Having foreseen the impact of the 2007 WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) directive, founders Clive Murphy and Malcolm Rash set up a repair and product-refurbishment service for businesses that receive customer returns. Clients include supermarkets, retailers, manufacturers and mail-order firms. The Swansea firm also runs and manages the outlet store on eBay for Britain’s largest supermarket chain, selling its excess inventory and end-of-line products. Largely as a result of the directive’s consequences, sales have grown 47% a year, from £1.7m in 2007 to £5.4m in 2010.
