Sims Recycling Solutions’ entry highlighted a number of recent mobile innovations. Bespoke solutions demonstrate a prolonged and significant cost reduction within our client’s operations through recovery and reuse, including the LCD and chassis polishing service developed by our in-house research and development team at our Glasgow facility. A network operator using this service for two years saved over £1.8M in additional costs compared to their previous replacement processes. Unlike other polishing solutions available on the market, our process results in no visual distortion to the glass. These distortions could weaken the display and affect the screen’s strength and integrity. Our technique also allows Sims Recycling Solutions to polish screens without removing it from the device.

Sims Recycling Solutions Managing Director Europe & India, Anand Narasimhan said, “We are thrilled to receive this award in our first year entering the competition. Our mobile services are top-class and continue to grow in scope and value. We are delighted to be recognized by Mobile News and the larger mobile industry for these achievements”.

Ewan Fraser, UK Head of Business Development (Mobility) believes the award solidifies Sims Recycling Solutions’ role in the UK mobile market. He said, “Our whole team have worked so hard over the last 12 months to grow the Sims brand within the mobility sector. We are delighted to receive this award as validation for these efforts. We are confident that we will continue to build upon this success with new innovations that we are currently developing. We believe these innovations will have a massive impact on the recovery business in the mobile sector and will provide massive cost savings for our partners. Winning the Recycling Provider award will help us to open doors to more partners and we very much look forward to working with them throughout the coming year”.

The Recycling Provider award has pride of place in the Sims Recycling Solutions, UK trophy case, sitting next to the “Secure Data Erasure Company of the Year” received in October by readers and industry peers from Computing Security magazine.
