Whitesboro, NY – Sunnking, Inc., an innovative local recycler that provides e-waste solutions, has made a multi-year commitment to fully open a satellite facility and serve customers in the Central New York and Capital regions.

The facility’s ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at 272 Oriskany Blvd., Whitesboro, NY.This expansion comes during the company’s milestone 21st anniversary and is expected to create up to 10 new jobs within its first full year of operation.

“A big focus for us will be helping local businesses in the area,” said Adam Shine, Vice President, Sunnking. “We want to make it easy for them to responsibly handle and dispose of all of their electronics.”

The new demanufacturing facility will provide a resource for local businesses to reliably handle their end-of-life technology – including secure data destruction. This addition will also allow Sunnking to extend product lifecycles by identifying opportunities for refurbishing and resale.

The warehouse had previously opened in March of 2020, before immediately being shut down due to COVID-19 safety procedures. Operations have slowly ramped back up in recent months due to the growing need for electronics recycling.

“We’re excited to travel into the underserviced Central and Eastern markets and believe this gives us the ability to expand throughout the state even more,” said Shine. “This evolution allows the ability to efficiently duplicate many of our current processes, create meaningful jobs and serve more customers under the New York State e-waste law.”

The plant buildout will also create space for Sunnking to add a second location of its retail brand, eCaboose, which sells refurbished electronics and offers computer support to the community (coming in 2022).
