GINDUMAC offers market value estimation and asset management for machine parks
In times of dynamic market developments and changing project requirements, the management of machine parks becomes a challenge for manufacturers.
“We are currently seeing that manufacturing companies are increasingly contacting us to obtain a current market value assessment of their machines and their machine parks,” says Benedikt Ruf, co-founder and Managing Director of GINDUMAC, explaining the change in perspective in the market.
GINDUMAC sees that the market value and marketing potential of used machines is becoming a much more important refinancing instrument in investment planning. This is mainly due to the increasing market dynamics and the resulting need for flexibility in production capacity and application diversity.
“Smart old-for-new investments will probably develop into the new standard. In this context, the marketing of used machines will become a strategic value driver. We are currently experiencing a kind of renaissance of used machinery trading,” says Benedikt Ruf.
Knowing what machines are still worth on the market
The machinery market is currently characterized by very dynamic supply and demand cycles. Market stagnation is leading to high discounts on new machinery purchase offers and a higher quantity of available used machines in the market. When making purchasing decisions, it becomes increasingly difficult to realistically determine what value manufacturers can still achieve on the market for their used machines. GINDUMAC offers a market-related valuation concept to support manufacturers in their investment planning.
To determine the current market value, GINDUMAC considers three value dimensions: Machine quality, market situation and depreciation value. To capture the market situation, GINDUMAC uses data technology developed in-house. “With our Market Intelligence System, MIS, we map supply, demand and price developments to machine models. In this way we ensure that we can estimate and evaluate the market values of used machines on a real market level. This is a decisive factor in knowing what our customers’ machines are really still worth,” says Janek Andre, co-founder and CEO, describing the special feature of value assessment.
