Sustainable material management

For most companies, life cycle thinking and ecodesign are no longer mere buzzwords. In 2015, Sirris helped many organisations to move towards innovative and sustainable (or more sustainable) products and production processes by deploying a variety of methods and tools including (material) scans, new revenue models and ecodesign.

BCW and Sirris design concept for trailer of the future

Berlaarse Constructie Werken – BCW for short – has been designing and manufacturing small and medium-sized trailers for consumers and businesses since 1978. The family-run business makes a wide array of vehicle and machinery carriers, motorbike trailers, box trailers, tippers and the like. With a view to marketing a new range of lightweight trailers, BCW decided to optimise the design of one of its tippers, i.e. trailers with load spaces that can be tilted sideways or backwards. It asked Sirris to assist it with this ambitious challenge in 2015.
