Our mission has been to change the way the world trades since Machine Compare was founded by brothers
Eric and Ben Findlay.
Today, that one mission has flourishes into a team helping make the world greener. Because we only
2021 was the year our sister site and ecommerce platform, the Green Parts Marketplace, was born.
After identifying around $10bn worth of surplus spare parts destined for landfill, it was clear
industry needed a solution.
Now, manufacturers can help these spare parts fulfil their intended lifecycle
before being recycled or refurbished by listing them online. We call these surplus parts ‘green
parts’. As “like-new”, unused products, green parts offer a cost-effective solution to offset CO2
That’s not to say there weren’t any hurdles along the way. The critical challenge
to overcome was data quality.
So, we decided to make data a core part of our offering. With our inventory
management solution, we enrich data to make trading smooth. And we do it fast.
Through this solution, we help populate missing data, as well as standardise and
centralise it. This makes the parts easy to recirculate back in the market or trade them internally.
This solution is also helping alleviate current supply chain shocks by bringing greater visibility
and transparency to the industrial market.
That way, buyers and seller can both be confident when trading. Now, optimising managing and trading
spare parts doesn’t have to cost the earth.
On a personal note, Eric tragically fell ill and passed away as the brothers were developing the
company. This prompted Ben to pledge that he would continue their mission to make a positive change
in the world. Something, we work for every day.
