JJ Bender Plays the Export Game
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
In an open letter to customers, JJ Bender President, Jeffrey Bender, writes, "If it's cloudy out, then let's sell umbrellas!" This positive attitude towards a struggling economy is the driving force behind JJ Bender's newest export business which in the past 4 months has doubled the company's profits.
Initially created as a small initiative to help more of their US customers liquidate outdated printing equipment, it quickly evolved into an active export business, where containers of machines began to include high-volume digital printing equipment.
"I've been in the business of selling used printing equipment for over 30 years, but this is the first time I've been able to export this many machines on such a consistent basis," says Mr. Bender, adding, "and all of this business abroad has helped us to hire new employees, offer flexible financing to American companies, and outfit smaller businesses with newer technology that they couldn't previously afford with older equipment still lying around."
With the influx of container requests from international customers, JJ Bender has formed a new export division to deal exclusively with high-volume digital printing equipment. The team handles various regions of the globe which include South America, Europe, and Asia.
As for the competition of other US exporters? Jeffrey Bender welcomes it. "When it comes to exporting used printing machines, the more the merrier, because at the end of the day, exporting used equipment means that American businesses can turn their outdated equipment into cold hard cash, and then this cash get's invested back into the economy. It's a win-win for everyone."
JJ Bender LLC has been in business for over 30 years and is a market leader in the office automation equipment industry. They specialize in the buying and selling of high-volume digital printing equipment, but other services include customized workflow solutions and independent leasing.
