Ideal Surplus Delivers More than Promises

29 Jul , 2016  

Surplus PIc

At 9:30 am on June 22, 2016, Ideal Surplus received a call from a leading tire manufacturer located in Ardmore, OK, about 100 miles north of Dallas, TX. With a machine down, the tire company turned to Surplus as they possessed the circuit board needed to get the machine up and running again. Their equipment had been down since 7 pm the previous day and they desperately needed to resolve the issue. This particular machine produced parts that fed not only their plant, but several other plants as well. Soon they would be out of parts, threatening production at multiple facilities. More…

????????????????????????????????????

In the three years since Kelly Starrett began working with Ideal Shield, many have come to know her and enjoy working with her. In December of 2013, Ideal Shield hired Kelly as a web designer but in the course of three years she has developed into Ideal Shield’s webmaster “guru”. Ah, but what is a webmaster? In Kelly’s words, for the best explanation, a webmaster typically means a person who maintains or updates content on websites, as well as customizing design and development of a website. More…

Ideal Surplus was fortunate enough to have the assistance of two interns during the immense duty of revamping the Surplus facility. Christopher Lara and Richard Zarate started with the task of folding boxes for parts and then switched to adding those items to the accounting and inventory management program. Happy to work during their Christmas and spring breaks, both interns learned more about the software while advancing their computer skills. Christopher and Richard were very helpful in assisting the company with their eBay account, cycle counting, parts receiving, and box making.  Richard said, “I’ve learned so much from working at Ideal Surplus. I’ve come to acknowledge how multiple individual tools/equipment is important and worth a lot. I’ve also learned how many types of motors, electronics, transformers, and etc. work”. More…
