(March 12, 3:30 p.m.) Multivac, Inc., a Kansas City, Mo.-based packaging equipment company, has launched a new Web site dedicated to selling its certified pre-owned and remanufactured equipment.

The site can be found at www.multivacresale.com. The site provides interested parties with information on how to learn details of Multivac’s pre-owned and remanufactured equipment as well as instructions on how to view and purchase the equipment, according to a news release.

“It’s just another way to get another price point out there to better serve a broad segment of our market,” said Jerry Hirsh, marketing manager at Multivac.

Hirsh said Multivac has a good reputation in the packaging equipment field, and a problem has been that nonaccredited or unqualified parties have been working on Multivac machinery and reselling them, complete with pirated parts, under the Multivac name.

Mulivac formed a new business unit dedicated to rebuilding and reselling previously owned equipment in August to fight that problem.

“This way, customers have the assurance (that the equipment) has been restored to pre-factory specs,” Hirsh said. “The company has signed off on it, and you know it’s going to work for you.”
