The two companies will draw from each of their strengths: Valpaks producer compliance expertise and Wincantons supply chain skills, to develop and market their new services.
Valpak chief executive Steve Gough said: Were delighted to announce our partnership with Wincanton and to be able to offer businesses a strategic approach to the impact of the WEEE directive.
A WEEE services package offering clients turnkey and bespoke solutions is planned through the partnership, with Valpak registering the producer and managing producer compliance and Wincanton designing and managing the transport and treatment solutions. The two companies said this approach would minimise costs and maximise efficiencies for the client.
Wincanton industrial managing director Gordon Scott said the partnership will allow us to deliver a unique, cost effective WEEE compliance solution to our customers.
