Where ARCA Steps InClients of ARCA save time and money by allowing us to manifest, sell and recycle their unwanted, obsolete, return, and surplus material. Status quo liquidation methodology is highly fragmented and often provides organizations with little financial return, and even less brand integrity. Instead, clients of ARCA focus on running their businesses while we get the highest returns for their materials. Everything we do is done with transparency and the latest environmentally conscious standards such as R2.

“Love, love, love, the reporting. It saves me hours.”

ARCA evaluated and planned for the resources needed to accept and process tens of thousands of SKUs on an annual basis. ARCA also researched and prepared the necessary customer base and recycling partners to meet the specific needs of the client. ARCA’s appraisal process made the financial outcomes predictable.
ARCA processes over 10,000 new SKUs into our system for this ongoing project annually. We also warehouse and distribute over 100,000 individual pieces of this inventory to our customers each year. All of this movement is tracked and reconciled back to the individual shipment ARCA received, while saving the client over 3,000 man hours and 20,000 square feet.

“ARCA was quick and responsive.”
Public Sector Semiconductor Manufacturer
ARCA acted immediately to accurately evaluate the market value of the equipment and the required logistical efforts to complete the project. The cost to relocate this equipment outweighed its value. Although brand new, the equipment would have been destined for a scrap yard. ARCA appraisal revealed that taking over the clients facility was the best route.
Within 30 days, ARCA dispatched a team to a new city and took over operation of the facility that stored the surplus equipment. All 400 pieces of equipment were properly documented, inspected, weighed and pictured for resale into the market. All progress was efficiently documented for the clients peace of mind.
Before the deadline, ARCA found a buyer for every last piece of equipment. The sales, service, and logistics were hands-off for the client. The financial gain from this equipment was considerably larger than the scrap or liquidation income and the client regained full-use of their facility before expected.
Factory construction plans were put on pause. The equipment that was pre-purchased and stored for future expansion was now non-useful surplus and taking up considerable space required for something else. There was less than a 6-month deadline before the equipment would have to be scrapped.Read Full Success Story
“ARCA is a pleasure to deal with and they make our lives much easier.”
Public Sector Tire Manufacturer
ARCA researched the necessary requirements to recycle tire waste. This included the land and sea logistics for over 325 overweight shipments per year. ARCA developed a proposal and catered it to reflect the most important needs of the factory.
In manufacturing, costs are critical and misused space is an unnecessary cost to the goods being made. It was critical that the tire factory was able to remove all waste from their facility the day it was generated. ARCA delivered the trucking and warehousing to make this possible.
Natural rubber, blends, polyethylene, steel, nylon and sometimes a mix of all, require different vendors and processes to recycle properly. ARCA seamlessly manages and evaluates these customers for the most financial benefit to the tire factory while protecting their IP with a zero-landfill solution.
