Though built on manufacturing, Cleveland, NEOhio and the Great Lakes Region have generated many new business sectors such as Health Care, Information Technology, Financial Services and so on. The Akron area has been dubbed "Polymer Valley," having the largest concentration of polymer companies in the United States such as Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., the world's largest tire company, which is headquartered in Akron. |
This section will feature a variety of businesses covering all the sectors.
Rebuilders Xchange (RBX)
Rebuilders Xchange (RBX) buys and sells construction material from ordinary to extraordinary. RBX is in the St. Clair-Superior neighborhood in an organized, 50,000 sq. ft. warehouse. (The address is 5401 Hamilton but it's easier to go North on East 53rd - their webiste has clear directions).
On the supply side, they work with local contractors and individuals who have access to overstock, new or salvaged building material. RBX inventories, markets, and sells dropped-off items. Once an item sells, RBX cuts the 'consignor' a check at the end of the month for 50% of each sale. Instead of dumping, donating or storing usable material; both businesses and individuals finally have a streamlined solution for making money.
On the demand side, they are open to the public 4 days a week! Customers have access to an ever-changing inventory of over 1,000's of new, unique, and vintage items.
