AfB social & green IT

AfB is Europe's largest non-profit IT company, specialized in acquiring used business IT, certified data erasure, refurbishment and remarketing. Devices that are no longer marketable are dismantled and professionally recycled. This preserves the environment and saves valuable resources. AfB stands for "Arbeit für Menschen mit Behinderung" (Work for people with disabilities). All process steps are barrier-free, because at AfB people with and without disabilities work hand in hand.
