Restore Technology promises ‘smarter, cleaner, greener’ IT disposal solutions following shock Arrow withdrawal
UK technology recycling industry at a critical moment as leading UK provider promises to offer an improved service to vendors abandoned by the departure of the Arrow Electronics ITAD division
Restore Technology has issued a call to action for customers seeking IT waste disposal support following the the shock announcement that rival Arrow Electronics is closing its ITAD business.
The decision by Arrow to wind down its ITAD operations has left customers reeling, with the company terminating its related agreements. Arrow’s CEO said that the business was ‘not sustainable’ over the long term and no longer aligned with the company’s wider strategy. In response to the announcement, Restore Technology is offering former Arrow customers the opportunity for a seamless transfer for ITAD services in the UK.
The company already has an extensive network of high-quality services, expertise and experience in providing ITAD solutions to a large customer base. The ITAD industry is seeing a major increase in business following high profile incidents of data loss which have led to companies incurring huge fines under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Just this week Marriott International is facing a £100 million due to a data loss incident which put customers at risk. Steve Talbot, MD of Restore Technology said: “It’s astonishing that at a time when sustainable and secure IT disposal solutions and are a top priority for UK companies, Arrow has chosen to cut and run, leaving its customers in the lurch.
"The decision is even more baffling when business leaders are crying out for environmentally friendly services to enhance their green credentials and terrified of falling foul of data security regulation such as the GDPR. Our ITAD programme offers customers state-of-the-art facilities for smarter, cleaner and greener tech disposal, whether it’s IT recycling, destruction or resale.”
Charles Bligh, CEO of Restore said, "The ITAD market calls for highly secure, dependable companies operating with care and efficiency. Our Technology business is exceptional in this regard, able to deliver consistently excellent services along with a high level of support and sustainability.” Restore Technology is one of only six to be accredited with the ADISA Distinction with Honours for carrying out ITAD services at the very highest level.
