Acquisition or Partnership

Flex announced it has acquired FreeFlow, a company serving global secondary markets with asset disposition and digital circular economy tracking and reporting capabilities. FreeFlow's B2B digital marketplace platform enables customers to sell surplus and returned inventory while protecting primary sales channels. The addition expands Flex's services for customers across multiple markets, including data center, enterprise, and lifestyle, to create additional revenue streams and accelerate sustainability through second life products.

Circular Economy Services

FreeFlow's digital marketplace platform and offerings bolster the company's product lifecycle services portfolio spanning design, supply chain, advanced manufacturing, vertical integration, post-production, and post-sale capabilities. As part of post-sale services, the new offering expands existing reverse logistics and circular economy capabilities, including sustainability analytics, repair, refurbishment, asset recovery, and recycling.

Flex plans to expand FreeFlow and digital circular economy tracking and reporting capabilities into additional industry segments and major regions to help new and existing customers securely access secondary markets and drive faster adoption of sustainable solutions.
