Metech International Acquires Recycling Facility in Thailand

WORCESTER, Mass., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Metech International, a leader in environmentally responsible recycling and asset recovery for electronic equipment, today announced the acquisition of a recycling facility near Bangkok, Thailand. Located in the Bang Pa-In Hi-Tech Industrial Park in the Ayutthaya Province Export Processing Zone (EPZ) 2, this 30,000 square foot, high-security facility is specifically designed for de-manufacturing and certified destruction of materials and systems from the electronics industry.

"We continue to provide our international customers with the best, most secure recycling services, wherever they are," said Sam Advani, president of Metech. "This facility will support our clients located in this region, particularly those with operations in Thailand. It is part of our commitment to establish facilities and strategic partnerships worldwide that provide our customers with a local, one-stop recycling solution using the same accountable processes that Metech is known for in North America. We can support our global customers internationally with a single supplier to handle their e-scrap for complete, documented and environmentally correct disposal."

This facility is fully permitted by Ministry of Industry of the Kingdom of Thailand, and is currently preparing for ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 Certification. Metech Thailand further extends the reach of Metech's Accountable Resource Management(R) (ARM(R)) program. The ARM program, the only one of its kind in the electronics recycling industry, assures customers complete product stewardship through step-by-step tracking and accountability for all material handling. This is a critical issue in the face of growing global concerns about "cradle-to-grave" environmental responsibility and information security. ARM protocols provide an accountable service platform for Metech's multinational customers.

Metech International (, a pioneer in asset reuse and precious metal recovery, specializes in environmentally responsible, accountable recycling and reuse of industrial manufacturing scrap, obsolete inventory, and end-of-life electronics. Metech serves customers in the automotive, electrical and electronic, jewelry and metal processing industries, and offers computer and cell phone recycling programs for disposal of consumer electronics.
