About Us

What we do

We buy used machinery, make it good as new and find it a home.




Who we work with

We work with schools, colleges and design technology departments looking for an easy way to move on unused equipment. So far, we have provided schools and colleges with over £500k of extra funding. We also do UK spelling, estate clearances and one-off purchases.

Where did the name come from?

Pronounced ‘O·stee·uh’, Ostia was the largest trading port in ancient Rome. So, what does that mean for machinery suppliers?

Well, think of us like the trading port for all second-hand machinery. The machinery middlemen.
