Galaxy Wins The Innovation Award

posted in General News by

We are really excited to announce that Galaxy CI Ltd won the Innovation Award at the Awards for Achievement event on the 9th February 2017. The following details and judges comments were provided.

Galaxy Computers is the only dedicated ISO Accredited data destruction and hardware recycling specialist in the Channel Islands that provides a secure, onsite service.

The five person specialist team provides education to businesses about the risks associated with data loss and cost effective ways of mitigating those risks and the resulting reputational damage.

Galaxy operates a ZERO to landfill policy that has contributed to it winning the “Keep Guernsey Green” award twice.

Judges Comments

  • A well thought out entry with plenty of examples to show the data destruction techniques it has developed over the years from log splitting machines to state of the art shredding and degaussing and how the business might continue to develop in the future.
  • I particularly liked the business links with Guernsey Prison and how prisoners have been motivated to do practical work in breaking down equipment for recycling.
  • This is a business which has great sustainability credentials with its recycling of old computer equipment and which is set to grow further as new data protection requirements are introduced.
