Your partnership with Loeb has made our contribution to the Red Cross possible!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Your partnership with Loeb has made our contribution to the Red Cross possible!

During this Holiday season we wanted to take a moment and express our appreciation.

In today's world you can't be successful without others and we wanted to take this time to thank you for your support of us and we hope that you feel we have been equally as supportive to you.

For the last 5 years instead of giving out small trinkets as a sign of our appreciation, we have been making donations to worthy causes to help make our world a better place.

This November, a massive storm system swept through the Midwest, leaving widespread destruction in its wake. Hundreds of thousands were affected by these storms including friends and family of Loeb employees.

We wanted to help with the ongoing support of Southern Illinois this holiday season as they continue to recover and rebuild. By donating to the Red Cross, we are mobilizing relief workers and helping to stock shelters with greatly needed food and supplies.

We are grateful to you, our customers and partners, for your continued business and we hope you appreciate being a part of our support of the Red Cross and their efforts to bring assistance to those deeply affected by the storm.

We Wish You a Wonderful Holiday Season
& a Happy New Year!

Awrey Bakeries Sold as an Ongoing Concern

Facility is set to re-open, saving hundreds of jobs within the Livonia, Michigan community

Auction Previously Scheduled for 2/20-2/21 has been Cancelled

Loeb Winternitz Industrial Auctioneers announces  the On-Going Concern sale of the Awrey Bakeries to a new operating company and will re-open March 2013.  As a result, the 2-day auction planned for February 20th and 21st, will not take place.

Awrey officials notified the auction group of an offer submitted at the eleventh hour to avert the break-up of the company.  The offer was negotiated by Awrey officials, its consultants, attorneys and professionals.  The on-going concern sale is expected to close immediately.

“We are very pleased to have provided Awrey with our assistance during these crucial hours,” said Charles Winternitz, President of Loeb Winternitz.  “It’s not an easy process when you are up against the clock.  They have exceptional equipment and a substantial customer base, and we hope they have an easy transition in re-opening the facility.  This is a great opportunity for the new owners of Awrey Bakeries, the employees of Awrey and the City of Livonia.  We wish everyone much success!”

Working in partnership with Rabin Worldwide and Union Confectionery Machinery, Loeb Winternitz Industrial Auctioneers was able to fully prepare the site for auction while simultaneously, allowing the discussions between Awrey and their potential buyer to continue.
