The ReTEC, as the international platform for used machines and systems of all industries, is presently repositioning itself and starts in April 2017 in Augsburg. The FDM (Trade Association for Machine Tools + Tooling – Fachverband des Maschinen- und Werkzeug-Großhandels e. V.) and EAMTM (European Association of Machine Tool Merchants) are cooperating as far as the technology is concerned and their members are also actively participating which leads to a wide range of offered products. In addition, the focus is on construction site equipment, industrial trucks and agricultural machinery, as well as metal working machines and machine tools. Joint participations from Great Britain, Italy and China are also planned and will ensure the exceptional internationality of the event. Apart from used machinery, the ReTEC presents different service providers specialised in retrofitting, disassembly and assembly, as well as special ways of transport for various types of machinery. This way the ReTEC is able to offer a comprehensive product range of used machinery and systems. Starting 2017, the ReTEC will either take place in Augsburg or Essen. The venue will alternate every year. The fair will always be held in April, at the same time as the Hanover Trade Fair.
