Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Wins Substantial BT Re-Manufacturing Contracts in Ireland

May 07, 2008

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Limited announces that its Antrim-based specialist re-manufacturing and repair division, Fujitsu Telecommunications Ireland (FTI), has recently won two major re-manufacturing contracts with a combined value of nearly GB £2.5 million. BT Convergent Solutions has awarded FTI a significant two-year contract for re-manufacturing and component-level repair services. Underlining re-manufacturing’s value as a waste-reduction strategy, the contract will involve the processing of approximately 1500 products per month, and spans around one hundred business-telephone product lines, including legacy products as well as a growing number of IP-based systems. In addition, FTI has also won a two-year contract to re-manufacture and repair BT’s installed base of Sovereign SM1 payphones throughout the UK, with 120 units refurbished in the first month.

Peter Bowman, Director of Fujitsu Telecommunications Ireland, commented on the new contracts and on the increasing demand for the division’s specialist services:
“This is excellent news for Fujitsu Telecommunications Ireland, and highlights the growing importance that OEMs attach to re-manufacturing as an extremely efficient and cost-effective solution – saving the expense of disposal processing, and the build-from-new investment. Our contract with BT Convergent Solutions is the broadest in scope to date, encompassing repair down to component level, across all the products involved, underlining the flexibility of the services we have available here. The scope of our re-manufacturing and repair capabilities now ranges from high-end exchange equipment, through business telephone systems, to laptop computers and related IT technologies. Our business is strengthening as a result of growing concern over the green issues relating to electronic products, providing us with a firm base for employment in the region.”

FTI’s operation is solely focused on the extension of product lifecycles, through the re-manufacturing and repair of electronic products for OEMs in Europe, maximising their return on investment and preserving valuable inventories. The division has expanded steadily since its establishment in Antrim, Northern Ireland, in 1992. BT has featured amongst its client base for more than 15 years, involving the repair and servicing of BT payphones as well as the supply of repair and refurbishment services to BT Convergent Solutions.
