Tiger, Others to Conduct ClearEdge Assets Sale
Tiger Group’s Remarketing Services Division, Hackman Capital and CA Global Partners will conduct a live webcast auction September 9 at 10:30 a.m. (PT) for laboratory, testing, machine shop and warehouse support equipment; inventory and parts; and other assets from a Hillsboro building formerly operated by fuel cell manufacturer ClearEdge Power.
The office research and development warehouse facility was shuttered following the July 2014 acquisition of ClearEdge by Korea-based Doosan, which subsequently launched the Connecticut-headquartered Doosan Fuel Cell America. ClearEdge filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in May 2014.
Bidding in the online-only sale of the facility’s assets, which also includes office furnishings, networking, computer, and audiovisual equipment, will open September 2 at www.SoldTiger.com, and close in rapid succession, live auction style, on September 9 at 10:30 a.m. (PT). The assets will be available for inspection at the company’s facility located at 7205 NW Evergreen Parkway, Suite 100, in Hillsboro on September 8, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (PT).
“Doosan’s desire to monetize the Hillsboro assets acquired as a result of the company’s purchase of ClearEdge provides a tremendous opportunity for regional businesses,” said Jeff Tanenbaum, president of Tiger Remarketing Services. “The parts and components inventory, as well as the diverse selection of machinery, warehouse equipment, office technology and furnishings, test equipment and related items are ideal for a broad range of businesses. Our group was able to dispatch teams immediately and provide a guaranteed financial return and completion of the project within Doosan’s aggressive timeline.”

Available items include large quantities of new pumps, liquid drainers, inverters chargers, flow meters, power supplies, controllers, isothermal connectors, thermocouple input modules, and other electronics, as well as stainless steel and copper Swagelok® fittings, valves, pipe and tube.
“The parts and supplies inventory represents a significant offering of desirable consumables for fuel cell manufacturers and other industries,” said Tanenbaum.
