Can You Trust Refurbished Printing Presses?

As a global supplier of second-hand printing presses, one of the biggest barriers we come up against is clients worrying that their press will not have the longevity of a new one. They apply similar logic to when they are buying a second-hand car – if it’s got more miles on the clock, it’s got less miles left in the engine.

However, this logic falls short for a few reasons, here at BBR graphics.

Engineering Process

In the first instance, before we source any second-hand machine, we like to carry out a thorough inspection. We know that descriptions of condition can be embellished or misleading, so we like to come to our own conclusions, where possible. This also sets us up well for our second step.


Once a press or machine is in our facility we carry out one of the most comprehensive refurbishment processes of any press restorer on the planet. Our engineers have years of experience between them, and our dedication to be the best at what we do led us to build our own, one of a kind, cleaning bay.

When carrying out refurbishments we replace any worn or damaged parts with either manufacturers original, or high-quality OEM.

Once reassembled, we carry out a thorough inspection and testing of the press, to make sure it runs exactly as it should. We even have our own paint workshop so we can bring the second hand machine back to life and make it look like new.


Unlike other suppliers, BBR Graphics can personally deliver and install your new machine. This means that the same engineers who brought the printing press back to life, will be the same ones that install it in your facility. This end-to-end solution gives us full accountability, and means that we are on-hand if you should have any questions about your new press.

So, can you trust refurbished?

We still understand your scepticism when buying a second-hand printing press, but we can assure you, that when you buy from BBR Graphics, you can rest easy knowing that your machine will have years of life and millions of prints left in it.
