Major Agreement Inked Between American Subcontractors Association and ZamRay.com

Signing Marks Second Major Milestone in Two Weeks Coming on the Heels of LEED Certification Announcement

WESTIMINSTER, CO--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - Following a successful CONEXPO-CON/AGG tradeshow, ZamRay.com continues its momentum with its announcement of a nationwide agreement with the American Subcontractors Association (ASA). The agreement will effectively allow all ASA members access to ZamRay's on-line construction toolkit through their respective local ASA chapters. Each participating ASA chapter will receive financial benefits from every member that signs up and uses the ZamRay.com service. This newly formed relationship provides benefits for all parties involved. 

ZamRay.com has been experiencing exponential growth since its inception in January 2011. The driving factor for this growth has been meeting a critical unmet need of organizations, which is assisting with dead inventory. The organizations also value ZamRay's inherently green solution and keeping materials out of landfills. In fact, in another major announcement last week, ZamRay.com has been identified to deliver up to four points for LEED certification. ASA members using ZamRay.com can help projects achieve LEED success.

ZamRay's primary service will allow ASA members 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. The intrinsically green solution from ZamRay, a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, 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 will allow members 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

Anyone doing business in the construction industry can buy or sell on ZamRay. First time incentives provide ads as buy one, get four ads free. After the initial ads, placements are just $24.99 / 90 days for anyone. And, ASA members get an additional 15% off all ads as part of the agreement.

"We are tremendously excited to work with ASA on a national level," said Kurt Fisher, managing partner for ZamRay. "ZamRay.com will allow subcontractors to perform their jobs more effectively while providing financial benefits to participating chapters. It's a win for all involved."

"This timely agreement offers ASA members greater reach, flexibility and efficiency in buying and selling equipment and other items -- exactly the kind of sensible cash-flow solutions subcontractors are looking for right now," said ASA Executive Vice President E. Colette Nelson, Alexandria, Va. "We're eager for members and chapters to start benefiting by working with Zamray."
