Success with surface mount equipment auction

GoIndustry Dovebid proved the strength of their marketing and online auction tool in December 2009, when they held a multiple country auction of surplus surface mount tools and feeders.

The sale was unique in that the valuable assets identified as surplus to requirements by a leading electronics assembly contractor, Enics, were sold simultaneously in Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Switzerland. 'The number of bidders participating in the auction, the strength of bidding, and the good prices we were achieving on sale day indicate that the used surface mount equipment market appears to have strongly improved from 2008 prices'

GoIndustry Dovebid sold the used surface mount tools to buyers from 24 countries, which included end-user buyers from China, India, Finland, Poland and Russia. The sale was particularly helpful to the seller because it established competitive bidding on a very large quantity of feeders. This meant the feeders sold for the best market rates rather than be sold in bulk at a discount to trade buyers.
