The second hand confectionery equipment market is buoyant, with strong demand noted in the past 12 months, reports used machinery supplier Ecomec, who added that lack of access to credit within the industry is a predominant factor for the sales hike.

Confectionerynews.com spoke with Greg Meredith, managing director Ecomec UK, at the industry trade show Pro Sweets, and he said that confectionery makers with surplus equipment are now keen to sell rather than keep it in storage as they need to generate cash in a restrictive credit lending environment.

He said confectionery makers are also realising the advantages the purchasing of second hand stock can give them in that they can get a quality machine at a fraction of the new price and within a quicker delivery timeframe than with new machinery.

He said that Ecomec specialises in the buying and selling of used process and packaging machinery for the confectionery industry, and as a stockist of machines and not just a machinery broker it has greater control over the condition, pricing and delivery times.
