Greening Up the Construction Industry and Forging Partnerships

Recent Partnerships with ABC, AGC, IEC and ASA Proving Valuable to Associations

WESTIMINSTER, CO -- Following up on its strong introduction at World of Concrete in January, and living up to media clams as "The Craig's List for Construction," unveiled the latest version of their website at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Between ZamRay's January introduction and the CONEXPO show, the company has found a hungry niche within the world of construction-based associations. In the past eight weeks, ZamRay has created partnership agreements with dozens of AGC, ABC, IEC and ASA chapters throughout the United States. They've also developed customers such as Rexel, one of the industry's largest electrical distributors. The driving factor for this growth has been meeting a critical unmet need of the organizations, which is assisting with dead inventory. The organizations also value ZamRay's inherently green solution. To date, ZamRay has over 24,000 postings on its website.

ZamRay's primary service allows contractors to place their surplus inventory into a construction-only, online, and proprietary classified advertising marketplace. This effectively opens up the surplus materials to thousands of prospective buyers across the United States. Buyers can search by material type, geography or price. As a member of the United States Green Building Council, the intrinsically green solution from ZamRay is ideal because it keeps excess inventory out of the landfills and in proper use situations. Plus, the days of losing money on dead inventory are now over.

And while ZamRay is ideal for excess inventory, it also allows companies to buy and sell construction equipment, vehicles and real estate. Furthermore, ZamRay allows companies and individuals to post resumes or jobs, join the service directory for future project bid opportunities and obtain access to industry-related articles and news among other benefits. A detailed list of ZamRay's benefits includes:

  • Buy/sell surplus construction materials and supplies (new and used)
  • Buy/sell construction equipment and vehicles (new and used)
  • Post/view jobs and resumes
  • Nationwide service directory to promote your company
  • Access to construction industry news, article, events, forums and information
  • A green solution by re-using surplus material compared to it ending up in the landfill

For new members, provides a cost-effective means to use the site. The first four ads posted on are free after paying for the initial ad. The initial ad is $24.99 for a 90-day period. Guests can search the site for free looking for materials, supplies, vehicles, jobs or other construction items.

"We are excited to have ZamRay a part of the IEC team. They have a visionary new construction industry website that offers a full suite of services for contractors. ZamRay is a great portal for buying and selling surplus materials-supporting reclaimed, green building practices-in addition to finding out about upcoming events, and so much more," said Spenser Villwock, MNM, LEED AP, Executive Director of IEC Rocky Mountain.

"We are tremendously pleased with how well received ZamRay has been with the construction associations." Said Kurt Fisher, managing partner at ZamRay. "Win-win can be an overused term. But, we really see value for all entities and the industry as a whole."
