who we are
We are a young, dynamic, eight-person team based in Hamburg. We have made it our goal to give functional industrial goods, some of which are new, used or defective, a “second life” by reintroducing them into the market cycle.
We have noticed that the industry is wasteful in repairing production facilities. Often these systems are renewed or completely replaced with newer models when a product or series is changed. The previously used systems and components can then no longer be used by the company and are therefore mostly released for scrapping.
Large companies also have guidelines and regulations that state how long spare parts for components can be stored. If these cycles are exceeded, they are also released for disposal. We realised that the European industrial culture is very wasteful in regards of industrial goods. The Products are often sorted out, caused by a lack of storrage space and the linked costs.
Unfortunately, scrapping is usually a quick and easy solution.
At this point we want to make an appearance and protect products that have not yet been used, are functional or have to be repaired from senseless scrapping. The concept of sustainability is extremely important to us: We create new benefits for the products, give them a “second life”, and thus avoid high amounts of energy that would result from the time-consuming recycling of electrical scrap. In addition, the products sought instead of the buyers do not have to be produced again, which immediately saves raw materials and energy.
The repair and overhaul of countless industrial goods prevents the complete replacement of the machine or subsystem, which is often associated with higher costs and short life. In addition, permanent production downtimes can be avoided, which could result from a more expensive and time-consuming acquisition of a new machine due to a defective component.
We acquire industrial goods and components of all kinds that have not yet been used, are functional or need to be repaired. This includes remaining stocks, excess stocks or obsolete spare parts stocks. For example, if you don’t have space for new products, we can help you create space for them.
We have the means and the space to offer your company quick and efficient solutions. We are interested in vacuum pumps, electric and servo motors, gears and frequency converters. If we have piqued your interest, there is only one thing left to do for you: Send us an inventory list with the products you are offering. In the next step, we will take care of the quick processing and transport so that you have space in your warehouse again.
We offer industrial goods and components through our own online shop, some of which come from spare parts stores and used production systems. After we receive these products, we clean and test them, if possible, in order to protect the items from useless scrapping. The concept of sustainability is extremely important to us: We create new benefits for the products, give them a “second life”. We market and sell our articles through our newly designed online shop.
