We have been shortlisted as a contender for a Resource Revolution Award 2013 in the Closed Loop Exemplar category.
Our business follows the closed loop model by using the potential waste of one vehicle to rebuild another. In the past two years we have saved and prolonged the life of over 150 vehicles, which is equivalent to around 1400 tons of raw materials.
It’s great to be recognised for the work we do especially as the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has also selected Refuse Vehicle Solutions as an excellent example of the circular economy. A case study about us now features on their website click here for more information.
The winners of the awards are being announced at an
event in London on Friday 10 May.
RVS’ paint and bodywork partner, AGD Equipment was set up in the 1950’s by the Law family and has been run by Spencer’s cousin, Robert Law and his family since the 1970’s.
Based in Stratford upon Avon, AGD employs 70 people and specialises in the rental and sales of heavy equipment such as cranes and piling equipment to the construction sector. The company has a specialist painting division with purpose-built facilities that can accommodate heavy vehicles and equipment up to 20m long and 6m wide.
Equipped with heavy lifting facilities, a sophisticated part-automated wash system that recycles water and a drying oven that produces fully hardened paint-work in under an hour, AGD uses the latest electrostatic paint technology to ensure even coverage. The results are outstanding and all RVS refuse vehicles are given the AGD treatment before being delivered complete with a one year paintwork warranty.
Robert Law, Managing Director said: “It’s great to work with family and we have worked with Spencer for over 13 years. RVS produces a very high standard of re-manufactured vehicle and we are delighted to be able to meet the same exacting standards when finishing the vehicles. The painting and repair side of our activities is expanding fast, both ad hoc work and contracts.”
If you need a vehicle to cover any shortfall in capacity, purchasing a re-manufactured or quality used vehicle can be a much more cost efficient solution. Call us to find out if we have any suitable vehicles in stock.
