As the electronics recycling industry continues to grow, it does so with a unique set of challenges. One of the greatest hurdles faced by many collectors/processors in the industry is the relatively high cost and low value of processing Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT televisions and monitors). Due to the significant volumes of this material and dwindling rebates paid by manufacturers it is critical to process all material in the most efficient way possible to help maximize value. Hanna’s strong financial background and past experiences were one of the main contributing factors to bringing him on to lead the Sunnking team.
Past President Michelle Read will assume leadership in Sunnking Logistics, Inc., which sources various electronic components for businesses. Sunnking Logistics a separate entity from Sunnking, Inc.
