Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS), a global provider of electronics recycling and IT asset disposition (ITAD) services, announced it has moved to a new facility with more warehouse space in Tampa, Fla. The new site will provide SRS with better operational layouts and more efficient operations.
"As our lease expiration was approaching, we saw an opportunity to upgrade facilities," said Sean Magann, global vice president of sales and marketing at SRS, in a statement. "The new operational layout enables us to have a higher throughput, which will benefit clients—especially if they have projects that they are ready to expand."
Features of the newer construction include:
- Tilt panel concrete walls (designed to prevent intrusion)
- Improved electrical power (meets SRS secure shredding requirements)
- Testing and auditing lines (needed for clients requiring advanced recycling, auditing and testing capabilities)
According to the company, these upgrades meet current ISO 27001 and TAPA security standards and allow SRS to efficiently process mixed loads under one roof. Shredding and recycling activities will be separated from the advanced IT testing and refurbishment, but it will all be housed in the new facility. This will reduce the burden on clients and improve logistics, as they will not need to segregate equipment prior to shipping, according to SRS.
The new site, located at 3401 Cragmont Drive in Tampa, is approximately four miles from the former location.
