In May 2008, EcoTech Recycling, LLC was established by its founder and president, Renie Duvall. Company operations are headquartered in a 25,000 sq. ft. facility at the Port of Kalama, WA. Later in 2008, a logistics warehouse was established in Tempe, Arizona and later relocated to Mesa, Arizona. The warehouse was established to better serve the immediate needs of our customers located in the Greater Phoenix area known as the Silicon Desert.
Two executive employees were hired; Bob Briehl, VP/COO formally from ON Semiconductor and Carl Nischan, VP of Sales, formally of Freescale. The core focus of EcoTech is the recycling of precious and non-precious metal scrap generated from all aspects of the semiconductor manufacturing process; both on the wafer manufacturing, or front end side of the business, and the back end, or assembly stage of the manufacturing process. EcoTech supports a wide array of customers located both domestically and internationally. EcoTech also promotes the recycling and reuse of silicon wafers, non-semiconductor manufacturing scrap, wood products, cardboard and plastics.
The Kalama facility supports the easy access from the Port Of Tacoma/Seattle, I-5 Corridor, The Port of Portland and Vancouver, The Portland International Airport, and the greater Portland Metropolitan Semiconductor area known as the Silicon Forest.
