If you go to groupesis dot ca , and under "bien à vendre" you will find a pdf with all the info to bid on all of sisca's and corlab's equipment. Though i think Evolution Group is going to buy back everything and us suppliers are going to lose 2 months of sales...

We acknowledge the unfortunate turn of events with two of our brands; Sisca and Corlab. Unaffected are our other Evolution Group brands, including Trico. Each of the brands operate independent of each other with completely different management and financial infrastructures. We appreciate the continued support of staff, customers and suppliers.
