We Carry Obselete Brands just for you!

“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” can be valuable advice to any enterprise trying to keep a close eye on business expenditures, but if it is broken, you’ll want it fixed in the most efficient way possible. For older electrical equipment that has performed well into old-age but is now showing signs of fatigue and is maybe halfway to the bone yard, the first idea for getting things back to normal may be replacement. Replacement of your older systems with new, higher-tech (albeit more expensive) equipment, though, is only one potential solution. An alternative would be to fix existing equipment back to proper working order, if possible. At Civic Recycling we carry Obselete Brands!

Reconditioned as Good as New

Why replace an entire system when only small parts of it are giving you trouble? Repairing instead of replacing is almost always the less expensive route to take. It takes less time and money to replace a single bad breaker with a high-quality (though obsolete) reconditioned one than it takes to replace an entire panel. In addition, having access to lightning-quick service like we provide here at Civic Recycling can save an operation a great deal of down time, providing more savings.

What’s It Going to Take?

If you’re dealing with equipment that’s gone out-of-date or been discontinued, proper parts can be difficult to locate/obtain. That’s where a specialist dealing in obsolete electrical equipment becomes so important. Finding obsolete parts like circuit breakers from Bulldog, Sylvania, Commander, CEB, Westinghouse, Cutler-Hammer, GE, ITE, Square D, Siemens and Taylor is certainly possible, especially for someone able to surf the Internet for potential providers. Once your item has been found, however, it’s critical that you ensure it’s been properly refurbished, tested and certified to perform as it should. A written guarantee is also a plus. Our surplus supply will make sure you always have what you need.

Consult the Certified Specialists in New and Used Electrical Equipment

Being certified in reconditioning and testing used, obsolete equipment is no small deal. Our technicians are PEARL-certified. This sets us apart from all our Canadian competitors. PEARL, the Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League, is approved by ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, setting regulatory standards longer than anyone, as an accredited Standards Developer.

Our technicians are trained and experienced in totally reconditioning used and obsolete breakers, repairing where needed, testing, certifying and then guaranteeing each unit we sell for a year’s time. When you need new and used electrical equipment, think of being civic and, when possible, recycling! Call us.
