The company assists Fortune 500, mid-size companies and governments with recycling, repairing and refurbishing computers for resale. The company’s comprehensive services help eliminate e-waste in landfills through its information technology recycling program and through its data security service, which essentially wipes data off hard drive systems.
Brian Beinfest, general operations manager for Intechra, said the company already has hired 34 employees, the majority locally, and will hire the rest of its staff later this summer.
