Gastroback boosts sustainability with new partnership

Gastroback has expanded its partnership with re-work specialist, MCR Services, to reduce waste and improve sustainability.

Staff will undergo training at Gastroback’s Hollenstedt HQ, allowing the team to refurbish any imported appliances which fail to meet its exacting standards.

MCR Services is also growing its capabilities as a returns centre, with staff inspecting and grading returned appliances based on functionality and condition. Rather than being discarded for recycling, such appliances will be refurbished wherever possible and sold at reduced rates or B-grade items.

Since Gastroback’s UK launch in 2020, MCR Services has played a crucial role by fitting 13 amp plugs and PAT testing imported appliances.

Marcus Lux, head of export and business development at Gastroback, commented: “As a responsible business we are investing in additional training in order to reduce waste and further improve sustainability by ensuring any appliances that are returned can be reused and have a long and productive lifecycle.

“Gastroback has a strong relationship with MCR and I’m pleased it is able to play an expanded role in supporting the growth of our brand here in the UK.”

Matthew Fretwell, production and warehouse manager for MCR Services, added: “The business continues to evolve by expanding its capabilities as a returns centre as well as a reworking and packing specialist.

“This strategic partnership between MCR Services and Gastroback reflects our shared commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our operations. The move to appliance refurbishment underlines a dedication to sustainably responsible business practices.”
