Brockport-based Sunnking Inc. has purchased new equipment to help the firm become more efficient in dealing in end-of-life electronic equipment, officials said.
The company moved to a new 204,000 square-foot facility in November.
“End-of-life electronics and equipment are a growing global concern,” CEO Duane Beckett said. “We are excited about our new equipment because it helps us accomplish our mission to provide superior asset management and recovery services. We use proven reuse and recycling techniques that maximize asset value and promote environmental sustainability, while meeting data sanitation requirements of our clients.”
The new machinery includes a shredder that reduces the material to uniform size, and a classifier that automatically separates magnetic from non-magnetic metals. This automation takes far less time than processing the materials manually, resulting in higher volumes of material being processed over time, and increased profits, the company said.
Sunnking is the state’s first R2-certified electronics recycling, data destruction, and information technology asset management company. R2, or responsible recycling, is a voluntary certification specific to the electronics recycling industry, establishing requirements relating to environmental, health, safety and security.
