CALEXICO — City Councilman Alex Perrone and Ralph Morales, interim director of the city Economic and Community Development Department, met with representatives of San Diego's RMD Technologies Inc. a few days ago in an attempt to get the computer recycling company to set up operations in Calexico.
Morales recently told the City Council, seated as the city Redevelopment Agency board, that the meeting went well.
He said RMD Technologies is seriously considering branching into Calexico and, if it does, the company could eventually hire more than 100 employees.
According to RMD's Web site, the "company was formed to provide businesses and consumers with technology disposal and recycling services using proper, environmentally safe procedures. Since it began in 1999 the company has grown to offer computer pickup and disposal services throughout Southern California. Through alliances with shipping and trucking companies, RMD Technologies can handle ‘e-waste' from all over the western U.S."
