Sims Lifecycle Services has opened a processing center in Mexico, where the company has seen growing demand for ITAD and data center decommissioning services.

West Chicago, Ill.-based Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS) on Aug. 31 announced the new facility, which is located in Guadalajara, Mexico. The facility is the latest expansion for SLS, which operates six processing centers in the United States, as well as facilities in Europe, Singapore, Australia and India.

“We continue to see our data center and ITAD clients grow in Mexico, and this facility will help us better serve them,” said Sean Magann, chief commercial officer for SLS, in a statement.

SLS provides a range of ITAD services, and the company has pushed further into the data center decommissioning business of late. In its most recent financial report, the company noted that processing data center devices for reuse has proven more profitable than recycling e-scrap.

In late 2020, another global ITAD provider, Ingram Micro, also opened a processing site in Mexico, noting growing demand in the region.
