Robson Kay provides asset realisation services to insolvency practitioners, government departments, financial institutions and corporate bodies. Robson Kay’s primary focus is insolvency and corporate recovery. Robson Kay were established in 1996, operating from a site in Old Trafford, providing valuation and asset realisation services to insolvency practitioners, government departments, Asset Backed Lenders and corporate bodies. Robson Kay’s primary focus is insolvency and corporate recovery, which accounts for approximately 90% of their instructions. Having experienced rapid year on year growth, Robson Kay moved into their new state of the art auction complex in October 2001, in order to accommodate their expansion.
Although North West based, we are regularly instructed on cases throughout the UK and occasionally further afield. Properties tend to be sold by private treaty, NOT auction. Some non-property assets are sold by private treaty and informal or formal tender, however the majority of assets are sold by auction.
Auctions are typically held on a Tuesday, with approximately two to three sales taking places in a typical month. We also sometimes sell assets in-situ at the former premises of the insolvent company, again sometimes through a live rostrum sale at the premises and sometimes via on-line bidding.
The variety of assets is limitless, below are examples of some of the many categories of assets we have sold: Cars, Commercial vehicles, Clothing, Electrical goods, White goods, Tradestocks, Textiles, Office furniture, Business equipment, Woodworking Machinery, Metalworking Machinery, Injection Moulding Plant, Food Processing Plants, Iron & Brass Foundries, Construction Plant, Bus & Coach Operators, Boat & Shipping Companies, Racking, Commercial & Domestic Property, Chemicals, Materials handling equipment, including fork-lift trucks, Livestock, Foodstuffs, Intellectual Property Rights, Trading names, Web addresses, And all manner of other assets.
