April 2020 – It’s business as usual

After the terrible weather we’ve been experiencing since the start of the New Year we are looking forward to the calmer, drier and warmer months ahead. However, we do have feelings of trepidation. The decade hasn’t started particularly well with actual, no longer debatable, Brexit on the 31stJanuary. At least we still have the relative stability of the transition period until end 2020. We’ll prepare ourselves for all eventualities and see what bridge we have to cross at the end of the year. Of more immediate concern is the worldwide spread of the COVID 19 virus. The IPI team is taking all possible and advised precautions to avoid catching the illness, including suspension of all business travel unless absolutely necessary. We, as everyone else, are monitoring the situation carefully and will update you if necessary. In the meantime it’s business as usual. In this edition of our newsletter we’ll be talking about the development history of the Micro Matic closed loop systems, the principle of Circular Economy and an update on IPI Europe GmbH. We hope you enjoy it.

December 2019 – Happy Christmas and A Healthy and Prosperous New Year

The end of 2019 is almost upon us and as always, when we look back over the past year, there have been ups and downs. As this is a celebratory time of year we are going to ignore Brexit because, love it or merely tolerate it, it’s nearly Christmas. Whether you dive headfirst into the festivities or let them quietly pass by, one thing we can all look forward to is a break to spend time with loved ones. As ever the IPI team wish you and your families a peaceful and joyous Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year. We thank you for your business this year and look forward to speaking with you in 2020. Apart from information on our PRO-BLEND® Closed Mixing System, in this edition we are focussing on getting your festive juices flowing with some Christmas trivia.

August 2019 – Sand in the toes

After the challenges of the past year we are looking forward to the summer holidays and can almost feel the sun on our backs (fingers crossed) and sand in our toes. Despite the uncertainty in the Spring it has been business as usual and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our valued customers, for your ongoing business and support. We hope you enjoy a relaxing and refreshing summer break. In this edition you will see a new video we have produced, a review of Chemspec Europe, a supermarket trial to reduce plastic waste and an update on our website. Happy summer!

April 2019 – Our work continues

We find ourselves in challenging times, dear customer, with no relief from the storm clouds in sight. The confusion and uncertainty of Brexit continues and yet, despite it all, so must trade. We are focussed on our goal to provide our customers with a dependable and reliable partner, especially during this turbulent period. Despite the turmoil we remain energised, committed and enthusiastic in our drive to promote the use of closed loop systems for the safe handling of hazardous chemicals. Our work continues. In this issue you will find information on our plans to create a trading entity in the EU, about our Ionexchanger cartridges as well as exhibitions and customer visits.

December 2018 – Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year

It’s difficult to believe time has gone so fast, yet here we are, approaching the end of another year. The past 12 months have had their successes and challenges and we have been working hard to spread the message of closed transfer and handling liquids safely. So much so, we are looking forward to enjoying a break over the festive season. The IPI office will be closed from 12 noon on Friday, 21stDecember and will re-open on Wednesday, 2ndJanuary, 2019. Emails and voicemails will be monitored during this period so, if you do contact us, we’ll respond as soon as possible. We thank you for your business in 2018 and would like to wish you and your loved ones a very happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year. We look forward to working with you in 2019.   This edition will include our Brexit strategy and a profile of our Warehouse Operative, Mike Sanders.

August 2018 – Recycling at its best!

Thank goodness all those GDPR emails have stopped arriving in our inboxes! It has been quite challenging wading through pages of regulations and trying to understand how they apply to our company. It seems everyone has interpreted the rules slightly differently, making it extremely difficult to find a definitive answer. After lots of research and advice we have come to the conclusion that the basic GDPR principal of respecting people’s wishes and using their contact details honourably and respectfully is nothing new to us, and is something our company has always strived to do. We will therefore continue, unless you ask us to stop, sending you relevant information we feel will benefit your company. If you would like to read our updated privacy statement, please do so here. So, what can you expect from this edition of our newsletter? Here in the UK plastic waste and its impact on the environment is a hot topic. Following that theme we describe the environmental benefits of the returnable packaging system. Recycling at its best! You will also see a video showcasing the use of closed loop transfer for handling Methyl Iodide, a highly toxic substance. It is inspiring to see how easily both workers and the environment can be protected from even the most dangerous of liquids. We hope you find these articles interesting and would love to hear your comments and suggestions about our products. Please contact us here.

April 2018 – welcoming Spring with open arms

Winter is clinging on with some final and brutal flurries of snow and freezing temperatures and yet the sun, when it has the chance to shine, is already much warmer and brings with it the promise of growth, warmth and new life to banish the harshness of winter. Here at IPI we are looking forward to welcoming Spring with open arms. In this issue we showcase the HVV System from Micro Matic and show you a video we filmed at OQEMA (formerly Lansdowne Chemicals), which perfectly showcases the cleanliness, safety and ease of use of the Micro Matic closed loop systems. You will also get to know one of our long term team members, Isabelle Lockwood. We hope you enjoy our newsletter and are, as ever, grateful to receive your comments and feedback.

December 2017 – Welcome! December is approaching

Where does the time go? Surely we can’t already be approaching December! It really is amazing how quickly time seems to go by and deadlines we thought were far away are all of a sudden upon us. Has your company done all the necessaries to comply with REACH regulations? The final registration date for low volume chemicals is the 31st May 2018.

August 2017 – Welcome! Summer is upon us

Welcome to another IPI newsletter. We hope you are finding the articles informative and enjoyable. If you have questions about any of the content, or would like to find out more, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’d be delighted to discuss any queries with you.

April 2017 – Welcome! Spring has arrived

Welcome! Spring has arrived and with it come longer, hopefully sunnier and warmer days to drive away the chill of winter, which seems to have been particularly bitter for some this year. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee the weather but at least there are Easter treats to look forward to. Knowledgeable and dedicated professionals though we are, there isn’t much we won’t do for chocolate.

December 2016 – Welcome to our second newsletter

We have had a great response to our first edition and want to thank all of you who have taken the time to write or talk to us about it. We really appreciate your opinion on us and what we do, so please get in touch if you have comments on any aspect of our products or service. sales@ipi-global.com
