Press release takeover emXcore

Zoetermeer, February 2023 – The life-time optimization specialist of used data center equipment emXcore becomes part of Circular IT group. Together with Circular IT Group, emXcore will focus on accelerated growth in Europe and contributing to a circular economy, the two companies announced. EmXcore will focus primarily on the Juniper and Arista brands.

Green impact

The functionality of data center equipment is almost completely preserved during use. Large telecom and hosting companies tend to replace their equipment with new models that are just slightly faster. For most companies, these nuances in capacity are irrelevant, and renewed equipment offers an excellent alternative to much more expensive new equipment, according to Circular IT Group.

“The combination of good equipment and emXcore’s technical expertise in Juniper and Arista means that emXcore can ensure top quality,” according to both parties. “After secure data removal and testing of the used equipment, it is prepared for a second life. emXcore uses its expertise to set up each piece of equipment to the customer’s specific needs. This way, all components are used as efficiently as possible. This reduces the flow of electronic waste and the need to extract critical raw materials for new apprature. Besides top quality and favorable cost, emXcore also offers customers an opportunity to become greener.”

Market leader in refurbished netwerking equipment

Circular IT Group already offers a wide range of networking equipment from Cisco and other brands. The group wants to be able to serve all its international customers’ networking needs, and with Arista and Juniper, Circular IT Group and emXcore cover the top three brands in the networking equipment market. With the two largest Dutch parties under one roof, customers will have access to a ‘one-stop shop’ with extensive knowledge, a full range of renewed IT hardware and related services.

Alex Beverwijk, founder emXcore: “emXcore has been delivering high-end refurbished data center solutions from Juniper Networks and Arista Networks to customers worldwide for over 10 years. Together with the Circular IT Group we can further strengthen our leading position in the field of refurbished Juniper and Arista and further expand our service portfolio. This will allow us to serve our customers even better and in the process contribute to the transformation to a circular economy in our industry.”

Jean-Pierre Verhoeven, interim-CEO Circular IT group: “The addition of emXcore to Circular IT Group’s portfolio allows us to offer best-of-breed networking solutions from the world’s leading networking equipment vendors (Cisco Systems, Juniper and Arista). This combined with the services of the Circular IT Group, gives customers such as Service/cloud providers and startups and scale-ups an attractive alternative to new equipment where the carbon footprint can also be reduced.”
