Information technology asset disposition (ITAD) provider EPC, a subsidiary of CSI Leasing, expanded its footprint in the Southeast U.S. in order to accommodate its growing service offering.
The company consolidated operations from its 64,000-square-foot Atlanta facility and its 30,000-suare-foot South Carolina facility into a new, larger 205,000-square-foot space in Columbia, SC. The move comes after the company experienced an increase in overall volume, along with a higher demand for ITAD services, such as warehousing, staging, imaging, redeployment, data destruction and recycling for both leased and non-leased equipment. The company is also experiencing higher demand for its data destruction and recycling vehicles (DDRV) to perform onsite media destruction, with the company having several trucks based out of the new facility to service the Southeast region.
Employees from the smaller South Carolina facility, along with several from Atlanta, will staff the new facility. EPC is actively hiring for this location and plans to have at least 100 employees on staff. The facility will be managed by Shaun Liles, who has been with EPC for more than 10 years.
“With this new, larger facility, we are able to better accommodate our customers’ demand for services beyond traditional ITAD, which is typically data destruction, remarketing and recycling,” Pat Laughlin, CEO of EPC, said. “EPC provides these essential disposal services along with several other critical solutions that help our customers manage a complete IT lifecycle strategy. Our goal has always been to ease the burdens associated with managing an efficient IT program, and this new larger facility will help EPC deliver.”
