Article-Sims Buys E-Waste Recycling Firm Genesis

Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) has acquired electronics recycling firm Genesis Recycling Ltd. for an undisclosed amount.

The Chicago-based subsidiary of Sims Metal Management Ltd. of Sydney said in a news release that the acquisition of Genesis, based in Langley, British Columbia, outside of Vancouver, expands the company’s e-waste recycling business. Genesis provides recycling services to business, government and industrial customers in British Columbia for electronics and small appliances.

 “We are excited to have the Genesis team join the SRS family,” said Steve Skurnac, president of SRS, Americas. “With our strong presence in Ontario and eastern Canada, this acquisition was an attractive opportunity for SimsMM to enter western Canada and further strengthen its North America SRS electronics recycling business.”
