Miamisburg printer to have equipment auctioned off

A Miamisburg printer appears to have closed, and its assets and real estate property are scheduled to be auctioned off in July.

The Branford Group, an industrial auction company, with Joseph Finn Co & North East Printing Machinery, will conduct an online auction for the assets formerly owned by Hooven-Dayton Corp., 511 Byers Road.

The auction  will happen 10 a.m. July 11. There will be a single-day preview and inspection open to the public 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 10.

Hooven- Dayton Corp was founded in 1935 and was a narrow web converter and specialty printer offering digital and flexographic label printing, coupons and packaging. It served Fortune 500 companies in the consumer, food and beverage, industrial, automotive and state lottery markets.

Hooven-Dayton announced in 2011 that it would consolidate sites in Vandalia and Huber Heights into a single Miamisburg location, the former Kurz Kasch building, a facility that had offered than 100,000 square feet.

Christopher Che, Hooven-Dayton chief executive, said at the time the new facility would let the company “keep all our current staff and add more equipment and people without constraints.”
