The Liberty Machinery Story

by Peter Sonneborn, President & Owner

When I left the machinery company that my family had owned for four generations and struck out on my own, I had a two-drawer filing cabinet, a pager, and a rented desk. That was 20 years ago.

Now, Liberty Machinery is an internationally-respected stocking dealer for used metalworking and fabricating manufacturing machines.

We’ve moved tens of millions of dollars in assets for industry leaders like Zimmer Biomet, Stryker, Caterpillar, Boeing, and GM. I also bought a desk.

My team and I were able to accomplish this because I’ve been involved in the machinery industry since I was a teenager gaping at the debut of the very first CNC machine tool. That, and I made a promise to myself that no piece of equipment would pass through our doors unless I was completely satisfied that it was the best machine I could offer my customers.

That’s my key commitment. I don’t just buy and sell the highest quality used machine tools. I take the time to actually listen to my clients and develop a plan that meets them where they are. I see myself not just as a stocking dealer but as a partner committed to serving others and upholding the highest standards of fairness.

Our mission is to help you increase productivity and profits...

…by streamlining the disposal process of your surplus machine tools...
