German waste tech firm picks Cambridge
A waste management technology provider from Germany, operating in European, Australasian and Middle Eastern markets, has taken office space in Kingfisher House, Great Shelford, as part of its expansion plans.
c-trace specialises in waste management and recycling technology for use with vehicle mounted systems that can weigh the net weight of collected material each time a bin is emptied and relay the information by RFID (radio frequency identification) technology.
Ian Martin, the firm’s sales director, said: “We needed to expand because we have taken on some large national clients and we require additional staff to manage and service these clients. In the fullness of time we intend to fully relocate to Shelford from Birmingham.”
Mark Robinson of the agent Robinson Layer said: “Apparently the firm’s main reason for the choice of location is the close proximity to rail connections from London and Stansted. It will provide the firm’s main base for sales and parts administration.”
