RPL to feature in Made in the Midlands virtual 'Industry Meetup' event

RPL to feature in Made in the Midlands virtual 'Industry Meetup' event

Ricoh UK Products Ltd (RPL) is set to feature in a Made in the Midlands Industry Meetup next month.

Made in the Midlands (MIM) is an organisation which champions industry and UK manufacturing. By their own admission, with increased visibility in the marketplace, businesses can share and learn best practice, seek and attain prospective customers, and strengthen the communities within British manufacturing.

Robert Farr, Senior Engineer at RPL, will join two other industry experts at the virtual event, which aims to foster collaboration, inspire innovation, and drive growth within the manufacturing community.

According to MIM: “Each month, we feature three engaging talks from Made Members, focusing on best practice around key themes that shape the future of manufacturing. Our Meetup series covers a wide range of headline topics, including:  Future Factories, Sustainable Manufacturing, Global Britain, and People & Skills.”

For Sustainable Manufacturing, Rob will delve into the innovative Comet Circle concept, which forms the bedrock of Ricoh’s journey towards a circular economy.

The Comet Circle encapsulates Ricoh’s commitment to sustainable manufacturing by encompassing the entire lifecycle of products – from design to end-of-life considerations. As a pioneer in environmental impact reduction, RPL’s expertise in circular economy practices will be unveiled through Rob's talk, with supporting information kindly collated by employees from across the business.

A spokesperson for MIM said: “Our virtual events attract a diverse audience of Made Members, including esteemed senior manufacturing leaders, executives, and professionals.

“We believe in the power of shared experiences and strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone can contribute, learn, and connect.”

In addition to the thought-provoking talks, the Meetup series offers interactive virtual roundtable sessions. For RPL, this will enable regular engagement in lively discussions, exchanging ideas, and gaining further insights from fellow professionals passionate about shaping the future of manufacturing.  

The virtual event will take place on Wednesday, October 11 from 9.00am until 10.15am and is open to members of Made in the Midlands.
