Giving Used Technology a New Life
Founded by Wade S. Luther in February of 1996, North American Technology Exchange specializes in the end of life management of excess and obsolete technology inventory.
We believe that every piece of technology should have a chance to be reused. Whether it is a stick of memory or a complete data center, we can offer customers a fair value for their equipment. Our first goal is to find reuse for the technology and that is what this site is about. Selling equipment back into the marketplace. All equipment comes with a 30 day warranty and can be returned if you are not completely satisfied.
If the technology can not be resold then it is sent to our sister company, R2 Disassembly, LLC. R2 Disassembly, LLC is R2 certified, ISO 140001 and OSHAS 18001 state-of-the-art facility designed with the purpose of recycling end-of-life electronics in the United States .
