Plant & Machinery Consultancy

Plant and Machinery valuation is a specialised field. Since 1877, Henry Butcher's skills and expertise in providing plant and machinery valuation and disposal services have gained worldwide recognition, covering most of the major trades and industries. The company has comprehensive disposal methodologies that are supported by groundbreaking technology, all of which allow for complete transparency of the transaction to achieve the maximum possible realisation for surplus assets.

In 1999, Henry Butcher was acquired by GoIndustry plc, the global leader in auction sales and valuations of used industrial machinery and equipment, along with other premium brands including Michael Fox International and Karner & Co. In 2006 GoIndustry became the first international plant and machinery auction company to be quoted on the AIM London Stock Exchange, and in February 2008 the group acquired their major competitor, Dovebid, to become the world leader in the industry. This integration means we have a worldwide network of offices to provide global clients with unparalleled sector expertise with four geographic business units - America, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia.
