Global Investment Recovery adds Arizona facility.

Global Investment Recovery Inc. (GIR), based in Tampa, Fla., has completed the acquisition of a 44,000-square-foot facility in Tucson, Ariz., from which GIR will provide electronic recycling services to customers in the Southwest region of the United States.

The Tucson plant is GIR's seventh recycling facility, joining other operations in Tampa, Aiken County, S.C., and Reno, Nev.

GIR says it expects to invest $3 million into the facility and to begin production in May. GIR expects to recycle 20,000 personal computers, up to 15,500 monitors and other products monthly at the location.

"We are very excited and proud to grow into the vibrant Southwest area with our latest processing facility, bringing our company's recycling knowledge, methods and techniques as well as providing new jobs for the Tucson area," David Ritter, GIR president, says.

GIR recycles 560 tons of plastics and nearly 2,800 tons of steel yearly.
