Wiltshire based Blackmore IT has announced the successful completion of its merger with Somerset company Ricotech Ltd. Blackmore Ricotech, as the new business will be known, will continue to specialise in data destruction and secure recycling of redundant IT and waste electrical equipment.
Commenting on the merger, managing director Jonathan Blake said: “Blackmore’s core business is secure IT recycling, WEEE reprocessing and online component sales. Joining forces with Ricotech, one of only 35 companies across Europe accredited by the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA), reinforces our position in the UK secure asset disposal market.”
“Recently, the price of raw materials recovered through the recycling process has fallen to an all-time low. The timing of this merger couldn’t be better – now, more than ever, it is essential to be able to maximise the value in redundant equipment. Our combined expertise in both whole equipment reuse and individual component resale will enable us to provide the highest standards of data destruction and security, without the need to compromise in order to remain competitive.”
Blackmore Ricotech will retain a head office at its Approved Authorised Treatment Facility in Chitterne, Wiltshire; and will continue to operate its ADISA accredited recycling centre in Wells, Somerset.
