Recently our sister company in the US, EPC Inc, opened a brand new state-of-the-art recycling centre in Wright City, Missouri. The new $5m, 104,000ft2 facility replaces the existing operation in Earth City, fitting current requirements and allowing for future growth within the business.
EPC’s Wright City recycling centre allows space for a $1.7m magnetic optical sorter shredding machine which includes smart technology, automating the process of sorting and decommissioning computer equipment and eliminating the associated human risks. The machine also has the capability to learn processes and improve performance based on logging and avoiding its previous mistakes. The implementation of this piece of equipment positions EPC at the top level of technology recycling facilities in the United States.
The new facility currently employs 70 people, with plans to grow by an additional 20 employees in the next 12 months. The project was self-funded through operations and our parent company CSI Leasing.
Our congratulations go out to EPC on their expansion.
