Toronto Star auction set for Sept.20
TORONTO—The Toronto Star was first published in 1892 as a Canadian broadsheet daily newspaper. It produced a Sunday edition which helped it claim the highest circulation in Canada. Torstar Corp. has owned the paper since 1977.

The Press Centre in Vaughan opened in November of 1992. The presses at the Press Centre could achieve colour reproduction that was showcased in a special Preview Section of the publication. They were always pushing the envelope in production and independantly could deal with any problems, as they had a complete workshop in house.

The auction at the Toronto Star’s Vaughan Press Center, where Canada’s largest newspaper was printed, is in my books the “sale of the year.”

TCL Asset Group Inc., in conjunction with Maynards, and BidItUp are handling this enormous sale. TCL Asset Group Inc., specializes in the following industries: plastics, paper and printing, construction and mining, medical and dental, chemical processing, metal working, food and beverage, woodworking, transportation, steel and foundry, pharmaceutical, automotive, rolling stock, textile and electronics..

Bidders are welcome to preview in person, at One Century Place, Vaughan, Ontario on Monday, September 19 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
On Tuesday, September 20, TCL Asset Group will host a live auction on site at the 600,000 sq.ft. plant featuring (6) Man Roland newsprint presses, complete plate and mail rooms,  mobile equipment, huge spare parts inventories, complete maintenance facilities, large quantities of electrical equipment, including sub stations, transformers and teck cable, as well as offices.

On Wednesday, September 21 There will be a timed online auction in order  to sell off all the general stock.

This is a moment in history so be there to experience it.
