If you cannot answer yes to all of these questions, proceed with great caution. We have heard many horror stories and have even had brokers offer to sell us equipment we already own!
CMTec has been your value added used semiconductor equipment reseller and partner – for over 20 years. We are not a broker. A valued customer recently told us “Good after sale technical support is what takes the risk out of investing in used equipment.” We couldn’t agree more! We own every piece of equipment we sell and are committed to adding significant value including installation and training, after sales service, comprehensive spare parts and warranties for most equipment. Many of our customers are repeat buyers for these reasons.
