SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Soup makers looking for giant stainless steel kettles or canning equipment may be in luck.

The new owners of a shuttered Campbell Soup Co. factory in Sacramento will begin auctioning off equipment from the facility on Tuesday.

The three-day auction is intended to clear space for potential tenants and raise cash. The factory’s inventory is worth an estimated $6 million to $8 million.

Shira Weissman is chief operating officer with Rabin, one of the plant’s owners. She tells the Sacramento Bee (https://bit.ly/NuA51i) the auction will be conducted online and in person.

The factory was in operation for 66 years before it closed in 2013. It lies on a 129-acre site.
