Nashville, TENN – Leading industry players Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS) and MOLG are proud to announce a unique engagement that promises to reshape the landscape of reverse data center supply chain. This collaboration represents a bold step forward for both companies, as they combine their strengths to pioneer innovative solutions and set new standards within the industry.

The cooperation will focus on automating the repurposing of OCP data center materials. In doing so, both companies will bring scale to the expanding sector as they collectively contribute to their clients’ sustainability goals.

Key to Collaboration:

“As our data center clients continue to expand,” says Chris Fox, chief operating officer of Sims Lifecycle Services, “SLS recognizes the vital role automation will play in keeping pace with our shared growth and our collaboration with MOLG establishes industry leading processing efficiency.”

“We started MOLG with the belief that dynamic automation and circular design will usher in a new era of sustainable circular manufacturing, and we are excited to be advancing this mission with an exceptional company like SLS,” said MOLG CEO Rob Lawson-Shanks.

This strategic relationship comes at an exciting time, with SLS’s parent company, Sims Limited, being named this week as the world’s most sustainable corporation on Corporate Knights’ 2024 Global 100 Index.  As part of Sims Limited, SLS is proud to contribute to efforts that enhance the circularity of the tech sector and global decarbonization, by enabling more end-of-life assets and parts to be repurposed, reused and recycled.
