repurposedPROJECT:  "Nathan, from South Dakota, purchased 33 sheets of gym flooring. He is using it to build a custom squash court in his basement." - Patrick (our Chicago manager)

INTERESTING FACT:  Many think that "repurposing" is for those of the lower income demographic.  To the contrary, as Nathan's home squash court attests, we have many very high net worth and business owners/executives as customers and supporters!  Hmmm...might there be a correlation between frugality and net worth!?!

How We Work.  BEFORE:  "Any interest in about 450,000 feet of 3/8" Extra High Strength Steel galvanized cable from our utility company?  We were offered $XX/ton at the scrapyard.  I would rather see it 'repurposed' than melted as scrap anyway." David Peterson   STATUS:  We offered David more than scrap price, and he accepted our offer. 

Q:  Like Dave, do you metal inventories that you'd like sell for more than scrap price?  We pay more than scrap!!!
