As we close out 2013, we are happy to once again receive a ranking on the prestigious list of companies named to the Washington Post’s annual “Post 200” list. Our climb up this list (Liquidity Services was ranked #59 in 2012) is a tribute to the outstanding contributions of our team members around the globe, delivering the best results for our clients across a number of verticals. We have come a long way since our founding in 1999, and it is tremendously rewarding to continue to lead and transform the reverse supply chain. Although our headquarters are in Washington D.C., we have offices across North America, Europe, and Asia serving our clients and buyers in more than 200 countries and territories. To date, more than 3.8 million transactions for surplus assets and inventory have been processed through our online marketplaces, spurring our growth and market leadership.
As a team, we are committed to growth through relentless improvement to capture maximum value for our clients in industries such as biopharma, energy, manufacturing, government, transportation and retail. With a culture focused on mutual trust and accountability, we embrace innovation in both individual and collective performance. These are just a few of our core values here at Liquidity Services that drive our award-winning success. We are proud to move up the Post 200 list and excited to continue implementing best practices and cutting-edge technology to lead our industry.
