The board of directors of Pro-One Performace has decided to auction off what seems to be their entire modern machine shop equipment. It includes CNC machine centers, CNC turning centers, Vertical mills, Lathes, Horizontal and Vertical bands saws, welding and polishing equipment, etc. The auction will happen July 30 at 10.30 AM at Pro-One Performance Inc. headquarters 2700 Melbourne Avenue, Pomona, CA. It is conducted by Tauber-Arons, an industrial auctioneers & Liquidators. In addition Pro-One is looking for a corporation to lease their 18,500 sq. ft. facility where their machine shop was sitting.
July 15, 12.50 PM EST: Ron at Pro-One sent me this complement of information: ” Pro-One’s not closing down, just scaling back like most big companies are right now. They are just getting out of the machine shop business as it’s not profitable. They have (for years) used other machine shops to handle excess work and will expand the use of local outside shops instead of making everything in-house. They will continue to do prototype work and R and D at the Pro-One facility”.
