IT asset disposal (ITAD) and tech lifecycle management company N2S has announced it will be opening new facilities in Reading and Mansfield, as well as expanding its Bury St Edmunds site.
The Reading site will open mid-October, followed by Mansfield in November. Once completed, Reading will provide a 13,500 sqft facility for the refurbishment and resale of pre-used IT equipment.
The 50,000 sqft Mansfield site will also offer recycling and recovery services for IT and telecoms equipment.
Meanwhile in Suffolk, N2S’ Bury St Edmunds facility is to be expanded by 10,000 sqft to cope with the increase in workload
The expansion comes as the company sees a rapid increase in demand for its services, as large UK businesses, government departments and local authorities seek sustainable ITAD and technology lifecycle solutions.
“E-waste continues to be a growing challenge. Our aim is to increase the overall recovery rates in the UK market which have been going backwards in the last few years,” said Andy Gomarsall MBE, Chairman of N2S.
“Our new facilities will bring the extra capacity we need now and in the foreseeable future to support continued demand from customers for the recovery, refurbishment and resale of pre-existing IT products. Additionally, for processing equipment beyond repair prior to it undergoing N2S’ patented bioleaching refining and recycling process at our main facility in Bury St Edmunds.
“Our turnover has doubled in the last year as we respond to the growing market opportunities for sustainably extending the life of IT equipment while also helping customers to effectively cut carbon emissions and achieve their environmental sustainability goals (ESGs) more quickly.”
