About The Machinery Management People

IMG 0915

Having lived and breathed engineering for over 40 years The Machinery Management People evolved from Managing Director Paul Lee’s historic background in CNC machine tools. Working with leading OEM’s, machine tool agents and end users to creating and building the UK’s largest independent service support company.

Our Journey…


Having tried and succeeded in auctions with cnconlineauctions.com, offering a unique approach by splitting an already industry low buyers premium which was split between buyer and seller. The business still felt the archaic auction ethos lacked a “human” feel and offered no support to end users...

CNC Online delivered a more direct approach focusing on giving buyers and sellers a more responsive experience when trading in machinery and equipment, by utilising the “Make an Offer” and Buy Now” features throughout the website, alongside offering an Assurance+ service to help collect-deliver and install machinery and equipment. It was realised that the sector was lacking a company who truly catered for the life cycle of engineering equipment, it was time to bring about change... 


Customer service sits at the heart of The Machinery Management People who believe buyers, sellers and owners of machinery and equipment should get not only the best price but best service no matter where they sit in the ownership of equipment. Our support services for collection, delivery and installation plus ongoing management, not only give confidence in the purchase but for the long-term ownership as well.
