Mazuma Mobile triumphs at industry awards

Mazuma Mobile has been named Best Secondary Market Provider at this year’s national Mobile News Awards.

The Morecambe company saw off competition in its category from Music Magpie and joined the likes of Samsung and Virgin as a winner on the night.

Mazuma Mobile rehomes around 15,000 mobile phones per month, and also buys and sells smart watches, laptops, tablets and games consoles.

The company, a sponsor of Morecambe Football Club, earned recognition from the judges for its efforts in spreading the message of sustainability to schools and the local community. The Mazuma roadshow sees staff educating primary school children on the importance of recycling and considering the effect of electronic waste on their future environment.

Craig Smith, managing director of Mazuma Mobile, said: "These awards carry a great deal of kudos with all those shortlisted being afforded the utmost respect within our industry.

“It is the first time there has been a category for the Best Secondary Market Provider and we were up against some great names. To be shortlisted in the category was fantastic but to be named as the winners was just amazing! It is a fitting reward for the hard work and dedication of all our team members which has been key to our success."
