Salem adds online used machinery marketplace
June 12, 2023 By Salem Fabrication Technologies Group
Salem Fabrication Technologies Group is expanding its glass fabrication offerings with the acquisition of Glass Machinery Locator, a robust used equipment marketplace. Glass Machinery Locator will become the used equipment division of Salem Fabrication Technologies Group, joining the company’s existing divisions Salem Fabrication Supplies, HHH Equipment Resources and Salem FTG Capital. The re-branded and re-designed Glass Machinery Locator website will allow North American fabricators to easily buy or sell used tempering furnaces and fabrication equipment.
Used equipment purchases will be backed by 24/7, U.S.-based technical expertise from HHH Equipment Resources and a full line of tooling and supplies from Salem Fabrication Supplies to complete all fabricator requirements. The team has over 100 combined years of experience providing trustworthy products and services for fabricators. In 2021, Salem launched Salem FTG Capital to provide in-house financing to customers.
“We’re providing an unmatched experience for pre-owned glass equipment purchases with Glass Machinery Locator,” said Mike Willard, CEO of Salem Fabrication Technologies Group. “This acquisition will allow us to better serve customers by adding pre-owned equipment to our existing services portfolio of new glass fabrication machinery, tooling solutions and financing.”
Glass Machinery Locator will serve as a liaison between buyers and sellers throughout a transaction process. Existing staff at divisions Salem Fabrication Supplies and HHH Equipment Resources will assist with developing pricing, identifying machine specs, deal communications, marketing efforts, shipping logistics, paperwork requirements and more.
The acquisition, effective immediately, will enable Salem Fabrication Technologies Group to maintain its intimate knowledge of the glass industry.
