Secure a better future for your surplus assets

How It All Started

A Market Opportunity

In the late 1990s, Bill Angrick and the founding team saw an opportunity to transform an underserved market. Billions of dollars of surplus and idle assets were underappreciated and underutilized within the world's supply chains. Bill realized this surplus was a potential growth opportunity for end users and businesses. Since most reverse supply chain processes were decentralized, reactive, low-visibility, and low-tech, he also saw the chance to revolutionize how surplus assets were managed. The reverse supply chain could and should be optimized like a core business function to fully capture the value that endures within every surplus asset.

 

An Idea for Innovation

Bill's vision began with a basic but profound innovation to the status quo. By making it easy for end users, entrepreneurs, and small businesses to securely connect with the millions of surplus and idle assets residing in the world's supply chains, everyone would win—buyers, sellers, and the planet. With this simple idea, Liquidity Services' first online marketplace for surplus assets was launched.
