What AfB is and what it does

As Europe's first non-profit IT company, AfB is specialized in data erasure and remarketing of decommissioned IT hardware from european corporations, insurances, banks and public institutions. AfB retrieves the devices with trained personnel, transports these to the nearest AfB location. There the devices are checked, all data is removed in a certified manner and required repairs are undertaken. Throughout 18 locations and online the IT-devices are remarketed with up to three years warranty. Old or defective devices are disassembled and recycled under highest ecological and ethical standards, resulting in the production of new resources in Europe. The original owner of the devices receives all relevant reports including data destruction certificates for delivered hardware. All work steps are designed barrier-free and employees with and without disabilities work together side by side.

Goals

Promoting inclusion of diversity and bringing down barriers! In the long run, we intend to create 500 jobs for people with disabilities.
