How We Work.  "Hi Damon, I always find your 'repurposed' emails of interest. We see a range of interesting assets. My guess is that there is a possible fit. I’d be interested in learning more about how your process works." - Tom, VP Asset Disposition  RETom, We're glad you asked.  We'll use this 185' pedestrian bridge as an example.  

BEFORE:  This 185' pedestrian bridge was purchased new in 2013 for a one year access solution while interstate work was being done near Los Angeles.  The owner tried to sell the bridge locally without success so he contacted us.  We made him a cash offer, and he accepted!  AFTER:  We ended up selling the bridge to a Park & Recreation District near San Francisco.  The buyer was thrilled because they saved a bundle of money over buying a new bridge!

Q: Do you have an asset, equipment, or inventory you'd like to sell?  Send Us Details>>

PLS:  Any time you see something for Craigslist, auction, eBay, etc...that you think would be a candidate for "repurposing", we'd appreciate you forwarding us the info!

backSTORY:   "The company manufactures powdered food flavoring. This heater box was to connect to a processor that would transfer the liquid flavoring into this unit that would send heated air into the chamber and evaporate the liquid leaving only the powdered flavoring behind.  The project was cancelled and this heater box was never completed.  The unit has a Cyclomax LoNox Burner on it.  The machine that you have was valued at $50,000 in its incomplete state. This unit is a 9,000 CFM heater box." - Jena

FOR SALE:  We have this heater box for sale.  L: Den

* A.C.E.  This acronym stands for AttributesCharacteristicsEngineering.  We use this acronym to tell you a little about a used material and what qualities it has in hopes that someone can find a "repurpose" for it.  Asked another way...what did the material do in it's 1st life that might help identify a very different, 2nd life for it?
