"At U.S. Micro we are singularly focused on setting the highest standards for data security and environmental protections in the ITAD industry," stated Jim Kegley, founder, president and CEO of U.S. Micro.
"We believe that technology can motivate and inspire younger generations," Jim Kegley, founder, president, and CEO of U.S. Micro said regarding the company's reason for supporting CFY.
"Supporting The Outlook Foundation is another example of how we empower communities through technology", said U.S. Micro founder, president and CEO Jim Kegley.
Jim Kegley, founder, president and CEO of U.S. Micro, said: "Our board of directors and management decided to pursue SOC 2 because U.S. Micro's process and service offerings exceed the requirements of existing industry certifications and what our competitors offer.
Kegley asserts that third party audits will become more prevalent. "Large companies - and increasingly smaller ones - want assurance that IT assets will be handled properly after retirement and won't end up costing millions and ruining their reputations if data is mishandled," he said.
While computer de-manufacturing and recycling have been under way at the new plant for about two months, U.S. Micro founder and CEO Jim Kegley decided that the middle of CES was an ideal time to show off the $20 million facility that includes a first-class weight room, game room and kitchen in addition to several lines of machines designed to chew up and spit out obsolete computers and electronics and grind them down to sand.
"I never thought I'd get the kind of reception we've received," Kegley said after greeting customers and well-wishers. Kegley said he's already signed up some casinos and gaming equipment suppliers to contracts to dispose of their old computers and devices.
Kegley said the challenge that lies ahead is getting the word out that the company is here and in operation to serve the Western United States.
Kegley has said the plant, when fully operational in about a year, will have 100 employees, most of whom are being hired locally. Kegley said a handful of executives have moved from Georgia.
Back in 1995, when the company's chief executive and founder, Jim Kegley, opened the first plant in Atlanta, recycling old electronics was at best a niche business.
"Typically, we find that our customers don't have a good outlet for their old equipment, and they are worried about their data, so they stockpile," Kegley told The Huffington Post during a visit this week.
"Today, we see data everywhere," said Kegley.
