Jabil expands supply chain circular services

07 November 2023

Designer and manufacturer Jabil Inc. has finalized its acquisition of electronic component reclamation and refurbishment vendor Retronix.

Retronix’s testing services include component recovery, component authenticity, reballing and retinning. The safe extraction of embedded valuable components from printed circuit boards and other electronics minimizes waste and creates value channels.

The deal adds to Jabil’s circular economy services such as:

  • Reverse supply chain management
  • Medical device reprocessing
  • Recycled packaging
  • Emission reductions

Additionally, the deal will offer sustainable options for its users in smart products such as electronic vehicles, home appliances, medical devices and packaged goods.

“Like Jabil, Retronix works with leading brands across industries such as telecommunications, defense, automotive, and healthcare. Now, these services will be available to Jabil customers, and together, we will strengthen the circular economy,” said Jed Pecchioli, vice president of supply chain at Jabil. “Being a part of Jabil will make an impact on sustainable manufacturing. From product design to end-of-life, our common goal is to squeeze every bit of life out of every material and reduce electronic waste.”
