June 25, 2012 - At the end of June, Ontario-based GEEP (Global Electric Electronic Processing) and Ecuador-based Intercia announced a partnership agreement within the territory of Ecuador.
Intercia GEEP Ecuador Headquarters are located in Guayaquil and have six plants spanning the area: two in Guayaquil, two in Quito, one in Montecristi and one in Durán. According to GEEP, Intercia GEEP Ecuador is fully committed to meeting all of the company's ISO standards and downstream requirements and will pursue certifications for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and R2.
Intercia has been established in Guayaquil since 2002 and belongs to the Inversancarlos Group, one of the most important economic groups in Ecuador, with operations in several fields. Intercia acquired their recycling operations from Reipa, Recesa and Ecuarecicla, who are the oldest and the largest recycling operators in Ecuador.
“Intercia, a responsible and dedicated company with over 10 years in the Ecuadorian recycling market, recycling inorganic materials such as paper, cardboard, plastic and ferrous & nonferrous scrap, are proud and very pleased to have GEEP (Global Electric Electronic Processing) as their new strategic alliance," said General Manager, Ing. Xavier Ycaza. "GEEP is a leading global industrial recycling solution for electrical and electronic equipment. GEEP’s experience, infrastructure, service protocols and technology will undoubtedly be a great complement and support for the work performed by Intercia in Ecuador for a sustainable and responsible recycling in favour of the environment”
“The team at GEEP is excited to be able to work with Intercia. Intercia have chosen this partnership based on GEEP’s experience and the aggressive regional development in Latin America," said Greg McWatt, the Group GM for Corporate Business Development in Latin America and the Caribbean. "GEEP is actively executing on its Global Strategy to serve the needs of numerous customers. Countries of all sizes have a role to play in the management of the fastest growing waste source in the world.”
GEEP was acquired by Triple M Metal in April, 2011 and is strategically expanding its global footprint in order to deliver service and reverse logistic solutions. The company now has 15 locations throughout Canada, United States, Mexico, Europe, Central America and South America. www.geepglobal.com
