CAE Online was founded in 1982, focusing initially on building the highest quality catalogue of secondary semiconductor equipment. In 2008, CAE Online became Capital Asset Exchange and Trading, LLC (CAE).
In five short years, CAE has transformed the market for secondary capital equipment by creating a transparent, safe and effective global marketplace for buyers and sellers of secondary equipment. A few highlights from the past few years:
- We have built a level of global intelligence through our database and tracking system that is unparalleled in the secondary equipment market.
- We've expanded the number of products we own or track from roughly 10,000 to more than 120,000.
- Our revenues have grown from $1 million to more than $100 million and our team has expanded from just a handful of employees to our robust trading team of today.
- Our customer list reflects this growth. From 95 percent brokers and not more than 100 clients in 2008, today we serve more than 1,400 global clients at every major academic university, public company, institution, and research center in the semiconductor market.
Today, CAE is the largest and most active capital equipment marketplace in the world, completing more than 2,000 transactions each year across North America, Europe, and Asia. We are now moving into the second phase of our growth strategy, providing completely integrated solutions, new technology, and new services to our key markets.
