20 years of making the circular economy a reality

3stepIT was founded in 1997 to offer an IT lifecycle management service, provided in a more sustainable way. The company set out to build a business to help its clients plan and manage a regular refresh of PCs and laptops, and refurbish returned equipment for resale, following a circular economy model right from the start.

The economics of this approach only made sense if devices were in good condition when returned. We developed an asset management tool to help our customers keep track of their devices and their planned refresh. 

With 20 years’ specialised experience, we have become trusted experts in the IT asset management business.

We handle customers’ used devices in our five logistics centres, securely erasing their data, after which we refurbish them for resale.

We operate in Finland, Denmark, Malaysia, 
Norway, Singapore and Sweden. Currently, we manage around 2,2 million assets for our customers and our refurbishing centres handled over 500,000 
devices in 2020, including PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
