Our approach to sustainability

We are proactive in our approach to sustainability and work closely with our customers to meet their environmental objectives.

As a high-volume plastic injection moulder, we have many sustainability initiatives in place and our strategy ensures we are responsible from raw material selection through to product disposal. 

Design - Creating better products

Through innovative thinking we reduce the amount of plastic required to make the product a success, ensuring quality and performance are not sacrificed along the way. We use superior structural design and component reduction to maximise the beneficial properties plastics can deliver.

Materials - Improving the supply chain and footprint

Selecting the right plastic will dramatically reduce the effect on our environment. By limiting the variety of plastic used in each product, we make it easier for consumers to recycle. Making best use of the material ensures we gain maximum value. We have implemented sustainable procurement practices with suppliers to achieve the eco-efficiencies that our customers and we recognise. 

Injection Moulding - Improving eco-efficiencies

We are continuously addressing our impact on the environment and are always looking to gain operational efficiencies where possible. We focus our efforts on using multi-cavity tools with faster cycle times, not to just improve production output, but to reduce our energy consumption. 

Recycling - Being responsible

A key advantage for our customers within sustainability is Closed Loop, our internal process in which residual plastic waste and the excess stock is reused to make something new.

Plastic waste often occurs in manufacturing during colour purges, implementing new moulds, completing maintenance, and carrying out quality compliance checks. The primary ambition of Closed Loop is to manage this waste by reusing it.

Whilst Closed Loop supports our sustainability objectives it also continues to deliver further value to our customers. Through Closed Loop, we provide a valuable service which allows customers to return their excess inventory for regrinding and reuse. The granulated plastic is closely monitored to ensure each customer receives their allocation of recycled material via an alternative product.

Our Closed Loop and Recycling Centers continue to reduce the demand for virgin material, reducing the impact on the environment across the entire supply chain. In addition, maximising the value of plastics and reducing waste creates significant cost savings for our customers.
