An auction of assets left from a failed artificial sweetener factory in Moberly is drawing curious onlookers but few big buyers.

The auction of Mamtek U.S. property drew more than 20 prospective bidders Wednesday morning to a Moberly hotel ballroom, joined by online participants.

Buyers sought deals on individual pieces of equipment owned by Mamtek, but no one submitted a bid for the company's real estate or its intellectual property.
