THIS Buyer’s Reference Number of SURPLUS RECORD is our contribution to American Industry. For nearly fourteen years, we have been issuing this book as a ready reference for machinery buyers who need equipment in a hurry, or are limited in their appropriations on plant expansion.
The majority of dealers in used and surplus industrial equipment are represented in this number. They are all sincere in the offerings they are making, but in view of the activity in the machinery market some of this equipment advertised is already disposed of before the publication reaches your hands.
The service which SURPLUS RECORD is rendering to American Industry is becoming more important each year. Literally thousands of manufacturers have contacted us for information regarding the location of machinery, or for suggestions in helping them dispose of surplus or idle equipment.
Manufacturers all over the world have found SURPLUS RECORD a valuable source of information because it has been about their only means of knowing what is available in the line of used machinery, and has greatly facilitated filling their immediate needs.
The publisher of SURPLUS RECORD takes this opportunity to thank the numerous dealers in used machinery and equipment, also the buyers of machinery, for their cooperation in helping to make this publication the success it is.
SURPLUS RECORD wants you to know that the service which it is now rendering will be continued on an even larger scale, and invites everyone in American Industry to take the fullest advantage of what this publication has to offer.
