|TPX was founded in 1991 to help printers more easily buy and sell used graphic arts equipment. This led to the creation of the TPX Marketplace where more printers advertise their used equipment than in all trade publications combined!
In 1995, the TPX Marketplace went on-line for the first time.
In addition, TPX has developed many off-line delivery techniques. Buyers and sellers can call TPX and request reports listing available equipment via fax or mail, or even information on disk. TPX Marketplace reports listing some of the equipment being advertised in our marketplace are also distributed monthly to members of most North American graphic arts associations.
Starting in 1996, TPX began expanding its services by publishing the TPX Sourcebook, the most complete directory of North American companies that manufacturer, sell (new or used) or service any type of graphic arts equipment or supplies.
In 1997, TPX began publishing the TPX Trade Buyer's Guide which printers and printing brokers use to outsource printing and other trade services - or buy products for resale (i.e., ad specialties).
By February 1999, TPX had totally rebuilt its Web site to improve its used equipment search engine and add on-line access to the TPX Sourcebook, Tech Specs, Buyer's Guide and everything else on this Web site. We hope you find it helpful.
