Franchises for E-Waste Recycling and Data Destruction Services
Inc. 500 “fastest growing” company expanding to establish nationwide network to serve growing electronics recycling and data security markets
Chantilly, VA, May 29, 2013 – Securis, Inc., a leader in electronics recycling and data destruction services, announced today that it is offering franchise opportunities in multiple new markets throughout the mid-Atlantic region. The company’s franchising strategy is part of Securis’ national expansion to serve the growing demand for electronics recycling and data destruction services, a market that is between $6 billion to over $9 billion globally, according to estimates by IDC and Transparent Research.
“We never want a single laptop, hard drive, smartphone, monitor or any other piece of electronics to be discarded in a way that disturbs our environment or puts company or government data at risk,” said Securis CEO and Founder Jeremy Farber. “By offering franchise opportunities in major markets, Securis will be able to serve hundreds of thousands of additional customers.”
In the U.S. alone, businesses, government agencies and consumers dispose of more than 180 million pieces of electronics gear annually, according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates. An April 2013 report by Transparent Research estimates that the global market for e-waste recycling and reuse services is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.2% and will reach more than $18 billion in 2017.
“Securis’ clients, including organizations in the Federal government, financial services, healthcare and government contracting sectors, demand world-class data security and environmental stewardship,” said Farber. “Now, with our franchise expansion, qualified individuals who are interested in helping safeguard the environment as well as sensitive corporate data have the opportunity to be part of one of the most trusted brands in this growing and exciting space.”
