ETB Technologies, a reseller of refurbished servers, storage, and network equipment, has doubled its capacity over the past year following investment in a new networking workshop.
The company said the enlarged space (pictured above) has allowed its team to streamline processes and increase network switch refurbishment staff by 50 per cent, with room to add more skilled individuals as demand grows.
The company’s expansion and investment has been driven by a significant increase in customer demand for its refurbished networking equipment globally over the past year. The set up in the new networking workshop is enabling teams to refurbish equipment in under an hour.
Nick Stapleton, managing director, ETB Technologies, explained, “The demand for networking equipment has risen considerably over the past year, with businesses looking for new and faster ways to connect and securely share data. Our goal is to quickly supply our customers with high quality products, and so we knew growing our networking workshop was a priority.
“Rather than solely relying on increased staff numbers to achieve this, we also reviewed our internal processes. We expanded the workshop’s footprint and changed our storage and testing spaces to improve the workflow and increase efficiency. As a result, our staff can refurbish networking equipment in under an hour. This means we have doubled the total number of networking equipment each person can refurbish in a week, with no loss of quality.”
In October, ETB Technologies celebrated its 20th anniversary with an announcement that it had increased overall company staff by 50 per cent since 2020. The company said it is now developing plans to further grow its international customer base.
