This is the company’s third facility in South America. The new facility will offer a wide range of services including data erasure and drive destruction, processing, remarketing and recycling.

According to Todd Zegers, vice president, ITAD, Commerce & Lifecycle Services, the addition of the Lima facility has helped the company to offer ITAD services at three out of the four most populous countries in the South American region. The company is committed to open additional facilities later this year, he said. It must be noted that the company already has got facilities in Brazil and Colombia.

Meantime, Martin Garcia-Brosa, executive director Latin America, Commerce & Lifecycle Services noted that Peru is strategic expansion for Ingram Micro.
