Auction Alerts

Printer & Graphics Division

Thomas Industries and Advanced Print Technologies have grown to become the largest auction firm in North America dedicated to the printing & graphics industry.  On an annual basis, Thomas Industries conducts over 45% of the major plant closure printing auctions in North America.

Our Printing & Graphics Division has a  staff of 19 personnel that maintain an exceptionally high level of industry expertise.  We have owned, operated and managed printing companies, including the acquisitions and running of over 40 companies.

This level of involvement in the industry sets us apart from our competitors as we have an understanding not only on the selling side but from the ownership perspective as well. Additionally, our personnel have trained and worked for Harris, Heidelberg, Mitsubishi, Ryobi, and Komori, and we maintain full millwright capabilities with rebuilding and warehousing facilities.

Over 60% of our press sales are outside of North America to well established direct relationships with printers in China, India, Pakistan and South American countries. 

As a result of the qualifications of our staff, the unique marketing experience from having conducted over 600 plant closure auctions of printing companies and being engaged for over a 1,000 certified appraisals, we continue to maintain the number one spot in the industry as the largest reseller of Printing & Graphics equipment in North America operating on an international basis.
