This project was managed by Michael Lombardi, President and COO at ABCSI. The furniture consisted of 7-year old Haworth Race Systems. Initially, Jacobs thought it would cost them $20,000 to have the furniture removed. After just 50 days of planning, AB Commercial was able to get them $12,000 by finding a buyer for the furniture resulting in $34,000 savings to Jacobs.
Stantec, an architectural firm in NC, saved over $600,000 by purchasing the Haworth Race system refurbished rather than new as they had planned.
Not only does this type of liquidation save corporations money, it contributes to a greener earth and a reduced carbon footprint. “It keeps all that furniture out of a landfill and greatly reduces carbon omissions by reusing furniture. Our goal is to keep everything possible out of landfills and really dedicate ourselves to matching sellers and buyers so we can reduce, reuse and relocate items,” said Lombardi.

They buy and sell used and surplus office equipment and furniture, phones, computers, furniture, warehouse and more.

When companies relocate, reorganize, merge, lay-off, close facilities, or simply update equipment, they acquire large quantities of idle assets. This equipment takes up space or is simply discarded in a landfill. We turn these assets into cash by finding buyers that can make use of second-hand equipment. We also scrap and recycle obsolete assets to enable greener companies and keep everything possible out of the landfills.
Some of our clients include State Farm, GE, GMAC Financial, AT&T, ACE-INA, Advanta Bancorp and more.
