Cost effective solutions employing used packaging
Creative Trading Inc. acquires used packaging
equipment in the best condition.
When we search for used packaging equipment for resale, we set a firm goal
to select packaging machinery that is in the best mechanical condition
possible. Used packaging machinery that we acquire through auctions or
trades are carefully removed from operating installations in most cases,
crated and shipped, and then inspected and repaired if necessary upon
arrival at our facility. All of our used packaging equipment is stored
indoors or under cover at our Carrollton Ohio warehouses, and with over
250,000 square feet of storage, we have the space for a large variety.
used packaging equipment.
Many of the used packaging machines in our inventory are exactly what our
customers are looking for, but in many cases a few minor changes are in
order. Our staff of experienced technicians employ our machine shop and
electronic diagnostic equipment to make any changes required by our
customers. And when a particular machine falls short of acceptable standards
for reliability, it gets a complete overhaul, new wiring, sensors, and
everything down to the paint to make them like new. It is sometimes
difficult to tell one of our rebuilt used packaging machines from new! To
keep costs low, we make sure that the used packaging equipment we acquire is
in exceptional order, which is why we buy these machines after we
inspect them; to be sure that they meet our standards, because we want them
to meet yours!
Technical changes on used packaging equipment is
not a problem.
Difficult packages can delay the installation or expansion of a line beyond
acceptable deadlines. For that reason, we are associated with some of the
brightest packaging equipment engineers in the world! Many of these people
are pioneers in the field. With expertise like this at our disposal, we can
retrofit used packaging machinery with the latest technological innovations
for material and container handling, and deal with difficult packages
quickly and effectively. Sometimes the package itself is not a problem, but
the installation is. We have found ways to improve packaging line layouts,
and optimize space requirements in plants that were thought to be too small
for equipment upgrades or line expansion. Some of our customers who
purchased used packaging equipment from our inventory have had difficulty
fitting it into their line. But when we examined their line layout, we found
solutions requiring only minor changes, and helped them to speed up their
installation, and improve their efficiency.
Odds and ends for used packaging equipment.
Creative Trading Inc. attends used packaging equipment auctions year round, and sometimes wins bids on lots
containing mechanical parts, change parts, fittings, motors, PLC's,
electrical components, you name it. We try to keep what we need to supply
accessories for our used packaging equipment, but over time a surplus builds
up. We will list these components from time to time, so it may be worth your
while to check our web site regularly. You never know what you will find. If
you have components that you might like to sell or trade, just
email us with your descriptions
and requirements, or
