Bringing Circular Manufacturing To Electronics with Sinctronics
Flex is pioneering circular manufacturing processes that are making the information technology industry greener and more sustainable.
Creating a circular economy
“The world has been optimizing a linear economy for more than 200 years. Everything is optimized from the factory to the consumer. The circular economy is a new thing for the world. Everything we’re doing, from process and logistics to fiscal and legal, is something we’ve had to create and barriers we’ve had to overcome. It’s pure innovation here.”
- Carlos Ohde, Director General, Sinctronics
