MPRO - Relocates as part of acquisition - October 2012

Halifax based CommsProvider have acquired MPRO the national mobile phone repair and recycling business. MPRO has two primary business activities, an approved repair centre for all makes of mobile phones and smart phones plus a recycling service offering to purchase redundant handsets from businesses and consumers. The repair centre is staffed by highly trained technicians using the most up to date test equipment with all repairs carrying guarantees. Additionally MPRO is one of only a small number of Samsung warranty repair centres; Samsung being the World leader in Smartphone technology. MPRO recycling purchases any redundant handsets whether working or non-working, removes all data and then disposes of them safely. A buy and sell market place function can be found on the MPRO website giving instant prices and purchasing decisions on any handset in any quantity. Handsets are collected free of charge and clients can choose to contribute to one of the companies adopted Charities from the purchase revenue. MPRO is a fantastic business for us to have in our portfolio as service is our business at CommsProvider so being able to offer a market leading repair service for mobile devices is a major advantage says Luke Hayes, CommsProvider Managing Partner. We are already one of only two Samsung Platinum Service Partners in the UK for Telephone Systems so to become an approved warranty centre for Samsung Smartphones is the perfect fit. Over the past 6 months we have doubled our staff numbers which reflects the upside of a recession since businesses look to make economies on communication bills and efficiencies in the way they work and we specialise in those areas. MPRO Managing Director Johann Shepherd who has been running mobile phone repair centres for 20 years commented The Samsung connection is very important which makes this tie up perfect synergy and our repair facilities can be extended further into the business sector with CommsProvider behind us. Obviously more and more businesses are adopting smart phone technology and this can lead to many benefits but often setting things up incorrectly creates problems and frustrations. MPRO team also specialise in helping businesses with limited I.T skills to set smartphones up and integrate them with office networks.

MPRO sign-up to new guidlines to stop the re-sale of stolen phones - March 2010

A new code of practice to stop stolen phones being sold to handset recycling companies is being developed by government, police and the mobile phone industry, Home Office Minister Alan Campbell announced today. Currently 90 per cent of handsets reported stolen in the UK are blocked within 48 hours of reporting. However phones blocked in this country can still be used abroad, and the recycling industry, which exports many handsets, potentially provides access to a new market for stolen goods. Industry figures estimate at least 100,000 handsets, with an average value of 25 pounds, which have been reported stolen to the police or blocked by their rightful owner are recycled each year. Now the Home Office, police and a range of phone recycling companies have established a forum to address the problem and are drawing up a code of best practice for mobile phone recyclers to stop stolen phones being re-used. Companies who sign up would agree to work closely with police and implement a range of safeguards, including checking handsets against the National Mobile Phone Register to see if they have been reported stolen or blocked. They would also provide details of any blocked handsets they are offered to police. Those who sign up to the code will be endorsed by industry so consumers can have confidence in the company they are dealing with. The code would be monitored to ensure they are being adhered to and sanctions would be taken against companies who fail to maintain it. Home Office Minister Alan Campbell said: Working with the private sector has already produced some positive results in the fight against mobile phone crime and both government and industry are determined to see that continue. By blocking 90 per cent of handsets within 48 hours we are already reducing the incentive for thieves to steal phones and this latest initiative will make it even less profitable for criminals. I would like to thank those recyclers who are working with us to develop this new code of practice and would urge other companies to join this forum. Jack Wraith, chairman of the Mobile Industry Crime Action Forum, said; The industry welcomes this very important initiative on the part of the recyclers as it not only closes off an avenue used by criminals to gain from theft of mobile phones it also demonstrates that those recyclers who have signed up to the scheme are serious in their efforts to support the continuing battle against mobile phone theft.

MPRO Recycle phones to help Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice - August 2009

Recycled mobile phones are now helping to bring in funds for the Oxenhope Sue Ryder Care hospice. The Mobile Phone Recycling Organisation is giving 3 to the cause for every handset it receives. A further 2 will be given for any phone that can be reconditioned and sold on. And if the phone is relatively new, it could be worth up to 200 with the difference going to the donator. MPRO Managing director Johann Shepherd said: This is an easy and environmentally friendly way to dispose of your old phone and turn it in to money for yourself as well as doing your bit for a very worthy local charity. MPRO formed two years ago was originally based in Keighley, but moved to Shipley late last year. It has recycled more than 5,000 mobile phones since 2007 and hopes to double that amount by the end of this year. Manorlands community fundraiser Matthew Binns said: I hope this new partnership will generate much needed funds for the hospice. It will cost 2 million to run all the services we offer this year and we rely on 1.2 million of this being in voluntary contributions and through schemes like this. I encourage everyone to recycle their old mobile phones by sending them to MPRO.
