Team Leader: Tim Krämer

"Hello, transporting a machine from A to B on time can be quite tricky. For example, when an industrial plant has to be divided among several containers for overseas transport. Fortunately, I can rely on our professional team. Together with the project management, our logistic specialists always ensure a smooth processing procedure including dismantling, loading and customs. Worldwide and even under the most difficult conditions, and I am proud of that!

Project Management

Senior Project Manager: Huy Trinh

"Hello, after years of professional experience in industrial hydraulics, I discovered my passion for global B2B commerce. A startup called Surplex gave me the chance to turn my vocation into a career. That was in 2000. In the meantime, I have managed and handled countless major international projects. In doing so, I optimise the interests of both the buyer and the seller side. I'm not satisfied until all the machines have been sold and I've handed over the factory floor swept clean."


Focus Machine Trader: Kristina Voosholz

"Hello, at Surplex I fulfil the function of an interface to the classical machine trade. For several years I worked in a leading position at a well-known machine dealer. Therefore I know the concerns of the industry, but also the potential. is the ideal sales channel when it comes to marketing large quantities of peripherals, tools, inventory, etc. For a short-term stock clearance. Or in the event of a plant closure. The cooperation with Surplex is then worth its weight in gold!"
