In the first of a series of blogs in which we showcase our expert team, we interview Dr. Steve Medcalf, Business Development Manager (Waste Water) at Biochemca Water Ltd, now part of Veolia Water Technologies UK.
Biochemica Water Ltd., now part of Veolia Water Technologies UK (VWT UK) recently delivered a bespoke chemical solution to its long standing client, a leading rPET pellet and flake manufacturer. Crucially, it was necessary for the rPET pellets to adhere to the minimum cleanliness requirements of recycled plastic packaging for the food industry. As such the company required a chemical solution with superior cleaning qualities to ensure compliance every time.
With the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the world is experiencing an unprecedented situation. At Biochemica Water Ltd our highest priority is the safety of our employees, customers and suppliers, however we also understand the need to maintain all core operations. The nature of our business means that the systems and services we provide are crucial to organisations with vital functions, such as the NHS, utilities, pharmaceutical and other key industrial manufacturing sectors.
All of our office-based staff are now working remotely to minimise travel and contact; all of our teams can still be contacted when needed via phone and email. Scheduled meetings will continue but will be conducted using teleconferencing facilities. Our engineers are still visiting customer sites to ensure that service delivery is maintained and will be complying with all additional safety measures put in place at each site.
