Wilson & Co, a prominent Vauxhall automotive dealership group in the North of England with sites across Greater Manchester and Lincolnshire has taken steps to minimise their carbon emissions whilst significantly reducing their waste management spend.
Through Wilson & Co’s partnership with The Purchasing Agency, specialists in the supply chain management of automotive dealership groups, and Slicker Recycling, the UK’s leading provider of hazardous waste management, Wilson & Co have streamlined their supply chain. Slicker Recycling will be providing a comprehensive waste management service offering waste oil, workshop waste, and dry waste collections, as well as interceptor services and parts washer rentals. By consolidating these services under one Slicker supplier, Wilson & Co have made their waste management much simpler, and have made significant cost savings, benefiting their bottom-line.
Carbon Footprint Stamp Down
In addition to the cost savings, Wilson & Co have also significantly reduced their carbon emissions. Slicker Recycling is one of only a few service providers in the UK with a stake in base oil re-refining. Their joint venture facility, based in Kalundbord Denmark, will process the used oil collected from Wilson & Co’s sites into a base oil, a key ingredient in the production of new lubricating oils. This product emits 30% less CO2 than base oil produced from crude oils and diverts the used oil from being burnt as a fuel in the energy or marine markets, further reducing potential carbon emissions.
Tom Wilson, Director at Wilson & Co has said,
“As a forward-thinking business, we are always looking to find new ways to innovate and improve our existing processes. By working with The Purchasing Agency and Slicker Recycling, we have found an excellent solution, helping to simplify our waste management whilst also reducing our carbon footprint, something that we are proud to shout about.”
Laura Carter, Commercial Director at Slicker Recycling has said,
“We are happy to support such a prominent automotive dealership group such as Wilson & Co with their waste management. We always endeavour to meet our customer’s requirements through excellent service, competitive pricing and sustainable waste management.”
