A Cork company has agreed a new alliance with a Dubai company for the disposal and recycling of old computer equipment.

Wisetek in Dublin Hill has offices throughout the world and specialise in the safe disposal of IT equipment and the secure destruction of private data.

The company has announced a new, multi-year strategic alliance with Enviroserve – naming the Dubai, UAE based recycling company as its exclusive service partner for the Middle East Region.

This joint partnership operation is located at the new 280,000 square foot electronic waste processing plant, The Recycling Hub, located in Dubai Industrial City in the UAE. 

The Recycling Hub is the world’s largest integrated electronic and specialised waste recycling facility and is in its final stages of commissioning.

Wisetek’s expansion into Dubai, which will be the company’s primary hub for the Middle East and Africa region, is a new milestone in development of its international footprint.

Sean Sheehan, CEO, Wisetek said: “We are delighted to partner with Enviroserve and to work with their new integrated recycling facility in Dubai and furthermore to collaborate with the company for the Middle East and Africa region. Through this exclusive partnership we are able to offer value recovery, secure data destruction and responsible recycling services of retired IT equipment across the entire region.” 

The Recycling Hub is a key piece of infrastructure in the Middle East and Africa’s e-waste recycling industry and supports the UAE Vision 2021 and the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.

“This is a terrific and well-timed partnership. Wisetek is a respected name in the industry and bring a wealth of experience to the Enviroserve service offer,” noted Stuart Fleming, Enviroserve Group CEO.

Wisetek has previously expanded into the United States where it is located in Maryland, Massachusetts, Virginia, Texas and California. The company also has a facility in Thailand, which is a platform to expand further into South-East Asian markets. In January of this year, Wisetek announced its opening in the UK market with a facility in Reading.
