Surplex Brings High-Performance Foundry Machines to Market as Spanish Plant Shutters Operations

Düsseldorf, Germany – High-quality used machines from a Spanish foundry are up for auction on—one of Europe’s leading industrial auction houses for 25 years that trades worldwide in used machines and factory equipment—until June 13. The foundry industry faces numerous challenges due to economic and regulatory changes. Rising raw material prices and energy costs are putting companies under considerable financial pressure. At the same time, stricter environmental regulations and sustainability requirements necessitate investment in new technologies and production processes. These developments are forcing many traditional foundries to fundamentally rethink their production methods. Additionally, global competitive pressure poses major challenges, particularly for small and medium-sized companies. Companies must increase their efficiency while maintaining product quality 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 purchasing high-quality used machines, considerable cost savings can be achieved without compromising on quality and performance. Second-hand machines are often immediately available, eliminating long delivery times for new machines and allowing for quicker increases in production capacity. Purchasing used machines is an attractive and economical solution, especially for companies that need to react quickly to market changes or expand their capacities at short notice.

Surplex’s upcoming machine auction provides 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.
