About us

Ramco has been powering the circular economy since 1996.

Government departments and businesses alike trust us to help them sell the equipment they no longer need – from electrical goods, vehicles and machinery to catering and fitness equipment.


What we do

We’re on a mission to stop valuable assets sitting idle by giving them a new lease of life.

Experts in reuse, our hassle-free, fully managed service finds new homes for surplus assets  – clearing space, reducing unnecessary storage costs and generating vital funds for our clients.

Our experienced sales team markets a whole range of surplus assets to thousands of potential customers around the world through our various sales routes, all with the aim of providing the best financial return as quickly as possible. They’re on hand to discuss direct sales for specific products or talk you through the various types of auctions we offer.

We’re known for our long-standing partnerships with the public sector, including the Ministry of Defence and blue light emergency services, so we understand the importance of compliance and ease of process.

With years of experience handling the disposal of surplus equipment from almost every market sector and government department, we offer our clients complete peace of mind, treating every job in accordance with current Environmental and Health & Safety legislation.

Above all, we offer convenience. From decommissioning, collection and refurbishment, right through to storage, marketing and sales, we provide a complete reuse solution.

Our company history


Ramco was re-awarded with the nationwide MoD contract for the reuse of commercial assets, now including the sale of clothing and textiles. With nearly 30 years’ experience working with the MoD, Ramco is delighted to add this contract to the existing scrap metal contract it also operates. Ramco’s service is awarded a place on an NHS Shared Business Services sustainable waste framework, providing asset reuse services for trusts and public sector organisations across the UK. And for the first time ever, Ramco helped BBC Studios reuse unwanted props and costumes from the Eurovision 2023 event in Liverpool, giving fans an opportunity to own a piece of Eurovision history!

The organisation continues to grow, welcoming six new staff members, taking the total team to forty-one.
