Archaeologists have shown that Ecuador’s capital Quito has a history which extends back over 5,000 years, making it one of the oldest cities in the world. This is at least in part due to the city’s famous geography: at an altitude of 2,850 metres above sea level, defenders of the city were able to see enemies coming a few hours in advance. These days, it just means the views are spectacular.

Sentratek Limitada was established in 2005 and part of the Sentratek Group (OFT Group). It has since grown to become a key player in the Beverage sector in mozambque provinding its customers with chemical and water technologies and services.  

Its operation expands across the country with representation in Nampula, Beira and Chimoio, positioning it as the largest locally managed, speciality chemical company in the country and employs over 65 staff. The company has diversified from its original service offering and now acts as the Mozambican conduit for all the OFT Group offerings.

This diversification brings a wide range of specialist products and services directly to the Mozambican economy, through a local company, thus creating greater skills transfer in technical services sector to the benefit of the local community. Sentratek Limitada has full import logistics and warehousing capability, managed from our Admin and Distribution hub in the Matola district of Maputo, to back up our sales and technical resources that work within our client base.

Backed by the full support of the South Africa head office, Sentratek Limitada operates within our corporate structures, policies and procedures.

It has been nearly seven years since Business Excellence first paid a visit to Coca-Cola Sabco Mozambique in Maputo back in 2003. At that time, the company had just entered its second decade in the east African republic. It had already undergone a journey with the country, which still viewed soft drinks as a luxury product because of price constraints.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a Caribbean archipelago perhaps more traditionally accustomed to receiving cruise ships than airplanes. But since 2006, when the Turks and Caicos Islands Airport Authority (TCIAA) was established to control and manage the state-owned airports within the islands, the balance has been redressed. In 2018, the islands welcomed 1.52 million visitors - a new record, which was boosted by tourists flying in.

Setting the direction for a long-term partnership

Vanderlande is a material handling and logistics automation company based in Veghel, Netherlands.

Since 2019, Vanderlande is working on upgrading the baggage handling system at Brussels Airport. Previously Vanderlande was involved in the implementation of our PAX checkpoint solutions, enabling a secure, seamless, rapid and positive traveling experience for all passengers.

Brussels Airport Company is rolling out a large-scale investment programme, including the replacement of the conventional baggage handling system with Vanderlande’s innovative ICS technology. New hold baggage screening machines will be integrated to comply with the latest EU standard 3 regulations. The foreseen operational improvements will allow the airport to handle an expected growth in annual passenger numbers from 25 to 40 million within the next 20 years.

Vanderlande is cooperating closely with ENGIE Fabricom, a key supplier in respect to BHS-related activities at Brussels Airport. Integration of the new system will be executed during live operations, without impact on the passenger experience. This requires a high level of ‘brownfield’ experience in terms of both hardware and software. With this in mind, the strengths of Vanderlande and ENGIE Fabricom have been combined to create synergy and implement the best overall innovative and sustainable solutions to support Brussels Airport in achieving its long-term strategic vison 2040. And become Europe’s best airport by 2040.

Fost Plus, the engine of the circular packaging economy

The non-profit organisation Fost Plus supports the promotion, coordination and financing of selective collection, sorting and recycling of household packaging waste in Belgium.

Brussels Airport and Fost Plus are working together to prevent waste and improve waste sorting and recycling. To this end, several airport partners have signed the Brussels Airport Waste Charter in which they explicitly choose to apply the principles of circular economy. Together, they commit to reducing waste at the airport. They are also aiming to recycle at least 50% of the waste at the airport - including passenger waste - by 2030, which is double the current recycling rate.

All signatory airport partners also undertake to make their staff and passengers aware of how to properly sort waste, with a specific attention that is put on the recovery of plastic bottles and cans.

Fost Plus, in collaboration with Brussels Airport Company, is also conducting an audit at each signatory airport partner to map the current waste sorting organisation. Each company will receive a tailored action plan to achieve the objectives of the Brussels Airport Waste Charter.
