Until June 13th, high-quality used machines from a Spanish foundry are available for auction on

Reading time: min

The foundry industry faces numerous challenges arising from both economic and regulatory changes. Rising raw material prices and energy costs put companies under significant financial pressure. At the same time, stricter environmental regulations and sustainability requirements necessitate investments in new technologies and production processes. These developments are forcing many traditional foundries to fundamentally rethink their production processes. Additionally, global competitive pressure poses major challenges, particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises. Companies need to increase their efficiency while maintaining the quality of their products to survive in this highly competitive market.

In this context, the sale of used machines offers a unique opportunity for other companies to expand and modernize their production capacities. By acquiring high-quality used machines, significant cost savings can be achieved without compromising on the quality and performance of the machinery. Used machines are often immediately available, eliminating long lead times for new machines and allowing production capacity to be increased more quickly. For companies that need to respond swiftly to market changes or want to expand their capacities in the short term, purchasing used machines is an attractive and economical solution.

The next machinery auction by Surplex offers companies in the metal industry an excellent opportunity to acquire high-quality used machines. Due to the closure of a foundry in Zestoa, Spain, a total of 157 items will be auctioned. The auction ends on June 13, 2024.
