Once one of the largest suppliers of rental equipment to concert promoters, theatre operators, and various production industry clients in Canada, Ashen White Audio Visual, based in Mississauga, Ontario has decided to close its doors after the Covid-19 pandemic devastated its business and the entire industry.
The owners were faced with a tough decision to either sell off what they spent the last three decades building or take on tremendous debt and risk trying to continue to ride out the storm.
The company is set to auction off all of its equipment to the highest bidders from March 2 to 5 (2021). The auction sale is being conducted by Danbury Global and will feature more than 2,000 lots of late model new and used professional audio and video equipment as well as office furniture, trucks, and forklifts.
Auction highlights include eight Robert Juliat Merlin & Super Korrigan followspots, more than 120 Clay Paky and Martin moving light fixtures, EAW and Kling & Freitag line array systems, in addition to video and small audio packages. All of the company vehicles up for auction were purchased new from 2016 to 2018.
The auction is taking place online only and opens for bidding on Tuesday February 23. All of the items are located in Mississauga and bidding is open to the general public. Everyone is welcome to bid provided that they pre-register through Danbury Global.
