Revolution Equipment Sales Creates a New Market for Used Winery and Brewery Production Equipment


Date: 06/24/13

June 24, 2013 Santa Rosa, CA — Revolution Equipment Sales is open for business. The new company specializes in the purchase, servicing and resale of high-quality used winery and brewery production equipment. According to Revolution Equipment Sales' president, Ed Barr, “Wineries and breweries were telling us they needed a reliable partner to help them with their high-quality production equipment that no longer fit their operation. They wanted to recoup any value in the equipment so they could invest it elsewhere. Since I was also being asked if I knew of sources for reliable used equipment, it dawned on me there was a business opportunity and knew I could help.”

Each piece of equipment purchased by Revolution Equipment Sales is thoroughly checked out for any operational issues. Then it is serviced and refurbished to assure reliable performance. Barr adds, “Our business model is similar to certified pre-owned car sales. People want to buy quality used equipment and they want assurances it will perform. We make sure the performance is there and go a step further by backing everything with a warranty. We also offer equipment maintenance programs for anything we sell. We have contractor licenses for California, Oregon and Washington so we handle installations or removals.”

Revolution Equipment Sales has launched a full-feature website to support sellers and buyers. Sellers can submit details and photos of equipment they want to dispose of and buyers can see existing inventory. Buyers can also put in a “help me find” request for a particular piece of equipment. This fall, Revolution Equipment Sales plans to add an auction function that will allow buyers to bid and reserve a piece of equipment online to streamline transactions even more.

More information is available at the Revolution Equipment Sales website, www.revoquip.com or by calling 707-573-3154.
