Over 1 billion new cell phones are sold worldwide on a yearly basis, and that number continues to grow annually. That means roughly 1 billion old cell phones have come to the end of their first life. Most are in perfectly good working condition and end up back with the carrier through upgrade or take-back programs. Now if you’re a carrier, you know storing these EOL products is a costly, logistically impractical solution, and dumping them is a hazardous, socially irresponsible one. What other option is there?
There is CWG.
CWG specializes in reverse logistics for the wireless industry. We reuse, recycle and refurbish wireless devices and their parts, batteries and accessories, and send them back down the supply chain to start a new life. This holistic approach creates additional revenue streams and provides logistical relief for our manufacturing and carrier partners, and protects the environment. It’s win-win all around.
CWG is headquartered in Bohemia, NY, and employs 280 workers in the U.S., Hong Kong and China. Operations include repair/refurbishing, data removal, handset and accessory reclamation, warehousing and fulfillment.
We’re part of the CMB consortium, a nine-company conglomerate at the forefront of the communications world. CMB specializes in sourcing computer and cellular products, as well as distributing, manufacturing, restoring and reconditioning them. We’re also members of CTIA, CEA and RLA.
