reBuy’s expansion in Europe
The Berlin-based company started in Germany and expanded to neighbouring countries like France, Austria and the Netherlands. Last year, the company launched its website in the United Kingdom and now it’s time to go to Southern Europe, with the launch of rebuy.it and rebuy.es.
“The launch of our online store in the two growth markets of Italy and Spain is another step in our ambition to become the leading re-commerce company in Europe for used electronics”, CEO Torsten Schero says.
Reducing electronics waste
Data from the European Commission shows that up to 12 million tons of electronics waste are produced within the European Union by 2020. reBuy wants to reduce this number by buying second-hand mobile phones and other electronic devices and extending their lifespan.
