Brunel Healthcare is the UK’s leading manufacturer of vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements. Based in Swadlincote and employing 500 people across four sites, the company specialises in private label and contract manufacture of shelf-ready goods for the global marketplace.
Brunel has reappointed Willshee’s to provide total waste management across all four sites – including the supply of onsite compactors and balers. This means Brunel can now recycle in the most effective and cost-efficient way.
Brunel Healthcare warehouse & services manager Colin Sturgess has been working with Willshee’s for nearly 10 years, and commented:
“We enjoy a really productive and rewarding partnership approach with the Willshee’s team. Despite working together for nearly a decade, the standard of account management is consistently excellent. We’re always looking at new ways to further improve our carbon footprint and environmental legacy and Willshee’s continue to re-evaluate our waste streams and look for new and innovative solutions. This really adds value. For example, some of our waste now goes to an anaerobic digestion plant rather than becoming Refuse Derived Fuel. Anaerobic digestion is higher up the waste hierarchy, recycling more and reducing our levels of general waste – which is good news for us, and good news for the environment.”Colin Sturgess
