IBE's Corporate Headquarters are located in Magnolia, Texas, which is 45 minutes Northwest of Houston, Texas.
IBE was established in 1995 as an Asset Management company catering to Large Corporations with High Value Assets.
During the first few years of business IBE managed the SMT Assembly Assets for a large OEM and became recognized
as a Source for Quality Used SMT Equipment. This recognition within the industry molded our business model and
allowed us to specifically focus on buying and selling Surface Mount Technology equipment.
IBE's Technical Team includes Field Service Engineers, Equipment Technicians and Feeder Repair Technicians that have
many years of experience in reconditioning, repairing and calibrating the equipment and accessories we sell. Our
entire Team shares a common goal of providing quality equipment and technical support to all of our customers. We
understand the importance of uptime and work hard to deliver equipment that is ready for production.

IBE specializes in the Marketing and Sale of SMT related assets. We have developed a Strategic Asset
Management Program for customers looking to maximize the Return On Investment "ROI" of their idle
assets. Being consistently active in both buying and selling allows us to accurately monitor market trends
and current pricing. Our program is highlighted by exceptional search engine results from our global
website marketing. Newsletters, print advertising, trade shows and other industry publications are also
applied in the program. Our extensive database of Global SMT Equipment Buyers enables us to achieve
Fair Market Value for each asset sold. We assist End Users around the World to place SMT Equipment
directly into manufacturing facilities.
Customers that select IBE as their Asset Management partner realize the benefits of the market value
trends we follow. SMT Equipment trades similarly to a commodity that is influenced by supply and demand.
IBE can assess your surplus equipment and make recommendations on release schedules preventing
market saturation that will affect the sale price of future like assets. We manage asset lists of all sizes ranging
from a few machines to complete manufacturing facilities.
We have developed strategic relationships with leading industry auction companies to offer our customers a
"Single Source Solution" that is designed to generate the highest Return On Investment. Understanding the market
demand of assets allows us to effectively manage and execute the sale of your assets utilizing the best marketing
approach which often includes a combination of negotiated sale, auction, trade and relocating assets to our facility.
The post-sale services offered by IBE's Technical Team increases buyer confidence and yields higher returns for
the assets we manage. We understand that buyers must have confidence not only in the equipment they are buying,
but also the Engineering Team that will support the equipment.
Customizing a strategy to the unique goals of each organization can be done in various ways. For instance IBE not
only sells surplus assets, but can also negotiate equipment trades enabling you to get the equipment that is immediately
required. IBE has on many occasions successfully executed trades that yielded new equipment directly from the OEM
in trade for fully depreciated assets. Our customers may choose to have IBE market the sale of assets directly from their
manufacturing floor or from our Magnolia, TX demonstration facility. We recommend relocating high value assets to our
facility where they can be completely demonstrated to prospective buyers and any issues that would reduce the market
value can be resolved. Contact IBE’s Sales Team if you would like more information on our Asset Management Program
and to better understand how our system can work for you.
