New supply chain agreement
QEW and Kleen-Tex Europe commit to a new supply chain agreement for sustainable rubber backing.
Having a high quality reliable supply chain is absolutely critical for all manufacturing businesses, even more so when a global pandemic hits.
During the summer, when the pandemic permitted travel, we took the opportunity to meet up with Peter Stello and Cor Gringhuis of QEW Engineered Rubber to update our supply chain agreement for high quality engineered rubber backing.
QEW, based in the Netherlands, have been a leading partner to Kleen-Tex in Europe for a number of years. QEW are a sustainable supplier and have recently completed a significant investment in their R&D capabilities, as well as commencing a project to provide solar power for both their own requirements, whilst supporting the Dutch national grid.
It’s certainly been a very challenging year in many respects, but engaging partnerships based upon high quality, mutual trust and sustainability will become increasingly critical to our future successes.
