UKCRA members met at Static Control’s European headquarters in Reading on Wednesday, with the meeting presented in a more conference-like style that was well received by those who attended.
After an introduction from Gerry Barnes, temporary Chairman of UKCRA, former Secretary Laura Heywood spoke on EPEAT’s recent success in securing a new industry standard, requiring manufacturers to produce cartridges that can be reused, which was followed by a talk by Peter Mayhew providing an overview of the UK and European market.
The Recycler’s David Connett then led a discussion on the impact of clones on the industry, inviting audience members to share their concerns; and raised awareness of the potential in using Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) to simplify everyday business. The latter took the form of an interactive session, with attendees asked to take a piece of paper for each business resource they use, eventually forming a breakdown of attendee business resource planning.
A tour of Static Control’s premises was also offered to members after the meeting and lunch.
