Plastic injection mould manufacturer, Coral Products (Mouldings) LTD, is investing in an in-house recycling plant in order to offer housing associations and councils the option to recycle their plastics.
The company, which is a leading manufacturer and distributor of plastic injection moulded items, market its products in a diverse range of sectors including, food packaging, household, healthcare, automotive, telecoms and rail.
The Manufacturer spoke to Coral Products (Mouldings) LTD, managing director, Neil Ashurst about the plans, he said: “The recycling plant will mean that we are able to offer councils, housing associations and other companies the option of recycling their waste plastic or old containers, and we can then use this new recycled material to create other products.”
The recycling plant, which will be based in the company’s Haydock site in Merseyside, will see the business utilise waste plastic from the surrounding areas to produce their products.
Ashurst added that reusing old plastic by recycling it in-house will reduce the total amount of plastic being made, and therefore going into landfill.
He spoke about the importance of recycling wherever the company is able to: “With the impact of waste plastic upon the environment, we are conscious as a plastics company to reduce any impact we may have.”
Ashurst said the company regrind waste plastic where possible to be reused within their products, and is making further investments to become a entirely self-sufficient business.
The company specialises in providing adaptable products for customers by offering bespoke design and specifications, and sample products that are then put through a complete testing, planning and development process.
Ashurst concluded: “We are constantly reviewing our products for our recycling and are developing new products with higher use of recycled material.”
