Jabil Acquires Retronix to Advance Circular Economy Initiatives

Retronix services bolster Jabil's efforts to recover, refurbish, and recycle product components and materials to reduce electronic waste

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - November 6, 2023 - Jabil Inc. (NYSE: JBL), a global leader in design, manufacturing, and supply chain solutions, today announced the successful acquisition of

Retronix, an innovative provider in the reclamation and refurbishment of electronic
components, completed earlier this year.

"We are thrilled to welcome Retronix to the Jabil family," said Frank McKay, chief
procurement and supply chain officer at Jabil. "This acquisition demonstrates our commitment
to our customers' and our own environmental initiatives. As a trusted partner to many global
brands, Jabil feels a strong sense of responsibility to not just support sustainability for
ourselves, but to shepherd our customers towards decarbonization solutions like this — the
reuse and recycling of electronic components."

For 30 years, Retronix has been a market leader in component recovery, reballing, retinning,
and component authenticity testing services. The deal adds exclusive technologies to Jabil's
portfolio while maintaining security, quality, and certification standards. These services enable
the safe extraction of embedded valuable components from printed circuit boards (PCBs) and
other electronics to minimize waste, create new value channels, and mitigate future
component obsolescence.

The deal adds to Jabil's current circular economy services including reverse supply chain
management, medical device reprocessing, recycled packaging, and emission reductions. It
strengthens Jabil's mission to offer sustainable options to its customers who are increasing
the use of electronics in "smart" products like electronic vehicles, home appliances, medical
devices, and even packaged goods.

"Like Jabil, Retronix works with leading brands across industries such as telecommunications,
defense, automotive, and healthcare. Now, these services will be available to Jabil customers,
and together, we will strengthen the circular economy," said Jed Pecchioli, vice president of
supply chain at Jabil. "Being a part of Jabil will make an impact on sustainable manufacturing.
From product design to end-of-life, our common goal is to squeeze every bit of life out of
every material and reduce electronic waste."
