Our story

A mission to bring efficient circularity to the technology market.


In 2017, a small group of Alchemists identified a clear market opportunity and set out on a mission to disrupt the circular solution for tech. They wanted to support the biggest tech companies to reduce their contribution to pollution by finding a better way to reuse and repurpose their devices, and in giving them a second life, make access to tech more affordable for consumers and businesses in the form of used and refurbished solutions.


‘a seemingly magical process of transformation’

These Alchemists also wanted to replace the legacy industry’s offerings that were manual, costly, and low in service. So, they developed a software enabled, fully integrated set of trade-in tools that made handing back tech as easy as when it was bought. These solutions allow our partners to drive trade-ins as a value-added experience in store or online.

Our full circular service handles tech from ‘consumer to consumer'. From trade-in to processing, data securing, cleaning, and repairing, we operate in state-of-the-art facilities in 11 countries on 4 continents and sell our refurbished products to consumers in more than 60 different markets. We resell to businesses or directly to consumers through marketplaces and our e-commerce websites: 'Loop Mobile'
