PlastikCity Joins East Midlands Chamber

Online procurement and marketing hub for the plastics industry, PlastikCity, has become a member of the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce. PlastikCity, now in its tenth year of trading from the South Leicestershire countryside, hopes to strengthen bonds with local businesses and aid the region’s economic expansion.

PlastikCity is delighted to announce its new membership to the East Midlands Chamber, the leading business representation organisation in the East Midlands region. Comprising over 4,300 local businesses, from start-ups to global brands, the Chamber is renowned across the region for enhancing the business community in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

Becoming an active member of local organisations and supporting business growth and networking initiatives such as the East Midlands Chamber is part of PlastikCity’s recent plans for expansion as the digital procurement company enters its 10th year of trading. In October 2021, PlastikCity announced the release of the next generation of its procurement platform, with a website overhaul enabling visitors to more easily access and gain comparative quotes from industry-leading manufacturers and suppliers.

Keeping up with this momentum, in January 2022, the newly revamped ‘Plastic Industry Jobs’ section on the PlastikCity website was unveiled, with the goal of improving efficiency and modernising the way companies in the sector operate by creating a central jobs board dedicated to the plastics industry. Jobs posted on the PlastikCity feature recruitment companies, PlastikCity Partners, and general plastics industry positions, and now with over 80 live positions listed, it is one of the central employment hubs for the sector.

Now in Spring 2022, PlastikCity has joined the East Midlands Chamber, further aligning with its goals for growth.

Speaking about the membership, PlastikCity’s Communications Director, Jess Clarke, commented:

“We’re delighted to become a member of the East Midlands Chamber and to join an organisation full of other like-minded businesses. With access to a host of expert advice and with opportunities to network with local companies and attend events or training workshops to improve the skills of our workforce, I’m certain our company will see many benefits from membership. Looking at the membership directory, it was also pleasing to see many other PlastikCity Partners already as chamber members!”

PlastikCity’s Managing Director, Carl Futcher, added:

“PlastikCity is always looking at ways we can grow, improve our services, and better support the companies we represent. We feel membership in local organisations such as the Chamber of Commerce aligns with these goals, and we look forward to becoming an active member of the community and further supporting manufacturing businesses and suppliers within the East Midlands region and nationwide.”

The activities of the East Midlands Chamber are so diverse that the organisation supports thousands of businesses across the East Midlands, who put their trust in the organisation to help their businesses flourish and grow – irrespective of size or sector. Chamber members benefit from a wide range of business support services from lobbying and campaigning, helping businesses realise their international trade ambitions, workplace training and development, and much more.
