Our technology centres in Germany and Norway have been your partner for asset collection, data erasure, refurbishment, and remarketing for over 20 years.
Data security requires a holistic solution, not an isolated one – and this is reflected in CHG-MERIDIAN's consultancy approach. In our mind, data security starts with choosing the equipment and classifying the security levels. But the biggest challenge is right at the end of the lifecycle, when it comes to completely and permanently erasing data on old IT equipment.
Our Technology Centers in Gross-Gerau and Skien provide the perfect solutions for a wide range of asset equipment types, from computers and mobile devices to printers.
The thoroughness of the data erasure or destruction process depends on your individual security requirements. We offer a data erasure solution that provides a high level of process reliability: eraSURE®.
Only certified erasure can provide the peace of mind needed when reselling IT equipment on the secondary market.

You are welcome to see for yourself how we live and breathe transparency at our Technology Centers in Gross-Gerau and Skien. You can observe our processes in detail during a guided tour and see how we thoroughly clean and refurbish your used IT equipment.
Which PC is currently being refurbished? How many printers need to be scrapped? Were smartphones fully refurbished, ready to be sold on the secondary market? Our technology and service management system, TESMA®, can help you answer these questions. The TESMA® end-of-life module enables seamless asset tracking, so you can keep complete track of what is happening to the decommissioned technology you have entrusted to us. All process steps and serial numbers are documented for your internal audit.
At our Technology Centers, used equipment undergoes sustainable visual and technical refurbishment in line with the principles of green IT. We thoroughly analyze the technology and remove anything that can identify the previous owner, thus retaining the residual value. This is the ideal way to prepare the equipment for remarketing, which generates welcome additional returns for you. And we make good use of our diverse international network of certified partners and wholesalers for the secondary market. We support them with flexible collection options, special packaging to protect against damage, buyer compliance checks, attractive equipment packages, price calculations, and recommendations for the best sales markets, for example. Any equipment that cannot be reused is sustainably returned to the material cycle through our certified recycling partners. CHG-MERIDIAN’s environmental management at both technology centers is ISO 14001-certified.
We take care of the refurbishment of your IT assets and are remarketing specialists, which means we can even remarket older hardware after it has been thoroughly refurbished.
We will assist you with the delivery of your new hardware and offer individual software distribution. We support you along the entire process chain so that everything is in the right place at the right time.
At the end of the IT lifecycle our experts arrange the deinstallation of old assets and take care of the collection, refurbishment, and remarketing.
To protect your data from third parties, we offer data erasure solutions for a variety of storage media. Our certified data erasure is individually tailored to your protection requirements and data categories. You can choose between the eraSURE® and the eraSURE®+ process.
To maximize the value of your old assets, they are optically and technically refurbished, analyzed, and tested. Any identifiers of the previous owner are removed, and any missing components are added before the item is repackaged.
We have well-established expertise in the professional testing and refurbishing all IT devices, regardless of their manufacturer or individual requirements. We document this in the configuration and condition description, and our flexible collection options and protective packaging ensure that assets are not damaged during transport. We also create packages with equipment that sells quickly and easily, calculate fair prices, and recommend the best sales markets.
Our Technology Centers ensure end-to-end data security and transparency in all procedures, the useful return of IT devices to the value cycle, and the remarketing of used assets.
