IT recycling company AMI will create 30 jobs over the next two years as part of a €4m investment, the firm has announced.

The jobs will be shared across AMI’s Dublin and Belfast locations, and will bring its total workforce to 90 by 2021.

Founded in 2001, AMI disposes and reuses IT, mobile and electrical equipment. It also offers secure hard drive and media shredding services through a subsidiary called DiskShred, which operates in 13 European countries.

The €4m investment by AMI will also facilitate the company’s recently launched deployment and relocation service, which handles IT refreshes and office moves.

Some €570,000 of the planned investment derives from an investment by Rob Clarke, who will take up the position of chairman of AMI’s board. Debt finance (€1.7m) and retained earnings of €1.7m comprise the rest of the expansion funds.

AMI more than doubled its workforce from 25 to 60 in the last three years and reported that revenues have grown by over 50% in the past two years to €8m.

CEO Philip McMichael said that that GDPR compliance is fuelling demand for AMI’s services. “The additional hires, expanded premises and the development of our technology and service capabilities will all support us in meeting this increasing demand,” he added.

“Acquisition is another key business strategy for us. We will remain on the lookout for other IT disposal and IT installation businesses with matching values that can easily integrate into the company, allowing us to quickly enhance our offering.”

Rob Clarke described AMI as a great example of an Irish business success story. “It’s refreshing to see a company not rest on its laurels but instead pursue ambitious growth targets with a clear expansion plan in mind. In my role as chairman, I hope to use my experience to help AMI achieve these goals and to consolidate its position as the leading IT recycling company on the island of Ireland.”
