About AB Commercial Services, Inc.
ABcsi is a
green conscious physical asset recovery firm helping our clients stay ahead of their surplus and waste through a host of services and surplus reduction programs with customized financial agreements to meet our clients overall objectives.
In 1987 after installing and repairing large industrial equipment Founder Michael Lombardi and a team of colleagues opened A to Z Surplus to buy and sell used material handling equipment through the closing of distribution centers on the East coast. Within three years A to Z closed distribution centers from Boston to Richmond and West to Chicago for notable companies as Love Distributors, Mr. Goodbyes, Best Products, R.S. Strauss, Raleigh Bikes and more. Lombardi broke away from A to Z in 92 to included servicing corporate offices, R&D facilities, bio and scientific laboratories, manufacturing plants and educational centers. For the next 25 years Lombardi continued closing all types of facilities for Measurement Specialties Inc. (MSI), Valspar Paints, RCA, J&J, Columbia University, Baltimore School District, USA Military DRMO sites and Westinghouse Defense better known today as Northrop Grumman Corporation Missile Defense.
The Westinghouse relationship introduced Lombardi to a wide array of recovery projects with extremely diverse types of equipment, materials and finished goods. The variety of inventories and the continuous flow required that EZ Liquidations, Inc. to develop quick adaptable sales, marketing and logistical processes in order to complete every project through to National and International markets quickly, orderly and effectively.
By the mid-90s the internet radicalized the Used commercial equipment industry with ease of information and the ability to network from his/her desk to across the country and eventually around the world. Also the networks and the new technologies gave the Used industry as did with other industries the ability to complete deals quickly and effectively. What's more, 'global' in all it glory is now a common term when doing business.
Following these new capabilities the Enron, Worldcom, Tyco and more financial scandals created enormous social pressures on corporate America. The result, the Sarbanes and Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002. With SOX two new world initiatives were born; accountability and sustainability. Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) reemerged as society now holds companies accountable for their actions specifically where they adversely affect communities. Then the Green movement turned-up the heat with the looming Climate Change threatening everything on the planet.
Standing in it for only a minute makes clear, waste in all its forms is a dirty word.
