Our History

Perry Epstein formed his company, Perry Equipment & Supply in 1932 in Philadelphia. An engineer by training, Perry saw the value of used process equipment during the Great Depression. His vision of high quality equipment for a competitive price still drives our company today.

The market maker in used process equipment for the chemical and related industries, Perry started to manufacture new pressure vessels and heat exchangers after World War II. That business is now known as Perry Products Corp. The used equipment divisions expanded to offer equipment for the manufacture of plastics, pulp, paper, sugar and pharmaceuticals. With its combination with Videx Machinery in 1998, Perry Videx is now the largest used equipment dealer in the world covering all these industries.

Our first international office was established in England in 1990 as Perry Process Equipment, Ltd. We soon expanded into Poland and the Czech Republic, and now have people ready to serve you in Russia, Ukraine and Mexico as well as agents in many countries.
