Environmental Responsibilities

We take our environmental responsibilities seriously.

  • Any parts that do not meet our high quality standards during manufacture are granulated back into pellet form to be used in other products that permit the inclusion of recycled material thus eliminating landfill.
  • Studies have been conducted into the use of plastic versus cardboard in the returnable transit case sector. It’s been shown that plastic is by far the greener material when energy usage to manufacture the product is taken into account along with the number of times each type of container can be used before needing to be recycled. In less than a year the plastic case is normally not only greener but more cost effective.
  • Depending on the application we often advise clients to consider the use of re-processed polymer for their plastic containers.  Not only is it a lower cost option than prime grade material for the customer, it’s also re-using a large quantities of consumer grade plastics that might otherwise end up in landfill.  We currently convert more than 1,000 metric tons per annum of polypropylene into industrial grade containers and other products and we plan to continue doing so.
