Today, 67 percent of the European office’s annual revenue is attributed to overseas, international sales.

Speaking about Global Resale’s success, Group CEO, Jeff Zeigler commented:

“We are incredibly honoured Global Resale has received this distinguished award and couldn’t be happier with the growth of our European business” said Jeff Zeigler, CEO of Global Resale. “I am extremely proud that the refurbished technology products we provide are used all over the world and have a positive role to play in the current COVID-19 pandemic. We have continued to deliver strong growth to our European customers whilst responding to the complexities arising out of Brexit.” Jeff Zeigler concluded.

During the pandemic, Global Resale has demonstrated that refurbished products are a great solution for organisations enabling their operations to continue and support the home working environment.
