Visionscape Group opts for Egbert Taylor

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

UK-based bin manufacturer and waste solutions provider, Egbert Taylor Group, has received the first global order under a framework agreement with Visionscape Group, the global environmental utility group.

The contract is expected to see Egbert Taylor Group supply bins throughout the next few years to the Visionscape group for new projects currently being rolled out across emerging markets.

The order covers a range of commercial waste and recycling containers across Egbert Taylor Group’s Taylor and Sellers brands, including the Taylor Continental 1,100L unit and Sellers’ range of recycling skips ranging from five to 20 cubic metres.

The first stage of the order is anticipated to be delivered during the second quarter of 2017.

According to Egbert Taylor Group, its custom-made steel containers have now been earmarked for high-profile projects throughout the Middle East and Africa and were selected for what Visionscape Middle East and North Africa’s CEO, John Irvine, describes as their “exacting standards and suitability across a wide range of waste streams.”

Irvine added: “These units will be situated in areas where footfall is high and subjected to continual use, day in, day out. As a result, deploying bins that are built to last and that have been designed and manufactured based on rigorous testing and superb engineering is an absolute must. Egbert Taylor Group has a history of producing highly-engineered products and we’re proud to be rolling out a perfect example of British engineering at its very best across our new fleets.”

The bins will incorporate radio-frequency identification systems (RFID), which will electronically track and record the movement and fill status of thousands of bins across Visionscape’s new fleet. The inclusion of RFID is expected to allow those using the units, which include municipalities and private sector companies, to optimise their waste collection infrastructure by having the ability to adapt their collection routes in real time.

The RFID capability will also deliver an asset management tool that enables users to establish each unit’s location at any given moment and monitor how, where and when each bin is being used.

“We are ready to ramp up the production line here in the UK,” said Brendan Murphy, Egbert Taylor Group’s CEO. “Visionscape Group’s decision to select Taylor products is a testament to the company’s commitment to changing the landscape of waste management in emerging markets.”

Taylor is a specialist of four-wheeled, galvanised steel waste and recycling containers and aesthetic street furniture for the waste and recycling industry. It claims to supply around 90% of all UK local authorities and most UK private contractors. The business operates globally, supplying the waste and recycling containment infrastructure for entire cities and countries, and is accredited to ISO 9001 (2008) and ISO 14001.
