Founded by Mel Hall and Jim Campbell in 1991, Bass Computers, Inc. focuses on providing quality products and solutions to our customers. Beginning as a wholesale distributor of technology items, over the years, we have expanded our team, our facility, and our services. In addition to selling computer products, we also offer a wide array of security solutions and equipment. Operating in a 56,000’ facility in Southwest Houston, Bass Computers has built many strong partnerships and strives to provide excellent service to all of our customers.

Always looking for new ways to assist our customers, we created the Bass Computer Recycling department in 2007 after being approached by many customers about discarding their old electronics. Our vast experience in the technology industry enabled us to develop environmentally responsible solutions for their IT Asset Disposal. Our Electronic Recycling Specialists work with a variety of organizations to design a complete solution that focuses on recycling, repurposing, and if necessary, proper disposal in accordance with a strict no-landfill policy. We work with several different industries, including K-12, higher education, government, medical, Oil and Gas, and many more. Committed to the highest industry standards, our facility is R2v3 (Responsible Recycling), ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 45001:2018 certified.

One of our most important priorities in our solutions is data destruction. We know it is crucial to protect the data of our customers. Offering both data erasure and hard drive shredding, our procedures ensure your information is safe from pick-up to destruction.

Realizing that a great deal of technology still has value, Bass Computer Recycling makes every effort to refurbish rather than recycle equipment.  Our technicians test, refurbish, clean and repackage electronics for resale. This not only helps conserve natural resources, but also enables us to help you maximize your return on your technology investment.

Bass Computers has evolved in many ways over the years, but our customers always come first. That’s why after so many years, we are still “hooked on customer satisfaction”.
