AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Resale is proud to announce that its Austin Headquarters and state of the art refurbishment center has obtained all four industry-leading certificates within the first six months of operations. Global Resale CEO, Jeff Zeigler said, "Our team worked incredibly hard around the clock to ensure that we implemented the best quality and compliance systems at our new facility. Our partners depend on us to deliver flawless execution and best-in-class services, and we are dedicated to maintaining quality and compliance as we continue to grow. We are well-positioned to manage our partners' complex reverse logistics needs as they replace and upgrade billions of devices."
Mike Watson led the implementation and certification effort for Global Resale, leveraging his 20+ year career in takeback, regulatory compliance, and operations with Dell. Watson said, "The entire Global Resale team excelled at developing and implementing the policies and processes to support their ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2007, and R2 certifications. I worked closely with most of the tech manufacturers (OEMs) to create the initial industry standards in the mid-2000s. Based on my experience over the past several decades, I believe Global Resale has the most optimized program for both cost / quality efficiencies and scalability in this space. We look forward to implementing this in all of our facilities around the world, including completing the certification process at our UK facility by Q1 2017."
The R2 Standard is the premier global environmental, worker health and safety standard for the electronics refurbishing and recycling industry. For more information on Global Resale, please visit www.globalresale.com.
