About Comprenew


Comprenew began in 1986 as a for-profit refurbisher of mainframe computer equipment serving leasing companies, becoming the foremost refurbisher and repairer of IBM 5080 CADCAM equipment in the 1990s. By 1992, Comprenew was refurbishing and shipping an average of 1,000 terminals per week.


When personal computers became available, companies began to purchase rather than lease them. This greatly increased the number of computers entering the waste stream, so Comprenew expanded its recycling activity to help reduce the environmental threat. In 2004, Comprenew became a nonprofit organization and expanded its activities to include programs through which we serve approximately 80 people per day.
