MAGNOLIA, Texas — One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Or perfectly usable desktop PC. Or coin counter. Or $40,000 Unisys check printer that was only used a couple of times before a bank buyout left it gathering dust.

That’s the idea behind FindUEX, an online auction site for used equipment that focuses on the credit union industry. Up and running since October, FindUEX (www.finduex.com) has been signing up 20 to 50 credit unions a month, says Gary Mattingly, the president and CEO of the Houston-area operation. “The response has been good.

Because it’s just what they need.”
