FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Houston, TX, June 14, 2022 – With the recent closure of Dril-Quip, Inc.’s Forging, conventional machining, and metallurgical lab, all of the related equipment will be sold at auction on Tuesday, June 28, 2022.
Auctioneer Jean Harris, Jr. (TX License # 18210) of Harris Auctions, a recognized name in the U.S. industry and beyond, will be overseeing the live webcast and online machine equipment auctions.
Dril-Quip, Inc. (DRQ) continues to thrive in their role as a leading oilfield services company. However, due to the ever-changing and evolving oil and gas market, they have recognized the forge facility was no longer needed as a core of their manufacturing model going forward. Liquidating the entirety of this specific location is in their best interest.
All assets are currently located in Northwest Houston where private inspections are available by appointment and a general inspection is set for June 27 at the facility. You can call 713-462-5800 for details, as well as make pre-auction offers that will be considered for major assets.
From forging presses and manipulators to ring rolling machines, car bottom and box type furnaces, engine lathes and mills, vertical turret lathes and boring mills, CNC machines, and metallurgical inspection – plus over 1 million lbs. of open die tooling – a massive selection will be available.
“We’re honored to hold an auction like this that offers some of the rarest and highest quality equipment to see the open market in decades,” says Jean Harris, President of Harris Auctions.
Since 1981, Dril-Quip has developed a reputation for innovation and quality. That mentality permeated into its manufacturing base and is demonstrated throughout the assets in the Forge facility.
“This is truly a unique opportunity for our friends and clients around the world,” Harris added. “Plant managers and equipment buyers should take note. This auction of Dril-Quip’s exceptional machinery is going to provide companies with an entire catalog to choose from.”
