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.

Who buys from you?2024-02-13T05:40:54+00:00

Mostly small and midsize companies that are entrepreneurial in nature. These companies understand our value proposition.

How have you been so successful for so long?2024-02-13T05:40:40+00:00

We provide a high level of service to our customers, helping them solve their problems and attain their growth and profit goals.

How many customers do you have?2024-02-26T07:42:34+00:00

IPP has been delivering solutions to clients for more than 46 years, building a loyal base of more than 160,000 customers worldwide.

Where are your plant sites?2024-06-08T15:15:17+00:00

Our 18 plant sites are all over the world.
