Hupfer launches buy back guarantee

Under the new scheme, Hupfer will buy back eligible products at the end of their working life to be recycled and deduct their scrap value from its quotation for replacement products.

Hupfer has launched a Buy Back Guarantee on its stainless steel and aluminium shelving and trolleys, thus providing UK customers with the opportunity to earn rebates, support the circular economy and boost their sustainability performance.

Under the new scheme, the manufacturer will buy back eligible products at the end of their working life to be recycled and deduct the scrap value of the equipment from its quotation for replacement products.

If the customer does not require a replacement equipment quote, Hupfer will instead assist in finding a local recycling company to ensure recovery.

All Hupfer catering and medical equipment made primarily of stainless steel or aluminium is eligible for buy back.

Marc Sumner, sales and marketing director at Hupfer UK, says: “It’s more important than ever to think about the entire lifecycle of products, which includes disposal, and we’re making it easier for our customers to support a circular economy.

“If a recyclable Hupfer product is no longer useful, either because it has come to the end of its lifecycle or because circumstances have changed, we’ll either deduct the scrap value from a new quote or assist with local recycling.

“Either way, our customer can claim back the scrap metal cost of the Hupfer product, safe in the knowledge that it will be reused or recycled.

“We all need to do what we can to support a greener future. Stainless steel and aluminium are 100% recyclable and retain their natural properties no matter how many times they are recycled. Crucially, recycling these metals reduces the energy-intensive processes involved in primary production. Using aluminium scrap can reduce CO2 emissions by 92% compared to raw aluminium.

“With Hupfer’s Buy Back Guarantee, our customers can support their own closed-loop sustainability strategy, earn rebates based on the scrap metal price and help us to deliver a more sustainable product.”
