Meet Our Team

Global Machine Brokers LLC started in 2007 by Joe Wihbey. While working as an engineering manager in Watertown CT, he found that the busy schedule of production did not allow time for managers to move machinery on or off the floor. There were no services available to assist companies in buying, selling, brokering, and consigning equipment. Global Machine Brokers, LLC provides an easy way for companies to sell their surplus machinery and purchase needed equipment. Today Global Machine Brokers, LLC is located at 58 Commercial St in scenic Watertown, CT. We have a full service team of sales, customer service, shipping, marketing, and warehouse associates. We are partnered with Global Machine Movers, LLC a fully insured rigging company ready to assist with any machinery moves. Please meet our team in the bios below.
