Now sitting under the TES umbrella, Envirofone is one of the longest running mobile phone recycler’s and have been providing customers with refurbished phones for a fraction of the recommended retail price (RRP) since 2015. Joining forces with Envirofone means 100% guarantee of all electronics will be refurbished, reused or recycled. Really emphasising on the term ‘Enviro’ in the brand name.
John Paul Doble, Director, TES consumer solutions commented
“Ever since the much-publicised acquisition, TES’ primary focus has been to put all of its energy into the relaunch of the Envirofone brand.
Our number one priority being the resolution of any legacy consumer issues, followed by the re-establishment of previous B2B partnerships and ultimately the growth period as we move to foster new relationships.
Envirofone has a long-established history of being a premier brand, which, when combined with TES’s infrastructure, enables us to position ourselves as a major player in the mobile retail space for consumer take-backs and e-commerce sales in the United Kingdom and Worldwide.
By aligning the Envirofone service offering with our already successful retail returns and trade-in business, we are able to make provision for a wider range of consumer electronics products, including but not limited to, mobile phones, laptops, iPads and gaming products, in a single online platform, both enhancing the customer journey and supporting TES’s core sustainability strategy. With an ever-growing footprint in 26 countries, our goal is to deliver the Envirofone brand on a true global scale.”
Watch this space, we will continue to add more products to Envirofone in the coming months so you can buy the latest tech without putting a huge dent in your wallet.
