NEW YORK Electronic Recyclers International Inc.(ERI) has expanded its Fresno, Calif., facility by 40,000 square feet, bringing the electronics recycling companys operations to about 250,000 square feet.
The company said the expansion was spurred by a need to accommodate growing operations in California and to provide additional space for shredder feed.
"Were very proud of the growth weve achieved in our hometown of Fresno over the past several years," ERI chairman and chief executive officer John Shegerian said in a statement. "Now, with the continuous growth of the electronic recycling and urban mining markets, we simply need to make more space to accommodate the expanding electronic recycling needs of California and beyond."
Established in 2002, ERI collects and recycles electronics waste, specializing in the sustainable dismantling of consumer electronic items. The company operates in California, Colorado, Indiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas and Washington, processing about 250 million pounds of electronic waste annually.
