Business Profile:

Urban Workstations takes responsibility for environmentally sustainable design. The core of our business is to recycle and re-use office workstations to meet the high standard that the corporate market demands. Often companies relocate and it is uneconomical to disassemble and transport workstations to the new office. Or they want to update to a new image. We can re-use existing assets or recycle them for future use to avoid unnecessary landfill. Our team takes the approach of working closely with the customer to ensure that the highest standards of customer service and environmental accountability is achieved.
