LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., Jan. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc. (ESCS), a leading provider of forward and reverse logistics for a diverse range of electronics products and replacement parts, today announced its division Encompass Parts Distribution has launched the website GreenChoiceParts.com to market cost-effective, eco-conscious alternatives to OEM replacement parts.

Green Choice Parts are harvested from scrapped consumer electronics products that have become beyond economical repair or have cosmetic damage – primarily flat screen televisions – for use in out-of-warranty or extended warranty repairs. Parts are sourced from major retailers and rent-to-own companies that need an environmentally-responsible way to dispose of unusable products. Available components include printed circuit boards, speaker assemblies, power supply and more from top brands such as LG, Sony, Philips, Samsung, Toshiba and Panasonic, as well as a large selection of name brand appliance and computer products. Other product categories will be added in the future.

Green Choice Parts cost as much as 25% less than new parts, while providing the same functionality and reliability. Encompass provides a 180-day warranty on Green Choice Parts to help reinforce confidence in the quality of the parts.

"In addition to providing professional servicers with a less costly option to new parts, Green Choice Parts extend the life of consumer electronics by providing a channel for often hard-to-find components and making products repairable that otherwise may not be cost effective," said Robert Coolidge, President of ESCS and Encompass Parts Distribution, which manages Green Choice Parts. "Manufacturers also benefit from reduced buy outs, better parts availability for their products in the market and improved warranty costs when seeking hard to find parts."

Coolidge estimates that through Green Choice Parts, Encompass will annually divert about 7,500 pounds of electronics components from landfills.

"By recovering these parts from unsaleable goods, we are able to augment the parts supply chain, while also preventing a significant amount of e-waste from being discarded as trash."

GreenChoiceParts.com offers servicers convenient access to thousands of reclaimed parts for flat panel TVs, with plans to expand its offering of appliance, computing and imaging products. Component details and photos are available, as well as online ordering and account management. Current Encompass Parts Distribution account holders can use their existing log in and password to obtain wholesale pricing and manage their accounts. New customers can download credit and credit card applications to open an Encompass account.
