EPC, Inc. celebrates grand opening and ribbon cutting at Bush River Road facility

June 4, 2024

Growing IT asset disposition provider commemorates the opening of their new Eastern U.S. hub in Columbia, S.C.

EPC, Inc., a subsidiary of CSI Leasing, Inc. and one of the world’s largest IT asset disposition (ITAD) providers, has recently expanded its footprint in the Southeast U.S. in order to accommodate its growing service offering. They will be hosting an open house this Thursday, June 6th from 12-4PM.

The company consolidated operations from its 64,000 sq. ft. Atlanta facility and its 30,000 sq. ft. South Carolina facility into a new, larger 205,000 sq. ft. space in Columbia. The move comes after an increase in overall volume, along with a higher demand for ITAD services, such as warehousing, staging, imaging, redeployment, data destruction and recycling for both leased and non-leased equipment. The company is also seeing a higher demand for its Data Destruction and Recycling Vehicles (DDRV) to perform onsite media destruction and has several trucks based out of the new facility to service the Southeast region.

Employees from the smaller South Carolina facility, along with several from Atlanta, will staff the new facility. EPC is actively hiring for this location and plans to have at least 100 employees on staff. The facility is managed by Shaun Liles, who has been with EPC for more than 10 years.

“With this new, larger facility, we are able to better accommodate our customers’ demand for services beyond traditional ITAD, which is typically data destruction, remarketing and recycling,” said Pat Laughlin, CEO of EPC. “EPC provides these essential disposal services along with several other critical solutions that help our customers manage a complete IT lifecycle strategy. Our goal has always been to ease the burdens associated with managing an efficient IT program, and this new larger facility will help EPC deliver.”

EPC’s new facility is located at 1326 Bush River Road in Columbia, S.C. They purchased the former Walmart location off of Bush River Road and has invested $9.5M to up-fit that space, creating 133 new jobs here in Columbia. The facility will serve as the company’s East Coast hub, and will accommodate increased production.
