A second life

The WEEE Directive, which sets targets for the recovery and recycling of ten categories of electrical and electronic equipment, has done much to reduce the amount of e-waste that ends up in landfill. By giving a second life to products that would otherwise become e-waste so too has FLP Solutions.

The Middlewich-based firm specialises in supplying refurbished (and new) printers, parts and
IT equipment to resellers, IT maintenance companies and organisations nationwide.

It started trading in 2001 and quickly established itself as a major player in the IT spares industry, initially supplying IT maintenance companies with refurbished IT hardware items, in particular HP laptop parts.

“We then diversified to sell both new and refurbished laser printers, MFPs and printer parts, again mainly HP. But we now also offer many other leading brands’ desktop PC and server spares,” explained Business Development Manager Andrew Cartwright.

FLP Solutions buys in redundant IT and print hardware, strips the kit down completely, thoroughly cleans everything and repairs any broken parts before putting products and parts up for resale. The company maintains that there is no such thing as ‘obsolete’, promising to source any specific piece of IT hardware requested by individual customers, as well as helping them to dispose of that equipment and upgrade to the latest kit when it’s time to change.

Cartwright said: “With ever increasing pressure on profitability, having the opportunity to lower the cost of maintaining IT equipment and printer fleets by utilising refurbished spare parts is an attractive proposition for our customer base.

“In addition, supplying refurbished printers over new ones enables them to offer a lower cost and ‘greener’ solution to customers for whom cost and carbon savings are key drivers. In the main, a refurbished device costs between 30 and 50% less than when new.”
