New business models boost capacity at Dubai-based e-scrap recycler

Electronics recycler Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) in Dubai has moved to a larger site due to what it describes as ‘overwhelming demand’ for its services in the UAE. The new facility, located at the Jebel Ali industrial park in south Dubai, is four times larger.

‘We had outgrown our previous facility,’ says Stephen Phelan, managing director for SRS Middle East and North Africa. ‘Material was arriving faster than we could process it. The new larger facility enables us to enhance our service portfolio, cut lead times, and better positions us for the growing demand of e-scrap recycling and IT asset disposition services in the region.’

Let’s refurbish

Besides the recycling of electronic products, SRS offers digital data destruction services, including serial number capturing and complete reporting. According to Phelan, this will benefit their customer’s sustainability and data security goals, and provide ‘better cost-saving opportunities as some of the devices can be refurbished and given a second life: the best of both worlds.’

The new site is some five kilometres from the former location and can be found at Warehouses LIU10 BB01-BB03, Jebel Ali Free Zone South, Dubai, UAE.
