MARUBENI AND NORDIC MOBILE TRUST ANNOUNCE STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP FOR EXPANSION

April 14th, 2022

 

We are thrilled to announce that Marubeni Corporation, one of Japan's largest trading companies, has agreed to a strategic partnership, and capital investment in us. Our mission is to disrupt the second hand-device market by providing a platform that enables an easy, eco-friendly, trustworthy, and sustainable way for consumers to sell and buy used mobile devices. Marubeni aims to develop the Consumer-to-Consumer C2C market for used smartphones in Japan and globally through its partnership with us.

 

Considering the estimated ASP’s (Average Selling Prices) of used smartphones, the market shows huge potential for our business model. Consumers have realized that the most sustainable way is to have a secondhand device. Our platform is built with a circular economy, and sustainability in mind. 

 

The market of used smartphones is expanding rapidly due to a rising interest in the circular economy. The worldwide shipments of used smartphones are expected to increase significantly. Reusing smartphones leads to decrease in production of new devices, as well as emissions throughout the value chain.

 

“Marubeni is delighted to announce the investment into Nordic Mobile Trust Oy (NMT). With NMT's members, technology and know-how, Marubeni is planning to expand its ICT business in the C2C market through NMT’s sustainable and eco-friendly platform. Marubeni aims to contribute to the development of the circular economy through this investment.”, says Masamichi Morita, General Manager, ICT Business Dept. II, Marubeni Corporation.

 

“Through our partnership with Marubeni, we will have the necessary support in becoming the global leader in the re-used mobile devices market. Circular economy solutions are needed to safeguard biodiversity and solve the climate crisis.” says Jyri Roselius, CEO & Co-Founder of Nordic Mobile Trust Oy.
