Portsmouth-based laptop remanufacturer Circular Computing has signed a global partnership with Atos, to bolster the vendor’s net zero transformation portfolio.
Circular Computing produces at-scale, pre-used HP, Dell and Lenovo laptops that are certified to be equal or better than new.
Earlier this year, Circular Computing was selected in Atos’ open innovation programme for start-ups and SMEs and Atos has since rolled out remanufactured laptops across its own business.
Rod Neale, Founder, Circular Computing, said: “The IT channel for years has tried to legitimately provide product that has been used, by calling it refurbished or grade ‘A’, but consumers need assurances and consistency which you just don’t get from a refurbished product.
“We set up Circular Computing to bring the same level of consistency in supply scale and condition as the brand-new channel. In this way we can supply all our customers with the most sustainable laptop on the planet and deliver all their technology needs, all whilst not asking them to take any risk on the products cosmetic, technical or warranty performance.”
Jason Warren, VP Head of NetZero Portfolio at Atos, added “This partnership will deliver tangible savings not just for our business, but for the planet and our customers.”
Atos was recently selected as a member of both the 2021 Dow Jones Sustainability Index World and Europe, ranking first in Europe amongst companies included in the industry of “TSV IT Services”.
