San Francisco-based Re-Teck says it can provide services to help product designers and manufacturers comply with “environmental sustainability initiatives [that] are becoming a critical necessity for progressive companies around the world.”

 

The company says appliance and electronics manufacturers must increasingly design products “with a cradle-to-cradle approach, taking into consideration the entire product life cycle.” Such companies are now working with Re-Teck as a strategic partner to help them navigate this “new world order,” says the firm.

 

Re-Teck says its Reverse Supply Chain Management (RCSM) technology and engineering service “enables the technology community to capitalize on cradle-to-cradle manufacturing” and to support economic development and environmental sustainability.

 

“At Re-Teck, we understand the importance of technology developed for closed-loop systems,” says Linda Li, chief strategy officer at Re-Teck. “As companies begin to rethink design and begin integrating repurposed or re-usable components, not only is it good for the environment, but it can drive economic growth by demonstrating their commitment to long-term sustainability efforts. With cradle-to-cradle manufacturing in mind, companies can develop products that can be fully recycled into materials they can use for products in the future.”

 

Re-Teck says its engineering teams consider the aftermarket value for devices, the primary market value for component parts, and extracts usable elements for repurposing to Re-Teck’s global partner exchange. The company says its end-to-end RSCM platform, being used by global brands including Microsoft, NEC, Amazon and Motorola, “provides a simple solution to a complex issue by eliminating the logistical, compliance, and technological issues of technology take-back initiatives.”

 

Re-Teck is the North American subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Li Tong Group (LTG), which describes itself as a global market leader in RSCM solutions for OEMs, enterprises, government, and consumers for the reuse, remanufacture and recovery of products and components including mobile devices, smart devices, data network and telecom equipment.
