The new, streamlined redesign and enhanced function, debuting just before the Industry's Westec 2001 tradeshow, was created in large part from the feedback and advice of their metalworking visitors. Now, instead of manually submitting machine listings individually, dealers and auctioneers can bridge their own inventories directly into MachineTools.com, saving hours of time and money. Furthermore, buyers can now reference used-machinery pricing from the past three years, in order to research a fair price for their intended purchases. Finally, machine shops and other visitors can now buy metals for their jobs direct through an online e-commerce solution.
Of the new design, MachineTools.com's CEO and founder, Stuart Carlin, said, Our plan is to continue listening and evolving to meet and exceed the needs of the Industry.
