Appraisals

Uniquely qualified for expert equipment appraisals

FL Sales CEO John Greene is one of the few USPAP trained foundry appraisers in the U.S. and Canada. His 40-plus years of experience in foundries, pattern and machine shops and industrial manufacturing, plus certifications from major association, make John uniquely qualified to perform realistic, accurate and professional appraisals of your equipment.

Your equipment and machinery are your biggest assets; proper valuation is critical not only for equipment sales and facility liquidations, but for financing and loan procedures, insurance policies, business valuations for tax purposes, changes in partnership and ownership and other reasons.

John’s solid industry experience and in-depth knowledge of machinery have made him a sought-after resource for many “generalist” appraisal companies. In fact, they frequently call upon his expertise because they lack the necessary insight into capital equipment to perform effective appraisals.

Certifications are critical to accurate, effective appraisals

It’s important to utilize a certified appraiser for your foundry and capital equipment valuations, and to assure that USPAP standards for professional appraisal practices are used.  As many of our customers have learned the hard way, having appraisals done by an individual who is not certified opens to door to liability and risk, extra costs and an unsubstantiated equipment appraisal.

John maintains virtually every key certification and training, including:

  • Certified Equipment Appraiser (CEA) with the Association of Machinery and Equipment Appraisers
  • Certified Senior Appraiser (CSA) with the Equipment Appraisers Assn. of North America
  • Trained in USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) coursework

John has performed hundreds of on-site equipment and machinery appraisals throughout the U.S. and abroad.  This in-house expertise is a true asset to FL Sales, and a major component in its commitment to being a one-stop resource for all aspects of buying and selling foundry and capital equipment.
