Company seeks to expand in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Chantilly, Va.-based Securis Inc.
, formerly PC Recycler, one of the Inc.
500 fastest growing companies in 2012, has announced the availability of new franchise territories in the Mid-Atlantic for its electronics recycling and data destruction services.
The company says it is establishing a nationwide network to serve the large and fast-growing electronics recycling and data security markets.
“We never want a single laptop, hard drive, smartphone, monitor or any other piece of electronics to be discarded in a way that disturbs our environment or puts company or government data at risk,” says Securis CEO and Founder Jeremy Farber. “By offering franchise opportunities in major markets, Securis will be able to serve hundreds of thousands of additional customers.”
In the U.S. alone, businesses, government agencies and consumers dispose of more than 180 million pieces of electronics gear annually, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates. An April 2013 report by Transparent Research estimates that the global market for electronics recycling and reuse services is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.2 percent and will reach more than $18 billion in 2017.
“Securis’ clients, including organizations in the federal government, financial services, health care and government contracting sectors, demand world-class data security and environmental stewardship,” Farber says. “Now, with our franchise expansion, qualified individuals who are interested in helping safeguard the environment as well as sensitive corporate data have the opportunity to be part of one of the most trusted brands in this growing and exciting space.”
Originally founded as PC Recycler in 2000, Securis provides information technology asset disposal (ITAD), including secure electronics recycling, auditing and data destruction services for PCs, hard drives, servers, monitors, printers and other electronics waste and data storage devices.
