Prime Electronic Components was founded in 1990 to work with various Asset Recovery and E-Scrap Recyclers to remarket surplus and used equipment to the consumer. Over the years we have partnered with some of the largest recyclers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Electronic Contract Manufacturers (ECM). We take their surplus inventory, used computer equipment, used telecommunications equipment, surplus consumables and surplus electronic components that would normally get scrapped or sent to a landfill and re-market the items to smaller manufacturers and consumers.
Our goal is to try and keep as much of the used equipment, surplus inventory and overstock coming out of the electronics industry out of the landfills. We do this by looking at everything that comes into our facility as the sum of its parts. When we research an item we not only look at what it is but also what it can be used for. If an item is not marketable as a whole or contains proprietary technology that cannot be resold we will deconstruct the item and market the parts. By doing this we are able to give our partners a higher ROI than other inventory remarketers but we are also able to offer our customers parts and items that are not normally available to small businesses and consumers.
We do this by trying to adhere to the 3 golden rules of recycling:
- REDUCE - By selling OEM parts we are able to reduce the demand for retail parts; therefore reducing the energy needed to manufacture retail parts..
- REUSE - By purchasing used computers, electronics and telecom equipment; you are helping reduce the amount of energy needed to manufacture new equipment and helping reduce the amount of pollution generated by manufacturers.
- RECYCLE - We not only help support recyclers by making parts available to help refurbish older equipment that would normally get sent to a landfill. We also support recycling by using as much recycled equipment in offices as possible.
We pride ourselves on the level of service we offer our customers and partners. We personally test, inspect, and repackage if necessary all items that we sell. We also personally guarantee the functionality of all items we sell. We strive to offer our customers the highest level of satisfaction possible. If at any point in time you ever have a question about something you see in our store or you have a problem with an item you purchased just email us or pick up the phone and call us and we will be more than happy to help you in any way possible.
