EQUIPNET, INC. ANNOUNCES ITS EXPANSION INTO COLOMBIA WITH A NEW LOCAL OFFICE
As part of its 15th anniversary, EquipNet has expanded its Latin American presence by opening a new full service office in Colombia.
EquipNet, Inc. is excited to announce the opening of its new office in Bogotá, Colombia. As the world’s largest online marketplace for used industrial equipment, EquipNet continues its global expansion by developing a stronger presence in Latin America. Colombia is the third most populated country in Latin America and has one of the region’s fastest growing economies. Businesses in Colombia and neighboring countries are increasingly using EquipNet to source equipment for their manufacturing and laboratory facilities. Through EquipNet, they can purchase high quality equipment – often the same equipment used by leading multinationals – at a savings of 25% to 90% vs. the cost of new.
In addition to helping companies buy equipment, EquipNet also helps companies sell equipment – liquidating their surplus equipment assets for maximum cash returns. EquipNet has recently completed two projects for well-known global firms in Colombia. Working with a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer and a leading household and consumer products manufacturer, EquipNet liquidated more than 1,000 Colombian assets through auctions and negotiated sales, recovering millions of dollars in cash for its clients.
“I’m very excited that we were able to take on this project and turn it into reality,” said Johanna Gaviria, EquipNet’s Latin American Sales Manager and head of the Bogotá office. “The Colombian and South American markets are booming right now, so our local presence will definitely make a difference. There is no one that does what we do in this market and having a local presence is important to the Latin customer so it will inspire more confidence. But what really makes the office exciting are the new team members, whom bring energy and new ideas to help grow EquipNet.”
EquipNet, Inc. is the world’s leading provider of proactive asset management services and solutions for large and small corporations in the pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, and consumer packaged goods industries. EquipNet is an appraiser, broker, and auctioneer with a vision to revolutionize the way companies manage their surplus assets. Whether it’s surplus asset tracking, equipment redeployment, sales or purchasing second-hand equipment, EquipNet’s broad range of services allows clients to generate a significant amount of previously unidentified funds from assets that have just been sitting idle.
