Miele representative joins Valpak board

Valpak has appointed Miele administration and facilities director Antony Stephens to the Valpak board as a non executive director with effect from January 2.

The move comes in response to the implementation of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive in the UK. Miele is the UK subsidiary of the family-owned and run Miele Group, a leading European domestic appliance manufacturer. In the UK the company has over 320 employees and sales of over £120 million. It plans to sell over 200,000 domestic appliances and around the same number of vacuum cleaners in 2007.

Both parties expressed their pleasure at the appointment. Joining Valpak allows my company to be provided with the strongest levels of assurance and competitive compliance. They are market leaders in their own field and this position will allow me to ensure that WEEE producers and retailers are receiving all of the advice, guidance and reassurance they need from a WEEE producer compliance scheme, Stephens said.

Valpak chief executive Steve Gough added: We always wish to deliver the highest levels of service to our members and having such a well known and respected name as Miele on the Board will ensure that these standards are maintained and improved. Their technical experience and practical knowledge of the sector is a major asset to the scheme.
