EPC Opens New Atlanta Facility

In January of this year, EPC officially opened their newest facility in Atlanta, GA, offering all EPC equipment disposition services to the region. At 65,000 square feet, the Atlanta facility is the largest EPC equipment processing facility outside of the St. Louis metropolitan area.

EPC’s presence in the Southeast began in 2008 when it opened its Columbia, South Carolina facility, which has been servicing businesses throughout the region ever since. With our new presence in Atlanta, we hope to expand that service and meet the region’s rising demand for equipment disposition. “More companies are seeing the value of professional IT asset disposition services like ours,” said Dan Fuller, president and founder of EPC. “The reality is that most businesses don’t want to pay to have antiquated equipment shipped very far. Therefore, it makes good business sense to continue to expand our geographic footprint in the United States and globally.”

Our St. Louis-based company was founded in 1984 and operates across the United States in six other locations: St. Charles, MO; Kansas City, MO; Las Vegas, NV; Houston, TX; Allentown, PA; and Wright City, MO. The company serves as an international leader in recycling and proper environmental handling of used IT equipment. EPC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CSI Leasing, Inc., the largest independent IT leasing company in the country. EPC’s services include the sale of new and used computer systems and parts, repairs and upgrades, networking design, and IT asset management. EPC is committed to a zero-landfill policy and zero export of unprocessed equipment overseas and has signed the Basel Action Network Pledge of Responsible E-Waste Stewardship as a certified e-Steward.

New Recycling Facility in Wright City

St. Charles, MO- EPC, a national leader in recycling and proper handling and disposal of used IT and electronic equipment, has moved into a larger, state-of-art facility in Wright City, MO. The $5 million dollar facility is 104,000 square feet and replaces the existing 65,000 SF recycling operation in Earth City. EPC anticipates business volume to increase by 20% initially, with additional growth anticipated.

“The leadership in Wright City embraced our vision for the new recycling facility,” said Dan Fuller, President of EPC.  “They listened to our needs, and helped us find the right location that would meet our current requirements and allow for future growth. They were also instrumental in working with our employees to help them relocate into the area.”

EPC’s Wright City recycling facility features a $1.7 million magnetic optical sorter shredding machine which includes smart technology, automating the process of sorting and decommissioning computer equipment and eliminates the human risk associated with decommissioning. The sorter also has the capabilities to learn processes, and improve performance based on logging and avoiding previous mistakes. This capability, and this piece of equipment, positions EPC at the top level of technology recycling facilities in the country.

“Large corporations take the decommissioning of their IT equipment very seriously, and rightfully so,” said Fuller. “It’s our job to help ensure that this process is handled properly. That’s why it was important for us to build one of the most advanced facilities in the United States, with processes, technology and certifications to give our clients, especially data-sensitive organizations, the confidence to know that the job is being done properly.”

The new facility currently employs 70 people, with plans to grow by an additional 20 employees in the next 12 months. Banze Construction was the design-build contractor. The project was self funded through operations and its parent company CSI Leasing.
