Speakers: Jacqueline Balfour, Business Development Manager, Scottish Institute for Remanufacture

With supplies of resources and energy limited, the transition to a circular economy is key to Scotland’s industrial strategy.  Re-manufacturing can have a significant impact in all sectors through preventing waste, improving resource management, increasing productivity and enhancing competitiveness.

Cummins is a global power leader that designs, manufactures, sells and services diesel engines and related technology around the world.  From its base in Cumbernauld, the business remanufactures engines and components for markets in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Presenting alongside the Scottish Institute of Remanufacture, Cummins will describe its collaboration with SIR to develop its innovative remanufacturing business model.

This workshop will showcase how you can improve your own efficiency, reduce costs and become more sustainable by developing new business models through re-use, re-manufacture and repair.
