REDEEM Ltd, the UK’s fastest-growing recycling company, has moved its headquarters from Falkirk to the strategically positioned Pyramids Business Park just off Junction 3a of the M8 near Bathgate.
CEO, Claes Svennson, said:
“The new offices provide us with high quality office accommodation situated at the heart of major travel connections to Europe. That is important as our company continues to expand overseas. The major increase in floor space allows us room for growth and a chance to host on-site customer-focused events. We continue to retain a link with our roots in Falkirk where we maintain our processing operation and currently employ around 40 people there.”
Redeem is a leading specialist in environmental marketing and recycling electronics and mobile phones for mobile network operators and other major corporate clients. In the rapidly developing world of smartphones, Redeem extract the maximum value from traded-in older mobile phone technology to help network operators retain customers by making it affordable to trade up to the latest models. Around 95 per cent of the mobile phones recycled by Redeem are re-sold after being security and theft checked, data cleansed to US government standards and sold in accordance with current WEEE directive regulations
The company entered two new overseas markets in the last six months, Slovakia and Israel, plus had major contracts extended to manage the recycling of traded-in mobile phones for both O2’s business and their consumer customers. This strong business growth has been recognised by the announcement in December that Redeem is now in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list of the fastest growing companies in the UK. Redeem now also tops the Chartered Institute of Waste Management’s Fast 30 list as the UK’s fastest growing recycling company.
Redeem’s new neighbours at the prestigious Pyramids Business Park site include HMRC, Quintiles and DRS. With an on-site local bus service plus crèche facilities, a 450-seat restaurant, gymnasium and boardroom, Redeem believe the move will help them attract the best talent from across the industry as they continue to expand.
