Aspitech is Adelaide's fastest growing e-waste business

Our newest venture, Aspitech (www.aspitech.com.au) is rapidly expanding and is now the second largest e-waste service in Adelaide and will potentially employ a significantly larger number of people with disabilities as it grows.  Aspitech was established in 2008 to explore new businesses due to the decline in manufacturing and offer new green job opportunities for our employees in the area of e-waste management due to the introduction of new national environmental legislation.

This new business venture has been fully funded by SA Group Enterprises and in 2011 we again invested significant revenues in difficult economic conditions. We leased larger premises, purchased new plant equipment, obtained ISO accreditation, and employed a business development manager Andrew Wallace. This has resulted in rapid growth taking the business from processing only 2 tons to over 50 tons of e-waste per month, along with a thriving business in qualtiy refurbished computers.

The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme was introduced in July 2012 and Aspitech has secured an e-waste business that will now require them to process over 100 tons of e-waste per month. If Aspitech is able to successfully meet this demand it is expected that they will achieve over 1 million dollars turnover per year by 2014 and, more importantly, offer significant ongoing employment for people with disabilities.
