Euro Pool System Establishes UK Operation

Reusable packaging service provider Euro Pool System has set up shop in UK. “I’m looking forward to working with the UK retail market to develop solutions that meet their current and ongoing needs,” stated Steve Raybould, manager of the UK organisation.

With several service centers and offices in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Italy and the Czech Republic, UK is the eighth country where Euro Pool System has established itself. The reason for crossing over to Great Britain is that British retailers are receiving an ever increasing amount of fresh produce from the continent in Euro Pool System’s returnable containers.

“We want to develop relationships with major retailers in order to further standardise the containers for their imported product,” Raybould said. “When providers deliver products in our returnable containers, this is much more cost effective for the retailers. Our crates are easier to pick and handle compared to cardboard boxes, ultimately giving better product presentation and less waste. We are also developing new solutions, whereby our crates inter-work with the domestic pools of UK retailers.”

Raybould is a graduate from Bristol Business School, he has been active in the business world for 25 years. Two of his previous employers were CHEP and Christian Salvesen, both well known reusable asset service providers. “At Christian Salvesen, I was in charge of the major retail accounts,” he said. “I’m absolutely enthusiastic about fulfilling this mission, in cooperation with Euro Pool System’s team.”
