(2008-2010), by over 1000%.  "2010 represented a turning point for NorAm.  We expanded our reach into the reverse logistics space, becoming a leader in the direct to consumer sales of media products, consumer electronics, and our ever expanding offerings of other consumer categories," says Michael DuGally, CEO and Founder.  "Being a vertically integrated third party logistics provider, combined with a focus on lean manufacturing in all aspects of our operations, NorAm is able to offer best in class services to our retail partners.  More importantly, we consistently deliver to consumers the lowest cost access to quality used, refurbished and overstock products," continues DuGally.
