C6 Solutions Ltd was formed in 2004 following a management buyout of the former Hickson & Welsh facility at Castleford, West Yorkshire. C6 Solutions manufactured crop chemicals for the agriculture industry, intermediate chemicals for the pharmaceutical industry and specialty chemicals.
As part of the buyout 3DI were instructed to provide a valuation of the facility for a large lending institution. In 2005 C6 Solutions went into administration. 3DI were subsequently instructed to act as exclusive sales agents to dispose of the process equipment and plants residing at the facility. Over the next 18 months 3DI conducted a Private Treaty Sale of the facility which resulted in the sale of a number of individual items of equipment and complete plants.
