Surplex UK offers a fast route to ‘as good as new’ machinery

Surplex UK offers a fast route to ‘as good as new’ machineryThe consequences of the pandemic have hardly been brought under control as new challenges are already facing the manufacturing industry. Environmental protection and the reduction of CO2 are becoming more and more important, as was recently highlighted at COP26 in Glasgow, and urgent steps must be taken to address these issues in the UK.

One contribution to the conservation of resources can be the purchase of second-hand machinery. Not only does this avoid the carbon footprint of manufacturing new machinery, but it can also bypass long supply chains and reduces costs for buyers.

In order to draw the greatest ecological and economic potential from the purchase or sale of used machinery, companies need a competent partner at their side. Established over 20 years ago and with an annual turnover of around 100 million euros, the industrial auction house Surplex is now a big player in the European used machinery sector.

With the Surplex UK team built around Simon Peacock, Shane Greveson and Alexander Robinson, the UK has a strong regional branch it can call upon. Surplex was founded in Germany in 1999 and has grown from a young, digital start-up to employ over 200 people in 14 European countries. Around 55,000 industrial lots are sold in around 700 auctions a year worldwide.

Competent all-round service

Thanks to consulting, sales, marketing, shipping and customs clearance, all Surplex customers are offered a competent all-round service from a single source which is unique in Europe. Whether machines for metal and wood processing, robots or machines from specialised sectors such as the automotive, food and plastics industries, the company offers a wide range of machines that are being auctioned.

The Surplex UK team says it makes the UK machinery market more transparent and effective. Together the team works to optimise both the buying and selling sides and value personal contact. It offers tailor-made marketing models and as a result can find the right solution for all customers.

The condition of many of the machines that are sold by Surplex are usually ‘as good as new’.

Surplex says that it makes sense to sell surplus machines instead of scrapping them as the lifecycle of the equipment is extended and the environment is protected.
