Expanded IT Asset Disposition Services Offered by Sims Recycling Solutions

Five Year Strategic Plan Outlines Comprehensive Reuse and Recycling Services

WEST CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 16, 2014) - Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) is pleased to announce our expanding offerings with IT asset disposition (ITAD) services. This expansion will better meet the needs of our extensive customer base. Operating with sites across the United States and globally, SRS will continue to respond to our global customers by providing integrated solutions to responsibly manage IT asset disposition services in all countries in which our customers operate.

SRS formally announced this evolution on July 22, as part of the five year strategic plan introduced by Sims Metal Management (SMM). Sims Recycling Solutions is a business of Sims Metal Management. The strategic plan outlines restructuring at both SMM and SRS in response to changing demand in our respective markets.

Sims Recycling Solutions has always looked to the future to service customer needs and offer secure and compliant solutions. We have adapted and formalized business processes and capabilities to provide a single coordinated service delivery model for our global customers. These changes have enabled Sims to deliver a more tightly integrated and consistent service to customers with multiple locations.

"We are continuing to align our short and long term strategies to coincide with the needs of our customers," said Sean Magann, vice president of sales and marketing. "The recycling and ITAD industry is going through a maturation phase and SRS is committed to remain a reliable resource for our customers."

"Few companies have the infrastructure to support a global ITAD program. Customers gain efficiencies in using a standardized service and are better able to meet corporate and legislative compliance requirements," stated Steve Skurnac, president of Sims Recycling Solutions. "Our knowledge of international markets and regulations allows us to protect our customers from fines, fees and penalties and more importantly adverse publicity in the responsible disposition of their assets."

Sims' superior performance in offering global resell, redeployment and recycling services was recognized in Gartner's most recent Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide. Sims Recycling Solutions was positioned in the Leaders of the Magic Quadrant by Gartner. According to the Gartner report, "Leaders execute well against a robust vision, and are well-positioned for the future."

Consistent with our continued strategic focus on IT asset disposition services for businesses, SRS in 2014 discontinued operations at several owned and operated facilities in Canada and U.K. that focused on recycling services for municipalities. Resources from these discontinued operations will be reinvested in supporting and growing the IT asset disposition business.
