Lancing based BCMY Ltd re-use and recycle used printer cartridges. They began working with the Green Growth Platform because they wanted to expand their operations, secure larger contracts and find new uses for the plastics found in printer cartridges.
Simon Gilchrist, owner of BCMY:
“The university helped us to secure a Knowledge Transfer Partnership project to develop a stock, sales and ordering process. We’re working with an expert from the university and postgraduate researcher to develop a state of the art IT system. We’re expecting this to lead to improvements in efficiency and profitability and a decrease in risk exposure, as well as freeing up staff to concentrate on deeper product knowledge and customer relationship building. Working with the Green Growth Platform has enabled us to source additional funding for resources, access knowledge and introduced us to industry contacts we never would have come across.”
