Active Stock Management is a company that specializes in buying Surplus material from all over the world. Through Active Stock Management (or “ASM” for short), you have the opportunity to easily get rid of your obsolete stock. We have over 20 years of experience in evaluating and buying excess stocks. An international team of expert account managers is at your service!
We take over dormant stocks (‘surplus’) from companies from various industries. Sooner or later, many companies are faced with inactive or surplus supplies: projects end, production lines are changed or updated, new product lines are introduced, or orders are returned. Machinery and spare parts that no longer have any use take up space and cost money. Often, this surplus material is put into long-term storage before finally being thrown out. Quite wasteful, we believe!
Eliminate your excess stock in a timely manner. Active Stock Management is happy to buy your bearings, electric motors, automation parts, pneumatics, hydraulics and comparable materials. This allows you to easily cash in on your old stock.
