OceanTech’s warehouses are fully secured facilities where we test, evaluate, remarket and ship electronics in addition to our state-of-the-art data wiping and erasing.

Our Mission

Since 2005, OceanTech has been providing full service data center decommissioning and IT asset disposition (ITAD) services to thousands of companies throughout North America, from Fortune 500 companies, state and federal government agencies, universities and school districts, to businesses of all sizes. We are an industry-leading, environmentally responsible electronics recycling company. Our headquarters is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

How we started

OceanTech was founded in 2005 by entrepreneurs Alex Sumetsky, and Mikhail Zabezhinsky, who worked for small recyclers a decade ago while they were students at the University of Minnesota. Starting out of a garage in Plymouth, MN, We started with $300 and did not borrow any money, so all of our growth was 100% organic.
