Operating Room #1...Stainless Steel Tubing.  3/16" stainless tubing.  This is unused, surplus inventory.  L: Denver   Click Here for Pricing>>

Before:  This tubing came from a laparoscopic surgery instrument manufacturer.  They changed the specs on their tubing, so this inventory became obsolete.  As you can imagine, this tubing is super high quality!

After:  "We had an artist suggest making a sculpture out of your tubing.  I think at least two boxes but will need to have him do the math." Doug  RE: Yeah, how about something like this art sculpture of Muhammad Ali.


Operating Room...#2.  BEFORE:  A major flooring manufacturer created a new product of resilient, PVC-free flooring targeted to operating rooms and healthcare facilities.  Once they got 50,000 sq ft of the flooring manufactured, they decided their product wouldn't be competitive in the marketplace.  So, they scrapped the whole product line.  STATUS:  They approached us, and they accepted our offer on all the rolls of flooring.  

Q:  Like this flooring manufacturer, do you have obsolete or off-spec product you'd like out of your warehouse??  If yes, call Damon @ 303.321.1471 or

repurposedFUNNY:  A Ph.D. from Ohio State University was leading a sustainability session that we attended a while back about starting a byproduct synergy group.  Damon went up and introduced himself afterward and offered to help the group by trying to find "repurposes" for some of the waste streams.  He cut him short and said, "We don't like 'scavengers' like you in our groups."  Ah, the academic elites, you got to love them.  We remember learning in biology that scavengers play a very important role in any ecosystem!! 

BEFORE:  "Damon, I have some left over materials in my yard I would like to get rid of in Queens.  I've got a bunch of unused granite curbing from different projects that was extra off different projects." - Joseph in New York City STATUS:  Joseph accept our offer and now the curbing is for sale.

Q:  Like Joseph, do you have materials piled up in your facility for different project overages?  We have interest!  Email Us Details>>
