Mevas Machinery Evaluation

Business Policy

Mevas is absolutely independent from equipment traders. Mevas and all equipment inspectors are not involved in machinery trading activities. We do not receive commissions and we do not raise expertise in someones favour, in fact we pride ourselves in giving a totally unbiased appraisal of all equipment we inspect. All information about equipment, machine location and other details are only shared with the customer that ordered Mevas for inspection.

Technical Background

Although Mevas may appear to be a young company, having been founded in 2006 the owner Wolfgang Bühn has work-life long experience with construction equipment. Having grown up in East Germany he learned operating and repair of heavy equipment from the basics. Later he worked in a large construction company (Strabag) and in 1992 he started his career with the German Caterpillar dealer Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH. Going through different responsibilities he became in 1997 Sales Manager for Used Equipment. From 2002 his duties included the responsibility for Zeppelin's international Used Equipment business. In 2006 the idea was born, to offer for dealer and users of construction equipment an independent service of machine condition inspections. The first order we got from Finning Canada to inspect 16 Caterpillar 771 trucks in an South African Goldfield. Mevas has now progress to a point where we carry out inspections for many dealers and users in Europe and other parts of the world.

Mevas engineers get regularly training to remain on top level knowlege. Some inspectors have been trained for crane inspections. Others have good experience with agriculture machines and road trucks.
