The Machineseeker Group operates the leading online network for used machines and commercial vehicles in Europe with its marketplaces Machineseeker, the German equivalent Maschinensucher, TruckScout24 and Werktuigen. More than 12,000 sellers currently advertise over 250,000 machines on these platforms. Over 15 million monthly visitors generate an inquiry volume of more than 120 billion euros per year. Since 1999, the company is constantly growing and is profitable from day one.


Thorsten Muschler (left in the picture) was born in Essen and is the founder and managing director of Machineseeker. The Internet pioneer launched the platforms Maschinensucher.de & Machineseeker.com in the late nineties and went online with his idea ahead of the German spin-offs of Google & Ebay.


Since 2017, Sven Schmidt (right in the picture) has been the second Managing Director responsible above all for Marketing and Sales. In the start-up scene, the experienced entrepreneur is known as managing partner of ICS as well as through his regular appearances on the Online Marketing Rockstars podcast. 


Our company is located in the heart of Essen-Süd, Germany, only a few minutes' walk from the central station.
