About Us

Robert Brams, President of BMI Surplus, Inc., has always loved scientific equipment. He has been in business for over 30 years as a supplier resource center for premier colleges and universities, research facilities, individuals and manufacturing businesses worldwide. At BMI Surplus, Inc., we offer quality new and used scientific equipment at a great price along with outstanding customer service. We take pride in our customer base, which includes "hands on" type individuals: scientists, manufacturers, technicians and researchers.                         

Our 20,000 square foot warehouse is filled with used, new, recycled and some refurbished high quality scientific equipment including optical tables, optical breadboards, optical stages, optical equipment, optical components, microscopes, lab equipment, vacuum equipment, and lasers. We also carry a large assortment of test equipment, power supplies, semiconductor equipment, large machine tools, industrial equipment, plumbing & electrical supplies, recirculating chillers, electric motors, photo, audio and radio equipment, computer equipment & product instruction and operation manuals. This doesn't even begin to cover the stock that we have in our massive inventory. If you can't find it on our website just give customer service a call and we'd be happy to check to see if we have what you need in stock. Our inventory is updated daily and every item listed on our website is in stock and ready to ship today.

Most of our pre-owned equipment comes from working environments and many items have been tested by a technician. BMI also carries some inventory items that may not be functioning properly. We maintain this inventory to supply the demand of those of you seeking parts for legacy items.  These items are priced accordingly, sold "as is" and may not be returned.

When you purchase from www.bmisurplus.com you can be confident that your information is protected. Our checkout process is encrypted with SSL technology through a secure server. We know your time is valuable, so we do our best to ship within 24 hours after receipt of payment.

We are continually receiving new loads of new and used scientific equipment inventory and our turnover is very high so we have a category on the home page that shows our newest acquisitions. This is the clickable large green box labeled "Newest Listings." This page changes daily so save the link in your browser. If you are looking for something specific but do not see it listed, please feel free to contact us by phone at 781-871-8868 or send us a wish list via email at sales@bmisurplus.com . Providing excellent customer service is our highest priority.

We use Insta-Pak foam-in-place to ensure your package will be delivered safely.  We have over 30 years of shipping sensitive scientific & industrial equipment. Be assured we ship with the utmost care!

Please enjoy your shopping experience and thank you for your continued support.
