Cascade Company Information

Cascade Asset Management (Cascade) was formed in 1999 to provide comprehensive information technology equipment retirement services for businesses, institutions and municipalities. The company now operates full scale processing facilities in Wisconsin and Indiana and collects between 200 - 400 tons of computers, office electronics, consumer electronics and test equipment each month from sites across North America.

Corporate Headquarters & Processing Facility - Cascade’s headquarters is in Madison, Wisconsin where it occupies a stand-alone 42,000 square foot facility with just over 25,000 square feet dedicated to processing activities (collection, consolidation, inventory, data wiping, media destruction, testing services, demanufacturing for recycling, and shredding.) The original building was constructed in 2005 with a 9,000 square foot addition added in 2007. The facility houses Cascade support and administrative operations, as well. The building is secure and was constructed with green design and construction materials featured throughout.


Indiana Processing Facility - Cascade’s Indianapolis facility, conveniently situated in the "crossroads of America," includes over 15,000 square feet of production and office space (used for collection, consolidation, inventory, data wiping, media destruction, testing services, demanufacturing for recycling, and shredding.) The facility is also a green building with high efficiency lighting, inert building materials, and natural landscaping. The building is secure with concrete walls, surveillance within and outside the building, access controls, and motion sensors.


Scope and Capabilities - Each location features hauling and logistics services, asset control and tracking, refurbishing and repair, demanufacturing of equipment for recycling, and secure media destruction through electronic scrubbing of hard drives and physical destruction by shredding and punching of two inch holes through the drives. Whatever cannot be reused is disassembled using an optimal mix of physical and mechanical demanufacturing techniques to separate out hazardous materials from recyclable components. Disassembled commodities are sent to appropriate markets and processors for final treatment, with no hazardous waste being shipped to developing countries.


Ownership - Cascade is a privately held company still owned and operated by the original founders. The company is a registered Minority Business Enterprise in the State of Wisconsin and through the National Minority Supplier Development Council. As a family run business with a deep commitment to creating long-term value for its clients, Cascade is well positioned to create and develop long term, mutually beneficial partnerships with its clients.


Growth and Future - Cascade has demonstrated significant growth since inception, and has been named to Inc. Magazine's list of the fastest growing private companies in America (2007, 2008, 2010, 2011). The company has a solid reputation, diversified customer base, talented and committed staff, and a commitment to being a leader in IT asset retirement in North America.
