SPC Where People Come First

Leading rubber compounder, SPC UK, has successfully renewed its Investors in People accreditation.

Based on 25 years of leading practice, the international recognised Investors in People Standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.

Valid for three years, the Investors in People Standard requires businesses to be reassessed across a range of stringent criteria in order to renew accreditation.

Following a period of testing, including interviews of SPC staff by Investors in People inspectors, SPC was rewarded with the renewed standard.

“We’re committed to the ongoing support and investment in our skilled workforce and our pleased to have this commitment formally recognised by the Investors in People Standard.”

DKT 2015 shows rubber industry leading the way

As the DKT show (the International Rubber Conference and Trade Exhibition) draws to a close, a leading compounding specialist has hailed it as an example of everything that is good in the industry.

Paul Hallas, Operations Director of SPC said: “The European rubber industry is setting a good example of how, even in these times of global economic uncertainty, it is putting Europe at the heart of a global market.”

“The industry is continuing to innovate and invest in the future. Nowhere was that more evident than at the DKT 2015 exhibition, which was filled with examples of innovation and was a great showcase of a buoyant industry.”

DKT (Deutsche Kautschuk Tagung – the International Rubber Conference and Trade Exhibition) takes place every three years at Nuremberg in Germany. The four-day show is an important date in the rubber and polymer sector calendar.

SPC was one of more than 270 exhibitors at the 2015 show, which attracted record numbers of visitors. On his return from the exhibition Paul Hallas said: “The Trade Association of the German Rubber Industry and the German Rubber Society must be congratulated for their hard work and for hosting such an excellent event.”

“SPC enjoyed great success at DKT and our attendees enjoyed meeting both new and old acquaintances”, he added.
