Axil signs ‘waste management systems’ deal with BMW

Consultancy Axil Integrated Services announced last week (27 September) it had signed a deal with BMW Group to “re-engineer” the car manufacturer’s waste management systems.

Axil will introduce changes to chemical, technical and logistical processes across all BMW’s manufacturing and corporate sites in the UK

Axil said the five-year contract of undisclosed value would see it introduce changes to chemical, technical and logistical processes across all BMW’s manufacturing and corporate sites in the UK, including at Oxford, Chichester and Swindon, amongst others.

The changes are designed to optimise the handling, segregation and management of waste, Axil said.

Jason Lang, Axil’s commercial director, said BMW Group was a “pioneer of innovation”, including in its approach to sustainability.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the team to reengineer waste streams to drive an increase in recycling and waste remediation,” Mr Lang added.

“Businesses today, particularly in the manufacturing sector, are facing unprecedented economic strain, but partnerships like this one are crucial to ensuring we maintain momentum on reaching ESG ambitions across the industry.”

Partnership

As part of the contract, Axil will introduce waste-capturing technology to track and attribute waste to specific areas of BMW’s business, allowing them to understand better where to “build in efficiencies”.

And, Axil will introduce a “relief mobile operative support team” that will staff and man sites, “allowing for smooth operation of waste management activities throughout the partnership.”

Axil says it offers waste management solutions to “some of the UK’s best-known brands” across a range of sectors including aerospace, automotive, food and pharmaceuticals.
