Company receives BSI Kitemark certification
Circular Computing, a UK remanufacturer of used laptops, continues to flourish in Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone’s (RAKEZ) ecosystem, expanding its state-of-the-art production facility to a total of 27,460sqm with an investment of AED 8mn (US$ 2.18mn).
The facility will have a production rate of 50,000 rebuilt laptops per month within two years, which will create around 300 new jobs in Ras Al Khaimah.
In addition to the expansion, Circular Computing recently became the world’s first company to receive a BSI Kitemark Certification for its circular production process, in which pre-used laptops are remanufactured to be “equal to or better than new” in terms of appearance and function.
BSI Kitemark Certification is a prestigious UK product and service quality certification mark, which demonstrates that a product or service has gone beyond the normal requirements to achieve the highest standards.
“This is about sustainability without compromise. The BSI Kitemark certification confirms the end of one journey, to develop the technology and skills to be able to deliver a product that is defined as ‘as new’, and the beginning of a new journey,” commented Rod Neale, Founder, Circular Computing. A re-opening ceremony was conducted at Circular Computing’s newly expanded facility, which was attended by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Humaid Al Qasimi, Managing Director, RAKEZ, and British Consul General Simon Penny.
