Blue Cube is a proactive, ambitious and blossoming company. Nurturing partnerships with both clients and our manufacturing partners are two foundations of our commitment to offering a best-in-class service. In this, our latest blog, we focus on our relationships with our British manufacturing partners. What are the principle benefits this partnership delivers for our customers?
1) Reduces carbon footprint
Carbon footprint is defined by the WWF as:
" the total amount of greenhouse gas released in the production and. consumption of all the goods and services you use."
Given that half of the UK's carbon footprint emissions (2020: 326.1 million tonnes (Mt)) derives from overseas activities, on-shoring manufacturing is a positive step. Naturally, anything "Made in Britain" will utilise a global supply chain but crucially, the design and explicit manufacturing process is carried out in the UK.
Blue Cube only uses UK manufacturers. All have an expertise in the manufacturing of the portable temperature controlled solutions we offer. Why not contact our team if you would like more detailed information about how this can benefit your operation?
2) Engenders closer partnership
Portable temperature controlled units are a specialist solution. This means we are able to focus on a genuine partnership with a defined number of manufacturers. Specifically, this enables us to play an active role in product development. We utilise this to work on optimising the performance across our product portfolio, especially in relation to them becoming ever more energy efficient. The best example of this is our brand new Ultra Range. Please click here if you would like to learn more about this.
3) Optimises lead times
The close relationship we have with our manufacturing partners is pivotal for coordinating production slots for new units to join our portfolio. We are committed to continue to expand this portfolio every year.
4) Benefits economy and national employment
As the world gradually reopens from the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic, our partnerships supports the country's manufacturing sectors and the employment this generates. Working with these manufacturers also reduces red tape and more broadly ensures that the entire process runs more efficiently.
We would love to hear from you!
