GINDUMAC: New Business Unit Project Acquisition
According to management consultancy Falkensteg, the German mechanical and plant engineering sector was the industry most affected by insolvencies in the 2021 year-on-year comparison.
However, government support measures continue to keep the overall number of cases low. Nevertheless, the challenges posed by supply bottlenecks, rising raw material and energy prices and industrial structural change remain constant. The pressure on sales with rising credit costs is thus becoming increasingly greater for many machinery and plant manufacturers. A development from which renowned credit insurers predict an increase in global insolvencies for 2022.
The signs of this trend are also visible in the transactional machinery platform GINDUMAC. “We are very close to the pulse of industrial manufacturing. In recent months, more and more companies have asked us about restructuring their production in order to be able to achieve liquidity in the short term through machine sales. The number of offers for plant closures has increased significantly in the same period,” explains Janek Andre, CEO GINDUMAC.
The increasing demand for project services in the context of plant closures has prompted GINDUMAC to create a new business unit, Project Acquisition. Oliver Maxeiner, an expert in industrial liquidation, has been recruited for the development of this new division. Maxeiner has many years of experience in project acquisition and project marketing of industrial assets.
“With the new business division, we are following the signs of the market. With Oliver Maxeiner, we have been able to gain an experienced industry expert and entrepreneurial spirit who knows what is important in the project business in the manufacturing industry. We are pleased to be able to expand the area of project acquisition in an even more targeted manner with him and to be able to offer our industrial customers an even more comprehensive range of services,” adds Benedikt Ruf, Managing Director GINDUMAC.
The focus for 2022 is on projects in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Further international projects will be considered according to business opportunities.
GINDUMAC operates an online platform for the global used machinery trading. For sellers and buyers of used industrial machinery, GINDUMAC offers a full transaction processing with an all-round carefree package. The German company buys and sells used machines from the metal working, sheet metal and plastics processing industry. The product range includes machine tools, sheet metal working machines and injection molding machines from various international manufacturers.
