Expertise and Integrity in Every Transaction

Welcome to CWR Resources, where our legacy and expertise as a leading used industrial packaging equipment dealer shapes every interaction and transaction. With years of experience in buying and selling used packaging and processing equipment, we have established ourselves as a trusted name in the industry. Our journey began in Geneva, Illinois in 1997 with a simple mission: to provide high-quality, pre-owned industrial machinery at competitive prices while ensuring a seamless and transparent process for both buyers and sellers.

Our Story: From Geneva to Nationwide Success

Our roots go deep into the heart of the industrial equipment sector. CWR Resources was founded on the principles of integrity, reliability, and customer satisfaction.

Our expansion includes equipment storage facilities in every pocket of the United States, reflecting our nationwide reach and capability.
