that feed to bucket elevators, high-temperature modular belt conveyors, Urschel slicers and slicer heads, Telescopic in-feed conveyors, fryer oil pumps, Thermocouples, a Singulator, kettle fryers, high-temperature chimney stacks, fryer platforms, 5-ton used oil tanks, vibratory accumulation hoppers, an oil filtration system and seasoning systems (automated with “load cell”).

Burger says that viewing is essential. Appointments for viewing on the 17th and 18th of May between 9 am and 4 pm can be made with Morné Parkinson on 082-778-6003. The viewing will take place on-site at 172 Main Reef Road, Corner DanielRoad, Elcedes, Benrose, Johannesburg.
