Our material lifecycle framework helps to open a more strategic discussion with OEMs on how to manage electronic product lifecycles. We work with clients to develop programs that resourcefully recapture their financial investment in retired IT assets, yielding economic and environmental benefits. Discussions on how used equipment, smart parts recovery and redeployment can extend IT budgets can be useful in forecasting and procurement.
How We Do It
We reimagine supply chains, extend sustainable product design and resourcefully repurpose whole units and components. We refurbish, remanufacture and restore equipment and components for continued useful life. In addition to facilitating reuse of electronic equipment, we are a market leader in recovering clean recycled materials from retired electronics. Recycling diverts material from landfill or incineration and provides a feedstock for making next generation products. Regardless of whether equipment is reused or recycled, we always destroy data on storage media, adhering to relevant data destruction standards.
Circular Pathways for OEMs
SLS is committed to help drive circular economy initiatives with our clients. We help clients keep resources in use for as long as possible; extract the maximum value from those resources while in use; and then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of their useful life.
On behalf of our clients, SLS is responsible for discarded electronics. We work with manufacturers to manage reverse logistics and recover value from returned equipment. We resell whole units, manage spare parts recovery and responsibly recycle obsolete equipment. We also work with manufacturers in managing their extended producer responsibility requirements.
The range of after market services needed by electronics manufacturers can vary broadly from one manufaucturer to another. We listen to your unique requirements, make suggestions when appropriate and agree on program parameters. The program is documented and final processes are published and available across all SLS facilities.
