Sprout, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based information technology asset disposition (ITAD) and electronics recycling company, has announced the opening of a new facility near Boston. The expansion is intended to better service what the company says is its growing Northeast customer base.
At the new Boston facility, Sprout will provide a range of software-driven disposition services for original equipment manufacturers, distributors and integrators and enterprise end-users.
Alex Cummings, Sprout marketing specialist, says the Boston plant measures 44,000 square feet and is strategically located near I-95 and I-84. "Currently, our facility will have four dock doors with two complete ITAD processing lines with the capability to add a half dozen more lines if necessary," he says.
The primary ITAD services the facility offers include data erasure, asset serialization, physical destruction, remarketing, redeployment and decommissioning, Cummings says. Electronics recycling services include mixed materials triage, streamlined device teardown and automated material separation.
The area also gives the company access to a highly educated and skilled workforce. Sprout will employ a dozen people between the office and warehouse in Boston, Cummings says.
"We are 100 percent committed to data security and delivering operational excellence," says Sena Yuret, vice president of global site operations at Sprout. "Our customers in the Boston area care about the same things, and we intend to root even deeper partnerships together with our move here."
With the addition of the Boston facility, Sprout says it now has four total processing facilities across the United States in addition to partnerships that span the globe. In addition to the Boston location, its U.S. operations are in Statesville, North Carolina; Woodland, California; and Dallas. These established facilities are Responsible Recycling Practices (R2), ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified.
