Sale of Highly Specialized Machinery Surpasses Automotive Manufacturer’s Expectations

A global corporation is renowned for manufacturing superchargers that power performance and fuel-efficiency for car enthusiasts who want to increase speed in four- and six-cylinder engines. A key part in the assembly process of this product is the Triflex U40 machine. This equipment contains highly specialized, valuable components and was expensive for the company to maintain.

Multinational Automotive Manufacturer Achieves Compliance and Maximizes Recovery in Reverse Supply Chain

Our client is a multinational corporation with over 1.76 million cars sold in 2014 that designs and manufactures vehicles. Since 2009, Liquidity Services has partnered with the client’s joint venture in China – where it’s one of the biggest automotive manufacturers – to provide comprehensive surplus asset management solutions.

Liquidity Services Helps Automotive Manufacturer to Clear Facility and Maximize Recovery

Timely Equipment Sourcing Helps Automotive Manufacturer Establish Presence in Growing Market

An international automotive parts manufacturer was opening a new facility in Mexico and needed machinery to produce quality components for this growing market. With a limited budget and an urgent need to begin production, the company turned to Liquidity Services to procure the required equipment.

International Automotive Supplier Achieves Exceptional Savings with AssetZone®

A global automotive supplier that manufactures a range of items — from driveline products to power technologies and service parts — needed a better way to internally manage its large asset catalog. With an average value of assets between €50,000 and €250,000 ($66,000 and $331,500*), the company could not afford to lose additional working capital or value on assets that were either being sold at less than their market value, or sitting idle in warehouses.

Valuation of a Tier One Automotive Supplier Facilitates Strategic Planning

A tier one supplier of manufactured, structural metal components and assemblies in the automotive industry had a range of equipment that required an appraisal report by its management every year in order to determine the timely value of its assets. The range of equipment was large and diverse; this consisted of large bed/large tonnage presses, robotic spot/mig welding cells, frame lines, e-coat systems, and material handling equipment.

Asset Disposition Utilized by Chinese Automotive Manufacturer

A leading Chinese automotive manufacturer needed to speed up the upgrades of their assets and retire old machinery and equipment. They did not want to just sell them as scrap, so they come to Liquidity Services to find a solution. We helped them maximize the return on their surplus assets by leveraging our buyer global database to manage surplus after equipment upgrades.
