The centre operates on the premises of the Matadorka in a 1,600 square metre facility with a 10-year lease. The company invested €300,000 to modernise the hall and acquire the necessary technologies. It employs eight people.

According to Kardoš, the parent company chose Bratislava for its advantageous geographical position in the centre of the region and low operational costs. The centre will serve clients from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Germany and Spain.

The company also offers mechanical disposal of devices. In addition to complete disposal of devices, CSI Lifecycle Europe will also dispose of sensitive data and prepare devices for reuse.

CSI Leasing is one of the largest privately-held independent technology lessors in the world. It has been operating in the field of leasing services for IT products since 1972.
