Recycler of electronics picks Reno for 60-employee facility

Intechra, a Mississippi-based company that handles disposition of technology hardware, expects to employ 60 at a new facility in Stead.

The company last week said it leased 76,795 square feet at 9085 Moya Blvd. and has contracted with the Reno office of Staffmark to staff the facility.

It's already hired 34 employees.

Brian Beinfest, general operations manager for Intechra, said the company selected a Reno location because of its proximity to West Coast customers and its strong logistics infrastructure.

The company's other asset-disposition centers are in Ohio, Texas, Connecticut, Ohio, New Hampshire and North Carolina. Privately held Intechra is headquartered at Ridgeland, Mississippi.

The company has been recycling computers and related gear since 1987 and handles more than 2 million computers and component parts annually.

It sells some recycled computers, and it scraps the rest. Intechra holds eight patents on techniques and equipment to recycle printed wiring assemblies.

The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada, which worked with NV Energy to land the Intechra facility, estimates first-year economic impact at $4.4 million.

David Cantwell of Jones Lang LaSalle represented Intechra in its real estate negotiations. Panattoni Development, owner of the building, was represented by NAI Alliance of Reno.
