Primarily PDS act as an intermediary for sellers and buyers to source, and re-home used print equipment.

Established in 1990 we wanted to share our experience and knowledge of screen and pad printing through bespoke in-house training and consultancy. This took us around the world working with companies such as Harley Davidson, Cussons, Timex, ITT, FESPA, etc as well as many smaller companies.

We were frequently asked if we knew anyone looking to buy or selling a particular piece of equipment, hence the setting up of our used equipment website.

Our motto is:

“Printing is NOT a black art, it is an engineering process, that is measurable, controllable, predictable, and above all profitable.”
