Make it Circular.

We match industries with innovators and services

Our matching system drives innovations in the circular economy around 6 selected core activities. In the circular economy, representatives of companies, science and government work together on innovation and the sharing of knowledge.

The name circular refers to a cycle in which there is less waste and products and raw materials are used again and again. In a circular economy, waste is the raw material for new products and the reuse of materials, components and recovery of resources has become first priority.

More than 67% of the circular solutions consists of innovative service providers from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and consists of a mix of start-ups, scale-ups, SMEs and large companies with a high impact.

The six core activities of circularity are:

1. Rethinking product design
2. Reducing harmful substances
3. Reuse
4. Repair and remanufacturing
5. Recycling
6. Recovering raw materials

Our data engineers match Europe's industrial customers with the objective of decreasing waste, promoting innovation and lowering operational costs. We are experts in maintenance, management, compliance and circularity and use our knowledge for the benefit of people, planet and progress for your business.

A circular strategy improves your supply chain

Trash incineration releases 2.5 times as much carbon dioxide as it takes to make the same amount of electricity as a coal plant.
While scarcity of resources threathens many businesses, waste becomes a novel opportunity for many.

The obsolete model of merely relying on scientists to develop more sustainable production methods and just recycle waste is no longer a viable option.

The outstanding solution here is a comprehensive research effort delivering findings that are fresh and on-point.

A more positive impact on waste reduction comes directly from repairing, refurbishing, testing and upgrading durable manufacturing goods to develop better products.

The outcome of our research audit shows how asset management, waste management and compliance interact brilliantly to produce better business, less waste and a cleaner world for future generations.

Put a circular strategy on your agenda

While time is of the essence for 2030 and the advantages for stakeholder management are clear, introducing a different strategy to the industrial supply chain and implementing it in your maintenance protocol is a challenge. Circular Matchmakers uses audit-based knowledge management to enter into discussions with individuals, teams and interest groups all over Europe. Our insights help you to progress measurably and quickly.

Vetted suppliers

Suppliers are only then recommended to you after passing various quality and vetting stages. Our knowledge management  matches them with your operations. Depending on your selected criteria and their capabilities - even down to component level - you will be able to choose, interview and send suppliers your inquiries directly or invite them for tenders.

Risk management

Our centralized and tamper-proof system, guides and monitors the qualification process of suppliers. We ensure that this is updated annually. Member companies are aware of the high standards of our vetting process and we actively encourage them to make adjustments to their profile. With critical aspects assessed, this contributes to an overall improvement of your supply chain.

Vendor Compliance

Our knowledge management enables vendors who are part of our network to meet your criteria and upgrade their process so that it matches your guidelines, international laws and procurement policy. A thorough assessment of terms and conditions is part of our qualification process. Adjustments in regulations are actively shared to ensure an optimized process.

Cost reduction

Our protocol is based on long-standing experience with international suppliers from the oil, gas and energy sectors in addition to utility, steel and paper milling industries. We make it our mission to contribute to an improved customer service and high customer satisfaction between parties by putting in place a compliance program that avoids the typical pitfalls and reduces the needless time spent on sourcing, onboarding, registration, warranty cases, claims and disputes.

Through our validated business intelligence you will be able to develop and quickly improve your supply chain in order to satisfy your needs.

Circularity means sustainability

Maintenance teams typically tend to choose a service for industrial spare parts or machine consumables to their supply chain only because there are no other solutions left. This is often the case as soon as a machine or process becomes technically obsolete.

Circular Matchmakers encourages you to embrace qualified services as an integral part of your procurement protocol much sooner in the technical lifetime because these are more sustainable, cost saving, risk mitigating and- very often- offer a quicker solution. Let us surprise you by our network’s know-how and engineering expertise.

Knowledge management

We are a knowledge management company and connect you with services that add value to maintenance and operations.

Our qualification system matches buyers with qualified vendors to quickly improve their circular strategy. Just like circularity itself, our monitoring is a continuous and endless loop which improves visibility and gives you more control over your industrial supply chain.
