First ECTA Board Meeting In UKby Press Release on 2012-03-29 02:32:34
The Directors of the European Chemical Transport Association (ECTA) recently held a meeting at the HQ of Cheshire based global logistics provider Suttons.
It’s the first time the Board has met in the UK and the visit gave its members the opportunity to have a look around the Widnes site where more than 250 of the Suttons workforce are based.
ECTA‘s mission is to improve the standards of efficiency, safety, and security as well as the environmental and social impacts of the transport and logistics of chemical goods in Europe.
Andrew Palmer, Group Managing Director of Suttons and ECTA Board member, said:
“The visit of colleagues from across Europe gave us the opportunity to show the scale of our site in Widnes.
“They were also able to meet staff, including some from our well established apprenticeship programme.
“They particularly liked the innovative Suttons designed, training tank container which has already proved a popular attraction at exhibitions across Europe, as it enables people to climb inside and see the technical aspects of a typical tank.”
Suttons is based in Cheshire, UK and operates globally with key business centres in Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Houston, Kuantan, Le Havre, New Jersey, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo.
