In an effort to reduce carbon footprints, businesses are taking advantage of environmentally positive options for asset disposal. OLS Trading, having successfully completed green dispositions for Altria, Ernst & Young, LandAmerica, and IBM, is noticing greater demand for their environmentally aware models. This week alone, KPMG, American Red Cross, and Wells Fargo have engaged OLS in part because of its innovative AESI Process™, designed to maximize return and minimize expenses while eliminating the liquidated fixtures, furniture, and electronics that are typically disposed of in landfills.

OLS's AESI Process™ employs asset matching, cross-pollination, online competitive bidding, and simultaneous multi-location sales to reduce environmental impact, target and attract consumers, permit sellers to bypass middle men, and return increased value while assuring that lesser value items have a greater potential for sale than the landfill.

Companies involved in rightsizing, mergers, acquisitions or relocation are often faced with excess assets. OLS encourages early and timely collaboration with disposition experts enabling clients to formulate plans to maximize returns, minimize expenses, and reduce the impact on the environment. David Cornblatt, CEO of OLS, explains his planet-friendly approach:

"Companies often feel their assets are worth only pennies on the dollar. Because of this belief, they often postpone addressing the disposition of assets until the 11th hour -- thus realizing their own worse fears and receiving pennies on the dollar. OLS is changing this mindset. Clients now typically engage us as early as two years in advance of their target disposition date. This affords time to truly partner with clients in establishing optimal sale time frames, scenarios, and budgeting. Without adequate planning time to implement sale strategies, it is not uncommon for a project to be negatively impacted by as much as a $100,000."

This partnering approach enables OLS to optimize and manage the services for clients busy with renovations, relocations, closings, mergers, or acquisitions. OLS has nine disposition models -- private treaty sales, export, online auction, and employee sale. Dispositions models are tailored to maximize the client's outcome thus optimizing returns on a wide variety of assets from office furniture, business equipment, generators, and art to restaurant equipment.

"I am very proud of the relationships we have with our clients and the environment. It is rewarding for me to see how our clients treat us as partners, not just another vendor …and the outcome is the proof," says OLS Trading, Inc. CEO David Cornblatt.
