Wisetek expands US operations in Sacramento, California
Wisetek a global leader in advanced IT asset disposal, data destruction, technology reuse and manufacturing services, has announced the opening of its new West Coast operation in Sacramento, California. To support its continued business growth in the U.S, the company will hire up to 20 people located at its base at 8210 Berry Avenue in Sacramento.
The company’s US operations are headquartered in Maryland with other operational centers located in Massachusetts and Austin. The new Sacramento facility joins existing Wisetek facilities in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East to further build on the company’s worldwide network.
“The establishment of this facility highlights another milestone achievement for Wisetek in the continued growth and success of our US business,” said Sean Sheehan, Founder, and CEO, Wisetek. “We are continuing to deliver on our promise to better support our new and existing IT Manufacturing, Data Center and Large IT user customers in the rapidly expanding IT secondary marketplace, whilst operating to the highest sustainability and circular economy principles.”
“Wisetek is the perfect example of how our organization continues to develop a foreign direct investment strategy for the Sacramento market as we continue to build relationships with Ireland,” Greater Sacramento Economic Council CEO Barry Broome said. “Additionally, Wisetek will help support the future of our hardware/high-tech manufacturing industry cluster. This is the second Irish company which has located to the Sacramento region in the last 24 months. The Greater Sacramento Economic Council has built a foreign direct investment interface with Ireland.”
Sheehan explains, “The facility we have built will become a first-rate location for processing of used electronics and a base for dispatching our mobile shredding fleet. Staff working here will see the full scope of Wisetek’s capabilities from online ordering of jobs, tracking of materials and providing a secondary market for client’s equipment. Wisetek USA operates at the highest environmental compliance levels, adopting the R2 and E Stewards standards which are recognized globally.”
“Enterprise Ireland is excited for Wisetek’s new facility in Sacramento,” Sara Hill, SVP Advanced Technologies, Enterprise Ireland USA said. “The city’s proximity to industrial and technology hubs will provide Wisetek with a strategic advantage, and access to talent will aid in the company’s growth. The Greater Sacramento Economic Council was a helpful catalyst to the launch of Wisetek’s West Coast hub and continue to be a great resource for Irish companies looking to expand in the area.”
“We want to welcome Wisetek to Sacramento. Companies such as this one are important to the future of Sacramento because they are sustainable and green,” Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said. “We have already supported this company with the hiring process as they continue to bring jobs and investment into our city.”
