Turn your unwanted automation spares into cash

A Blackburn company is offering to turn surplus PLCs, drives and operator panels into cash. Direct-Industrial.com, which says it has more than 30 years experience in repairing and selling new, refurbished and obsolete factory automation equipment, is offering to buy new or used automation parts in any condition, from any manufacturer.

The company says it will pay “competitive prices” and that sellers will receive swift payment, or their goods will be returned to them for free. Users can even trade in old spares for new equipment, such as Siemens Simatic S7 controls.

Direct-Industrial – a trading name of Northern Industrial Electronics – points out that many manufacturers do not keep track of their spare parts, leading to them carrying obsolete stock for machinery which they no longer use. This can be costly in terms of storage, stocktaking and depreciation. Furthermore, the strict laws on the disposal of waste electrical products mean that manufacturers often have to pay for obsolete equipment to be removed and recycled.

You can contact Direct-Industrial via its Web site or by calling 01254 673747 for a free no-obligation quote. The company then provides a valuation by phone or email. If you accept the valuation, it will collect the parts for free and after inspecting them, they will pay “within a few days”.
