Over the last few years the UK printing industry has been changing shape.
Government figures demonstrate that in those sectors where short runs and personalised print dominate, turnover is actually on the increase. The demand for photo products is growing rapidly and the greeting card and printed book markets are both holding up well demonstrating the resilience of the sector.
However, those areas which have traditionally seen higher volumes such as newspapers, magazines, catalogues and advertising material have been on the decline, leading to printers cutting back on capacity, reducing the number of litho printing machines to lower their overheads and instead turning to digital for short run, fast turnaround print.
The print industry is far from dead and here at Auction News we regularly list auctions of printing machinery and related equipment - in 2020 alone we listed 24 auctions in this category. Reasons for this type of machinery being auctioned off include company liquidation or administration, a company upgrading to more modern machinery or perhaps selling off surplus machinery to reduce its printing capacity and thus its overheads.
Here are some examples of print machinery and equipment included in printing machinery auctions listed on our site in the last year:
We work with the UK’s leading auctioneers in this sector to bring you the very best live and timed online auctions available. The auctions we provide access to enable you to purchase used and sometimes even new print machinery and equipment at auction for a fraction of the cost of buying new from a machine dealer.
Buying through the Auction News catalogue listings will give you extra peace of mind, knowing that you’ll be buying through professional auctioneers who are specialists in the field.
As a dedicated family-run auction business, Auction News are proud to provide customers with easy access to the most sought-after printing machinery auctions which can be so hard to find elsewhere - the very auctions where some of the best auction bargains can be found.
