DTC International Ltd has again been successful in gaining funding from Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership’s (NEP) INV-ENT (Innovation & Enterprise) fund. The funding will be used to support and expand DTC’s cable recovery and recycling operations to the global telecom industry.
In response to the global migration of telecom operators from copper cable to fibre optic infrastructure, DTC’s reverse logistics service directly addresses the recovery of this sunken, obsolete asset. This infrastructure, often untouched in the
ground owing to perceived removal costs and logistical difficulties and low network priority, is removed, providing investment recovery and sustainability benefits.
NEP’s INV-ENT program enables funds to be reinvested into businesses to stimulate development, innovation, growth and to create new jobs. The fund was developed in 2011 and to date has invested £550,000 into enterprises in Northamptonshire. The funding will be used to support specialist equipment purchases and to provide additional skills training for DTC recovery engineers complementing DTC’s other established services.
