Company Description
 
We are the asset resale service for universities.
 
We collect, store and sell surplus laboratory and other equipment from universities across the UK. We then sell this equipment to our extensive network of business customers (which includes UK and overseas universities, research institutes, research-focused SMEs and repair specialists).
 
After sale, we return a share of the profits to the department, school or college where the equipment was sourced.
 
In doing this, we help universities reduce waste, consume resources more sustainably, and improve the financial efficiency of the research industry through better reuse of its available resources.
 
Our solution finally offers a way to prevent the common problem where staff are forced to dispose of high quality equipment through waste skips simply due to shortages of time, space and a lack alternative solutions.
