Ingram Micro


On March 18, 2015, information technology company Ingram Micro announced that it would be further expanding its reach in the Latin American market by acquiring Tech Data’s Peruvian and Chilean businesses. The acquisition was intended to enhance the company’s existing operations in Peru and Chile while also providing further opportunities for the company to add services in mobility, supply chain solutions and cloud.

In May 2019, Ingram Micro announced the opening of a new IT asset disposition (ITAD) facility in Lima, Peru. The company intends to provide data erasure, drive destruction, processing, remarketing and recycling services at the new facility. The Lima location is the company’s fourth new ITAD facility of 2019. The company has existing South American facilities in Brazil and Colombia.

Bournemouth is an ideal location for the facility as it allows the company to merge its MRO operations with the global headquarters and with the Oxford airport. Total cost of consolidation and restoration of the Bournemouth facility was estimated to be $1.5 million, with over $90 million of long-term support contracts for special-mission aircraft.

When we reported last month on the economic development promise behind new federal legislation regarding industrial hemp cultivation, we didn’t know a barnburner of a project was just around the corner. Last week, in the state that’s No. 1 in acreage devoted to hemp cultivation, Mile High Labs, the largest manufacturer of CBD isolate in the world, announced the purchase of a 400,000-sq.-ft. foot pharmaceutical production facility in Broomfield, Colorado. “We plan to leverage this tremendous infrastructure to build the global center for CBD products manufacturing,” said Stephen Mueller, chief technology officer and founder, Mile High Labs.

Originally based in Longmont, Mile High’s production moved to a larger building in Loveland in 2017. The company began looking for a larger facility after the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and created what the company says is unprecedented demand for CBD.
