I have been active in the textile industry since 1970, when I began my career with the formation of my first company focusing on imports and exports. In 1975, I rebranded the company as American Plant and Equipment, Inc., of which I am the current owner and president.

Both companies sold machinery in most countries throughout the world, first specializing in textile dyeing and finishing machinery and later branching out into all areas of the textile industry including cotton spinning, synthetic filament spinning, wool and worsted spinning, weaving, knitting, nonwoven industrial fabric equipment, narrow fabric machinery and other textile machinery.

Over the years we represented and introduced to the United States market such companies as Vamatex, Galvanin, Hauser, Guma and many other European brands. American Plant and Equipment started to concentrate on other fields such as home textiles and nonwoven equipment.

My company currently specializes in nonwoven equipment, mattress making equipment, medical textiles, medical equipment, face mask machinery and related equipment, food stuffs equipment, sewing equipment, equipment for mattress and bedspread innerspring making machines, chocolate production machinery, potato chip lines, blown film, bubble film, metalized film equipment, recycling equipment such as rag picking and tearing machines, pillow blowing equipment, as well as foam equipment for the mattress, upholstery and packaging industry. All kinds of textiles machines, from opening and cleaning to spinning, weaving, finishing, and printing.

Our company currently buys and sells anything from single, individual machines to complete plants and includes installation (turnkey) service. We do consignment sales, brokerage sales, outright purchases for resale, evaluations/appraisals and orderly liquidations.

We have a full shop for reconditioning machinery, complete with mechanical, electrical and electronic technicians prepared to handle a multitude of different machinery, its rebuilding, initial disassembly, reassembly, packing and shipping.
