Engel sets up used machinery sub

Injection moulding machine manufacturer and systems solutions provider Engel, headquartered in Schwertberg, Austria, has extended its portfolio to include pre-owned machines, under Engel Used Machinery.

Besides injection moulding machines, the new company also buys back used robots from the Engel series, refurbishes the products and puts them back on the market for sale.

"In some cases, a second-hand production cell is the only option. We want to offer our customers a high-quality solution for this requirement, too, with Engel's customary consulting expertise and outstanding service", says Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group, explaining this strategic decision. The repurchased injection moulding machines and robots are reconditioned in-house.

The firm has created the capacities required for this at its production plants in Austria and the Czech Republic.

The newly founded company is headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic.

"Eastern Europe is the largest and fastest growing market for pre-owned injection moulding machines,” says Leopold Praher, General Manager of Engel Used Machinery.
