One beneficiary of the demise of automotive molder Tarxien Inc. was Global Plastics of Surrey, B.C. Jed Friesen, a co-owner of Global Plastics, left the Tarxien auction last August with three more injection molding machines for his custom molding operation.

“We’ve found used equipment to be a more efficient use of our capital than new equipment,” explains Friesen. He feels the risks of buying used equipment are minimal, and has confidence his maintenance staff can handle any quirks. Global Plastics molds sanitary products for the paper industry.

Friesen purchased three Toshiba machines ranging from three to seven years old: one 720-ton, one 500-ton, and one 250-ton.
