Lowe and Oliver are pleased to bring you another service from our sister company Canopus with the impending GDPR applying from May 2018. Canopus Solutions Limited are industry specialists in the area of secure data destruction and IT asset disposal. Our range of services have been developed in response to the increasing importance of data protection legislation, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) directive, UK (England & Wales) waste legislation, and the hazardous waste act, all of which make businesses responsible for the ethical disposal of used IT equipment. As part of J Brand, with a business philosophy based around “My Customer, My Responsibility” many clients see Canopus Solutions as a key “strategic partner” with a determination to deliver solutions on time, within budget and to a first class standard.
