On February 2, 1992, HOBI began as a small family-operated electronics recycler in Prospect Heights, IL, focused on the retrieval and resale of electronic components and environmentally sound recycling of midrange and PBX phone equipment. Since then, we have grown to be one of the most competitive and innovative IT and mobile service providers in the country and have expanded to provide superior IT and mobile asset management service in the Chicago, Dallas, and Phoenix areas.
Despite the fast-paced industry, HOBI has been able to successfully adapt to the industry by expanding service offerings to include mobility managed services, enterprise asset services, and data center management solutions in order to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Meeting all IT, mobile, environmental, and data center concerns our clients may potentially face, HOBI exceeds industry standards and has established itself as a trusted ITAD provider by offering the highest integrity in the processing of equipment. We pioneered a system for electronics disposition focused on maximizing economic return and the eliminating potential environmental liability, which has led to the processing of more than 15 million pounds of IT equipment and more than 4 million mobile phones each year.
As an R2, RIOS, and ISO 14001 certified company, HOBI aims to help organizations, both big and small, process end-of-life electronics by delivering dependable asset management solutions that prioritizes client security, cost-efficiency, environmental well-being, legislation compliance, and reliable solutions for all stages of IT and mobile asset life cycles.
It’s our loyal clients who have made the last 24 years possible. Because of your support, HOBI has advanced in all aspects of our business. Thank you for allowing us to serve your needs. We are blessed to work with you as our very valued client and look forward to serving you for many years to come.
