Working together towards a sustainable future
Re-Teck initially established operations in the Netherlands in 2018. In joining the Dutch high tech sector, the company has helped manufacturers and importers of ICT products in the Netherlands and Europe, to re-use, recycle and re-purpose electronic devices and equipment.
‘We are very pleased to have supported Re-Teck in their expansion process in Brabant. With the arrival of the new facility in Etten-Leur, the company will be able to further expand their activities and contribute to a sustainable future,’ stated Eelko Brinkhoff, Director Foreign Investments & International Trade at Brabant Development Agency (BOM).
