About us

Ramco has been powering the circular economy since 1996.

Government departments and businesses alike trust us to find value in their equipment that’s no longer needed – from electrical goods and plant or machinery to catering and fitness equipment.

 

What we do

We’re on a mission to stop valuable assets sitting idle, because none of us can afford to waste resources – for the planet and for profit 

Experts in reuse, our hassle-free, fully managed service finds new homes for surplus assets – protecting the environment, saving 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.
