EDS’ Asset Recovery Centers of America® unit owns/operates strategically located multipurpose venues for the storage and remarketing of recovered assets.

EDS’ flagship Recovery Center is the Port of Slidell in Slidell, Louisiana (Greater Gulf South, USA).


Today’s business climate and environmental concerns dictate that asset recovery activities must be handled by seasoned—practiced—experienced professionals who possess a keen appreciation of the legal exposures and environmental risks, and responsibilities that surround these activities.

It is often said that ‘liquidation is an art’ and that ‘art is in the eye of the beholder’. Think of a Picasso and a Velvet-Elvis. While both are appreciated by their respective audience as ‘art’—in both appreciation and value—they are worlds apart. To appreciate EDS' artistry in commercial loss mitigation—is to appreciate the difference.

We are not dot-com auctioneer's, used equipment jockeys or 'two-bubba's-and-a-truck'. EDS’ specialists are practiced-artists that provide secured creditors with the professional alternative.

EDS’ practiced commercial loss mitigation asset recovery methodology and techniques are commensurate with the client’s best interests. Our philosophy stipulates that with few exceptions, anything that goes to auction(eers) is regarded as a loss for the client. Our fee structure is incentive-based and promotes results that often exceed our client’s established goals. This insures the highest and best values for our clients’ in the conversion of their special situations and special assets to cash, and relieves them of the frustrations, limitations, and especially the risks so often associated with such questionable Velvet-Elvi'.

Our comprehensive commercial loss mitigation asset recovery services include 24/7/365 Receivers / Keepers, dismantling, shipping, storing, maintenance, repair, and remarketing. We are particularly skilled at handling marine-related machinery and equipment, land-based and floating assets e.g. inland vessels, workboats, barges, cranes, drilling equipment, marine equipment and cargoes along the Greater Gulf Coast of the United States at our flagship Recovery Center, the Port of Slidell. Our technicians are specifically trained in machinery and equipment removal and our practiced methods and procedures serve to protect and enhance the value of our client’s assets unlike equipment maulers so often associated with asset recovery activities.

EDS’ global asset remarketing efforts are handled by our polished market-makers who are particularly skilled in building markets and in seeking out and identifying end-user purchasers not middlemen nor dealers for secure private-treaty sales. These efforts translate into significantly greater returns for our clients. Remarketing can be accomplished either on-site or from one of our strategically located Investment Recovery Centers of America® venues.

The choice is yours… PICASSO OR VELVET-ELVIS
