What we’re all about…


At Agilico we’re on a journey to build a better future for our people and planet. We’re proud to be the UK’s pioneering Circular-First Managed Print Services business, leading sustainability in our sector.

Instead of the traditional ‘take-make-waste’ model, where resources are used once and then discarded, our circular-first managed print services centre around refurbishing and recycling Multi-Functional Devices (MFDs) and parts wherever possible to cut carbon emissions, reduce landfill waste and provide a more cost-effective solution for our customers.

  • Replace defective parts with new or refurbished ones.

  • Clean and refurbish MFDs to a high standard.
  • Rebuild and reassemble MFD units, ensuring all components are in optimal working condition.
  • Update firmware and software as required.

Quality Control:

  • Perform final quality checks on refurbished MFDs.
  • Ensure all refurbished units meet company standards and customer expectations.
  • Maintain accurate records of repairs and refurbishments.

Inventory Management:

  • Manage and maintain inventory of spare parts and tools.
  • Order new parts as needed to maintain stock levels.
  • Track usage and report any discrepancies.

Health and Safety:

  • Adhere to all health and safety guidelines and regulations.
  • Maintain a clean and safe working environment.
  • Report any hazards or incidents immediately to the Workshop Manager.

Documentation and Reporting:

  • Document all work performed on each MFD.
  • Provide detailed reports on completed refurbishments and repairs.
  • Maintain logs of parts used and time spent on each task.

What we can offer you…

  • Opportunities to progress and grow your career
  • 23 days holiday plus bank holidays, rising to 28 days after 5 years
  • Stakeholder pension scheme & death in service benefit.
  • Agile Perks reward platform offering discounts and great deals
