HP Opens Scottish Centre For Technology Renewal
HP has announced that it has opened a technology renewal centre in Erskine, Scotland, which will benefit government and enterprise customers.
It will allow consumers to acquire certified legacy HP products, while devices which have reached the end of their useful life can be recycled or refreshed.
The centre will play its role in improving HP's green credentials, as it takes in older IT equipment which would otherwise end up on a landfill site.
Jim O'Grady, director and global asset management at HP Financial Services, said: "Equipped to handle the strategic requirements of enterprises large and small, the Erskine facility will enable HP Financial Services to significantly expand the global capabilities, asset management and recycling services we provide our customers.”
HP said that it expects more than 120 million PCs to be refurbished and reused over the next five years within the global secondary market alone.
The technology giant can refurbish and refill printer ink cartridges, which prevents these items from being thrown out and polluting the environment.
