AER Worldwide opens recycling center in Penang
Nov 04, 2005
AER Worldwide, a global electronics recycling resource and components distributor, announced the opening of AER Worldwide Sdn. Berhad in Penang, Malaysia. The electronics de-manufacture and sorting center will provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and contract manufacturers located in Asia with close-to-source material sorting and destruction services.
AER Worldwide's new 40,000 square foot Penang facility employs about 20 full time and contract employees. The facility handles highly recyclable materials such as steel, base metals, paper and cardboard. AER provides certified destruction and online viewing capabilities so companies can track their waste. Other services include precious metals processing, serial number tracking, sorting/de-manufacturing and excess inventory management.
AER tracks, audits and reports the customer's downstream material flows. It ensures that lead, battery and copper bearing materials, such as printed circuit board assemblies, AC adapters and power supplies, are only shipped to pre-audited ISO 14001 compliant facilities, eliminating the risk of corporate liabilities that can occur through non-certified operations.
"Malaysia is still a vibrant electronics manufacturing region," said AER Worldwide's president Andre' Weiglein.
"Becoming truly worldwide and following the electronics manufacturers means you have to be in Malaysia as well as the other major regions of electronics manufacturing around the world. This is the first Asian facility for AER Worldwide and the timing was relevant in that we located there while Citiraya was our most formidable competitor. Now that they are out of the picture, we hope to fulfill the needs of multi-national corporations seeking a meaningful and correct flow of information about downstream reporting of values and environmentally correct processing."
