Originally founded as PC Recycler in Albany, NY by Jeremy Farber, Securis has been setting the standard for effective IT asset disposal (ITAD), data destruction and electronics recycling for over a decade. Originally conceived as a means of assisting companies with the responsible disposal of their obsolete electronics, Securis has become an industry-leading provider of green alternatives to the electronic asset management dilemma and related security issues.
Securis’ (at the time PC Recycler’s) first client was the New York division of Coca-Cola Enterprises. The exemplary removal services provided for the worldwide soft drink conglomerate put Securis very much in demand. Soon, the organization began fielding requests from all across New York. To accommodate this demand Securis acquired its first warehouse in Albany.
In 2004, Securis (then PC Recycler) made hard drive destruction services available to its customer base. This service was the logical next step for Securis because it continued to serve out the firm’s mission of providing environmentally sound solutions for the secure, effective management and removal of any organization’s end-of-life electronic assets, while also safeguarding the integrity of each customer’s sensitive information.
Successful growth led to a market expansion in 2005 for the young firm. After relocating to the Washington, D.C. metro area, Securis became the first local provider of electronics recycling and data destruction as a singular service. Overwhelming interest fueled rapid growth for the organization, and by 2006 Securis doubled its facility size to service demand.
