Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) announced the launch of a new subsidiary, Converge Engineering LLC. Former Engineering and Technical Director of SRS, Rafael Reveles, will lead Converge as President and aims to use his team’s industry experience to service the recycling industry and develop data destruction devices to better serve the security and IT asset disposition markets (ITAD).
Converge is headquartered in Roseville, Calif. and also has engineers located in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Baltimore, enabling Converge to provide fully-integrated solutions nationwide, said SIMS. Services offered include providing seamless engineering support from beginning to end including design, fabrication, installation and maintenance.
“I’m excited to be involved in the evolution of the industry and share all we’ve learned over the years being involved both as the operator and builder,” said Reveles. “Solutions for destroying and securing data storage hardware need to be portable, scalable, flexible and effective. Converge is currently developing solutions optimised for consolidated data locations to properly destroy platter, solid state drives and solid state memory.”
Besides their core offerings of designing, building and enhancing electronics and metals recycling plants on a large scale, the company said Converge will offer smaller recycling plants to accommodate low volume applications and smaller electronic products. Converge Engineering will incorporate consulting, system integration, 3D point cloud scanning and surveying, 3D drafting, mechanical engineering, electrical and controls design, UL508 control panel building, metal fabrication, and project management to offer a “one-stop shop”.
