Plastics recycler Centriforce has invested £1 million in new manufacturing facilities in Liverpool to boost production by 50%, the firm announced today.
A fourth production line has been installed to expand manufacturing capacity for its 100% recycled Stokbord all-purpose board in response to increased demand in construction, agricultural and retail markets.
Production has already doubled in size over the past four years.
“We have invested consistently in manufacturing facilities during the past decade and anticipate further significant growth during the next three to five years,” said Centriforce managing director Simon Carroll.
“We work to develop ‘closed loop’ schemes in which we deliver useful finished products back to our customers made from the waste they supply. We also have the capability to take back our products for onward re-use or recycling.”
Stokbord is a recycled general-purpose board in the UK with a diverse range of applications as a tough, durable, non-slip and hygienic alternative to plywood. Easy to weld, rout and cut, it provides the base material for fabrication of a wide range of recycled products from advertising hoardings to stable liners.
Maintenance-free, easy to clean and resistant to chemicals, it does not require painting or treatment.
Centriforce has recently been awarded ISO9001 and OHSAS 18001 quality and safety accreditations.
