SMR Worldwide has opened its third processing site, the first of several additional locations slated to come on-line in the next few years.
The Statesville, N.C.-headquartered ITAD firm opened the 20,000-square-foot Dallas location on July 1. The project was first announced in March.
The facility is smaller than SMR’s Statesville processing facility, which is over 100,000 square feet, and its Woodland, Calif. facility, which is over 60,000 square feet. But the Texas facility’s location allows the company to better serve customers logistically, said Tom Allison, president of SMR.
Because of the price of trucking, it made sense to open another facility to reduce shipping costs, he said.
With four employees, the leased Dallas site is equipped to provide all the same services as the other locations, except for large-scale shredding projects, Allison said. If a major shredding job comes in, SMR would ship the devices to Statesville or to a partner company for destruction, he said.
