Sims Recycling Solutions Becomes a U.S. Certified Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher
Feb 05, 2013
Company Now Approved to Install Microsoft Software on Refurbished PCs and Servers
Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, today announced it has become a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR) program partner in the United States. Sims can now offer customers fully operational refurbished desktop and laptop computers running genuine Microsoft software.
Sims Recycling Solutions has years of experience professionally refurbishing computers and servers using best practices in data security and environmental responsibility. However, the MAR certification enables Sims to sell a more complex and sustainable product because these devices will now come equipped pre-installed with the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
“Sims Recycling Solutions has maintained this Microsoft partnership in Europe since 2011 and last year became the largest MAR in Europe, the Middle East and Africa based on Windows 7 sales,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “After the success Sims experienced with its MAR program in EMEA, it was only natural to want to expand the program to the United States so we can offer our customers here the same competitive refurbishment service. We can now provide a quality product at a great value while also extending the life of an electronic device.”
“The Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher team is pleased to be expanding globally with Sims to deliver high quality refurbished personal computers with genuine operating system software in a sustainable manner both in Europe and the U.S. markets,” stated Chris Acker, WW MAR Program Director.
The Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher program is for large refurbishers headquartered worldwide who meet a minimum average threshold of PCs shipped per month. Refurbishers in the program professionally refurbish desktop and laptop computers with genuine Microsoft software.
