RD Computers, Datrontech's remarketing subsidiary, is putting PC assembly on the scrapheap. In future it will be a PC disassembler(dissembler?) only. RD Computers' plant in Witham, Essex will phase out computer assembly over next year to concentrate on its IT re-cycling business. The company makes budget PCs for resale through its Nationwide Computer auction outlets. Recycling is more profitable and faster growing area, with less competition than the system building, according to Mark Mulford, Datrontech Group CEO. He said: "We want to put all of our efforts into the re-cycling side of the business. As EU regulations become stronger, companies can't just dump redundant PCs, but will have to pay to have them taken away or dispose of them legally." He added this will increase work at the Essex plant disassembling PCs for recycling, stressing the continuation of the premises and staff. Datrontech bought the company in January last year for up to five million pounds.®
