IT recycling company Network 2 Supplies has been accredited by Microsoft as an approved refurbisher.
Becoming a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher enables N2S in Bury St Edmunds to offer high quality and immediately useable refurbished PCs to businesses, public sector organisations and education facilities.
As part of the agreement N2S is also able to sell PCs with Microsoft software to voluntary and not for profit organisations at reduced prices.
Jack Gomarsall, N2S managing director, said: “It is a huge endorsement. There is a very strict criteria to being awarded this accreditation, which includes proving our leading position in our sector and providing evidence of excellence in the services we deliver.
“Previously, when dealing with our clients’ redundant PCs we could refurbish them for sell on, however they had no software.
“Now we can refurbish them and install Microsoft software, making them instantly useable, more valuable and more attractive to potential buyers.”
The Microsoft accreditation rounds off a successful year for N2S. Earlier in 2014 it sealed two significant new contracts worth an additional £1m a year, and also installed a £250,000 cable granulation plant, which sees N2S recycle all telecoms and IT elements, bringing in new revenue.
