Niagara business successful in refurbishing rugged tech

It’s easy to miss where they’re located, but hard not to know the companies they’ve dealt with.

Tucked away inside a largely non-descript white building off the Queen Elizabeth Way in Niagara-on-the-Lake, near the Niagara Falls border, tech-savvy employees refurbish rugged technology, such as laptops and tablets, which are then sold to small and large businesses.
