FAQs

How does shipping work?2024-02-13T05:41:39+00:00

We offer several options for shipping, including internationally. Should the customer choose, they can arrange their own shipping.

What about used equipment? Where do you get it?2024-02-13T05:41:25+00:00

About 98% of our used equipment comes from plant-type liquidations in which we are required to not sell the systems or plants as a whole back into the marketplace. Our inventories come from those pieces that didn’t sell at the site but still have great value.

What are the benefits for companies buying used plants?2024-02-13T05:41:10+00:00

Buying a complete plant for relocation will save a company about 70% of the new equipment and engineering cost and 50% of the project lead time. Most of our customers would not be able to justify the cost of a new plant or an expansion. They also might not have the time to wait for construction in either scenario. Our value proposition is that we provide opportunities and solutions to our buyers.
