Hereford-based Vision Gelpack has been awarded a position on ESPO's 860 framework, which covers a wide range of refuse, recycling and clinical waste sacks for the local authority and waste management sectors. Established in 1981, ESPO is a collaborative partnership between six councils - Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Warwickshire, and Peterborough. Between them, these six local authorities help others to aggregate their procurement demands, achieving efficiencies and cost savings across a range of products.
"Being awarded a position on one of ESPO's frameworks represents a great endorsement of our company and its products," said Vision Gelpack's managing director, Geoff Davis. "What this means in practical terms is that schools and academies, police and emergency services, local councils, local NHS trusts and similar public bodies can purchase UK manufactured products in the knowledge that they are EU/UK compliant and that ESPO has already conducted a full assessment of Vision Gelpack's financial stability, track record, experience and technical and professional capabilities."
