Ruffin Trading Company (GA)
Atlanta, GA

Founded in 2000, Ruffin Trading Company was
created to make value from non-productive
inventories in the building supply industry.

The company's first trade, valued over 1.7 million
dollars, was transacted through a subcontract with
the largest corporate trade house in the world,
Active International.

On discovering a need for a more
industry-relevant trade return to its clients, Ruffin
Trading Company then positioned to manage its
own clients and distribution. The company soon
took in a selection of building supply distributors
whose sales put them in the top fifty independent
building supply companies in the US at that time.

Ruffin Trading then built its first trade bridge into
the country of Jamaica, by sending building
materials and taking payment in Blue Mountain
coffee and resort space.

Subsequently Ruffin traded into other countries
including France, Scotland, Argentina, and
Ruffin Trading then worked to assimilate its
operations into the trade industry by connecting
transactions related to fulfillment of its clients'
contracts into the regional retail trade houses who
operate as banks for the trade. Over a five year
period the company tested this new trade form and
successfully integrated with retail trade houses
including Nubarter and others.

The Ruffin Trading corporate trade model was
used to research new technologies for trade, and
the specific statistical return to information
currency using the technology "Item Banc".

Ruffin Trading is still primarily leveraged for
trade with building materials, but now takes
strategic clients as corporate trade partners in a
myriad of industries.
