Spares specialist First Choice Group has turned to surplus equipment handler Ramco to help manage surplus, slow-moving or redundant items that were consuming warehouse space and ultimately preventing the company from achieving optimal operational productivity.
In need of a compliant, effective and sustainable asset management solution, the First Choice Group approached Ramco in the summer of 2019 in the hope of implementing a reliable and established process for the removal of unwanted goods.
Since then, Ramco has arranged regular collections amounting to over 200 lots comprising a large variety of foodservice equipment parts. All items were effectively and efficiently repurposed, reused and resold, with First Choice receiving a financial return from the sale of its goods.
This initiative extends the product lifecycle of resources, ensures that they retain their value and, above all, prevents the goods from being unnecessarily scrapped or sent to landfill. In doing so, the First Choice Group was able to make a significant contribution towards reducing its environmental footprint.
Combined with a considerable reduction in waste, the spares business has been able to minimise its storage and disposal costs, ultimately creating a more eco-friendly, productive and competitive operation.
Julian Fisher, head of marketing at First Choice Group said: “Never have sustainability and environmental concerns been more prominent than in today’s business world. We’re pleased to form a close working partnership with Ramco who, through the effective reuse and resale of unused materials, have provided us with a safe, sustainable and future proof solution for the removal of surplus assets.”
