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.
After 20 years removing and installing industrial project that included cryogenic food and chemical processing, material handling systems, trash-to-steam & generation and elevators projects Founder, Mike Lombardi and a team of colleagues opened A to Z Surplus to buy and sell used material handling equipment. The equipment was obtained through closing distribution centers on the East coast. Within three years A to Z closed warehouses from Boston to Richmond and West to Chicago. Some notable companies such as Love Distributors, Mr. Goodbyes, Best Products, R.S. Strauss, Raleigh Bikes and more were clients. In 92 Lombardi broke away from A to Z to service and liquidate equipment from bio and scientific laboratories, manufacturing plants, R&D centers, semiconductor, educational centers and corporate offices. For the next 25 years Lombardi continued liquidating all types of equipment, inventories and materials for Measurement Specialties Inc. (MSI), Phoenix Mutual Life, Valspar Paints, RCA, J&J, Columbia University, Baltimore School District, several Military DRMO sites and Westinghouse Defense, better known today as Northrop Grumman Corporation Missile Defense.
The Westinghouse relationship introduced Lombardi to recovering value in industrial surplus and waste of all types. Win win was definitely a collaborative approach that produced better double edged benefits for everyone. EZ Liquidations facilitated the deals by helping to turn a cost center with depreciating equipment values to a review stream and reducing Westinghouse's annual expenses.
These surplus inventories were unique with diverse sizes, types of equipment, materials and finished goods. The co variety of goods and the continuous flow required EZ Liquidations, Inc. to develop quick adaptable sales, marketing and logistical processes to complete 'every' project through to National and International markets quickly, orderly and on time.
Our accomplishments were celebrated by all parties involved.
By the mid-90s the internet had already monetized the Used Equipment industry with its ease of information and the ability to network from one's desk across the country and around the world. Just-in-time for things to come the Used industry's activities sky-rocketed to a few new levels and 'global' became a common term when doing business anywhere.
Following these new capabilities the Enron, Worldcom, Tyco and more financial scandals created enormous social pressures on corporate America. The result was the Sarbanes and Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002. With SOX two new world initiatives were born; Accountability and Sustainability. Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) reemerged from leverage created by SOX and following shortly behind The Green Movement turned-up the heat with the looming climate change threatening everything on our planet.
No matter who you are and where you live waste; its a dirty word.
Sweeping it under the rug is no longer an appropriate response to waste with new service provider, suppliers, partners, markets and mechanisms to move nearly any piece of equipment to anywhere in the world. It is no longer a matter just doing asset recovery but indoctrinate the purpose, gain the benefits and keep a good public image so you can tout being socially conscious. ABcsi's approach is "know where your waste is going before it becomes waste". We want to help show you ways to win in the multiple spheres surrounding waste. Just ask. Please?
Standing in waste for only a second rings clearly; waste in all forms is always a dirty word.
