ECS was founded in 1980 by Jim and Ken Taggart as a processor of
post-manufacturing scrap and residues for OEMs in the Silicon Valley. As the electronics industry enjoyed rapid growth and manufacturing operations were outsourced to other parts of the world, ECS adapted by shifting its focus to processing post-consumer electronics. Through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, ECS developed new competencies in end-of-life value recovery to become a vertically integrated electronics recycler.

In recent years, the widespread use of electronics in the private sector has created a demand for sophisticated services that go above and beyond traditional shred-and-separate commodity recovery. ECS has developed value-add and remarketing solutions that allow businesses to maximize the value of their electronics while protecting their brand and data.
