The 7 R’s to maximize equipment & plant value

Reuse Assets that are reused within an organization offer the best ROI by reducing capital, depreciation, taxes, and insurance costs.

Resell Some surplus or retired assets can be re-sold and re-used as spares, backup equipment or replacement parts globally.  All avenues are explored with our vast network, to maximize asset value.

ReconditionMany recovered assets can be recovered, refurbished, and put back into service as an alternative to purchasing new.

Reclaim AMS Group safely and routinely reclaims solvents, chemicals, lubricants, refrigerants, hydraulic fluid, glycols, etc., during demolition and dismantling projects, and many of these substances can be reused to reduce waste and preserve the environment.

ReturnEquipment, parts, materials and supplies recovered from dismantling, relocation and demolition projects can often be returned to the manufacturer or vendor for cash or future credit.

RecycleKeeping waste out of landfills saves disposal costs, generates income, and preserves resources. Recyclable materials generated by decommissioning include metal, brick, concrete, cardboard, gypsum wallboard, plastic, wood, glass, carpet and insulation.

Remove The simple act of removal of excess or idle assets lowers the tax base and increases returns on capital.
