Before the company started in 1999, MachineTools.com Founder and CEO Stuart Carlin was running a fax advertising service for auctions and used machines when he realized that the Internet was quickly becoming the best and fastest way to connect buyers and sellers. The day his office burned down (true story), he decided that it was time to realize that vision, and with lead developer Joe Qin, the vision became a reality. The company has continued to innovate, adding the industry’s first mobile site in 2007, an iPhone / iPad app in 2012, and a totally redesigned website in 2013 – with a refresh in 2015. In 2014 MachineTools.com extended its expertise in online lead generation for used machinery to new machinery, further helping buyers find the machines they need. In July 2019, the company launched its dealer/distributor software called MachineryManager.com, which is a game changer for resellers of any industry.
