Back Market, a marketplace for renewed electronics has announced Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS), a provider of circular solutions for technology, is actively selling on the marketplace, bringing enterprise-grade products to consumers with significant cost savings – while minimizing environmental impact. The two companies are working to expand the availability of professionally refurbished, high-quality devices globally to maximize the life of electronics components, products and materials and generate economic value for all parties involved.
“As SLS continues to grow, we are always looking for additional channels to sell our products, These additional channels help us find better value for our clients and the diversity helps make sure that no one channel is overwhelmed with product. It has been great working with Back Market and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship.”
– Sean Magann, Chief Commercial Officer at Sims Lifecycle Services
SLS works with enterprises, data centers and electronics manufacturers to retire, redeploy and recycle IT assets with processes ensuring data security and environmental compliance. One channel SLS utilizes is Back Market which is a high-growth marketplace exclusively focused on renewed electronics that provides a streamlined and efficient way for SLS to reach buyers and support circularity.
The collaboration brings more awareness and focus on the full lifecycle of electronics products. The World Economic Forum estimates each U.S. resident generates an average of 44 pounds of e-waste every year. Both companies align on the importance of promoting a circular electronics industry and see this collaboration as increasing value for their customers and the industry.
“SLS will be supplying enterprise level equipment on the Back Market platform giving our customers access to business-grade products and helping advance circularity. We are so excited to welcome a leader like SLS to our marketplace – one that aligns well with our values, our commitment to quality and support for “closing the loop” in electronics. Keeping assets in circulation longer shifts more products from liabilities to assets and increases value for all.”
– Lauren Benton, General Manager at Back Market in the United States
