HOUSTON—Wednesday, May 20, 2015—CompuCycle announced today that it has gained its certification as a woman-owned small business through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
CompuCycle will use the certification to help its corporate clients meet supplier diversity goals and to further differentiate itself from its competition.
As such, the electronics recycling company will host booth #409 at the 2015 WBEA EXPO on May 28 in Houston. The event is organized by the Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA), the regional certifying entity of WBENC.
Additionally, CompuCycle will host booth #116 at the WBENC National Conference on June 23-25 in Austin, TX. CompuCycle invites prospective clients to visit both booths to discuss how CompuCycle can solve corporates’ e-cycling needs, minimize costs and maximize returns globally.
“Corporates trust our data sanitization and destruction services, equipment refurbishing and environmentally responsible electronics recycling,” CompuCycle President Kelly Hess said. “We’re excited to connect with the WBENC community and show how e-cycling helps the bottom line.”
As evidence of its industry leadership, CompuCycle also set a new Guinness Book of World Record for the most consumer electronics recycled in 8 hours (single venue) as part of the ABC13 Earth Day E-Cycling Drive.
“With electronic components getting smaller to meet consumer needs for lightweight devices, this record setting is an accomplishment the CompuCycle team truly values,” Vice President Clive Hess said. “We’re committed to helping companies ‘go green’ while delivering a good return on their investment.”
