CEO's Walk The Talk

“..Recycling is and will continue to be our largest revenue driver. We have increased our product range to include electronic waste, commonly known as e-waste, from products such as used computers, PDAs, handphones, and so on. Diversifying our revenue stream with this sector, we are well-positioned to reap the benefits from increasing worldwide interest in ewaste and environmental protection. With global attention on the importance of recycling, and efforts and regulations enacted to spur recycling, we envision healthy prospects for our business. While a growing recycling market will encourage more market entrants, our reputation, skills and network of business associates will continue to positively distinguish us from competitors.”
