ITAD services provider EPC has opened a facility in Colombia’s capital, giving the subsidiary of CSI Leasing its fourth Latin America plant. 

EPC announced on May 16 it opened the 8,000-square-foot Bogotá ITAD facility, which can process 2,000 IT assets per month. The facility currently employs five ITAD specialists, with plans to grow as volumes increase, a press release noted. 

“Having a facility in Colombia will allow us to provide CSI’s customers with a consistent end-of-lease experience, along with comprehensive ITAD services, including standardized equipment processing, reporting, data sanitization and proper recycling,” Ivan Herrera, Andean region services and remarketing manager, stated in the release. “Our main goal is to accelerate CSI’s growth in the Andean region, further solidifying both CSI and EPC’s vast global footprint.”

Headquartered in St. Charles, Mo., EPC already has facilities near Mexico City; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Lima, Peru. 

The release notes that Herrera will manage EPC subsidiary EPC Andina, which includes the Colombia and Peru operations. He has been overseeing ITAD services and remarketing for CSI Leasing subsidiaries throughout the Andean Region for nearly eight years. 

CSI has opened new company-owned sites on a regular basis for years. 

A little over a year ago, in early 2022, EPC opened a technology and redeployment center in St. Peters, Mo., not far from the corporate headquarters. The Peru plant opened in 2021, the same year the company’s Canadian subsidiary expanded its Edmonton location and moved into a larger space in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. That Edmonton location had just opened a year earlier, in 2020. 

In 2019, the company moved into a larger Pennsylvania facility, opened a facility in Atlanta, and first opened its Vancouver plant.
