International Relocates its East Coast Facility”
From Metech International, Inc.
July 11, 2005
MA - Metech International, a leading electronics recycling
company, has relocated its East Coast headquarters and operations
from Rhode Island to a new facility in Worcester, Massachusetts.
This move was completed on July 1.
Metech, which has been in Rhode Island since 1973, has been
seeking a new location for several years to support its increased
growth and to improve processing efficiency.
“The electronics recycling business is a growing field,
and we need to take steps to ensure we’re positioned to
capitalize on these expanding opportunities,” said Andrew
McManus, General Manager at Metech. “We’re changing
our business model to become more efficient and while we’re
sorry to leave Rhode Island, this relocation will help streamline
our operations and expand our capacity.”
As part of the move, the company will consolidate all of its
precious metals recovery operations to its Gilroy, California
plant, which will continue to recycle electronic equipment as
well. To support this consolidation, we are launching a Capital
Improvement Program for the California site that will improve
our materials flow and increase roasting capacity.
The Worcester facility will maintain some precious metal processing
capabilities, but will focus on recycling electronics such as
personal computers, wired and cellular phone systems, data processing
and office equipment and is adding new shredding and other processing
equipment to expand its capacity.
Metech is a leading recycler of electronic industrial manufacturing
scrap, obsolete inventory, and end-of-life electronics. Through
its Accountable Resource Management® and Total Consumption
Recycling® protocols, the company recovers valuable assets
such as precious metals for clients, and arranges the reuse,
recycling or environmentally responsible disposal of all materials.
Metech holds ISO 9001: and ISO 14001 certification at both of
its facilities, and is also certified by IAER (International
Association of Electronics Recyclers).
Metech’s new address will be:
150 Blackstone River Road, Suite M
Worcester, MA 01607
Phone: (508) 795-1950 or 1-888-638-2761.
