N2S, business which recycles IT equipment, has announced further expansion with new sites in Berkshire and Nottinghamshire as well as extending its Bury St Edmunds facility.
The new Reading site of approximately 13,500 sq ft, opening in mid-October, “will be a centre of excellence for the refurbishment and resale of pre-used IT equipment”. These include servers, PCs, laptops and mobiles, with an immediate staffing of 15 experienced technicians, sales personnel and administrators.
Huthwaite near Mansfield will see N2S opening a 50,000 sq. ft facility in early November. The company will transfer 20 staff from the current Mansfield distribution centre operation and up to another 30 by Easter 2022. This additional site will be a recycling and recovery facility for IT and telecoms equipment.
N2S is also expanding its Suffolk-based facility by 10,000 sq. ft to cope with the increase in volume.
“E-waste continues to be a growing challenge,” said Andy Gomarsall, chairman of N2S. “Our aim is to increase the overall recovery rates in the UK market which have been going backwards in the last few years. Our new facilities will bring the extra capacity we need now and in the foreseeable future to support continued demand from customers for the recovery, refurbishment and resale of pre-existing IT products. Additionally, for processing equipment beyond repair prior to it undergoing N2S’ patented bioleaching refining and recycling process at our main facility in Bury St Edmunds.”
N2S recently announced a significant recruitment drive to fill more than 100 new job vacancies anticipated over the next 12 months. This has followed rapidly increasing demand from large UK businesses, government departments and local authorities for the company’s highly sustainable ITAD and technology lifecycle solutions.
