Cromwell Polythene expands

Supplier of sacks, bags, and other polythene waste management products for the janitorial, local authority and healthcare sectors, Leeds- based Cromwell Polythene has moved to new premises, nearly doubling its existing warehouse and office facilities. The company’s new 30,000 sq. ft. headquarters will accommodate some 3000 pallets and is in addition to its 10,000 sq. ft. dedicated recycling plant nearby.

The move, the company’s third since it was founded 27 years ago, will allow continued expansion as Cromwell builds on its existing £9 million sales turnover. “We are fortunate in having identified a site with great growth potential close to our existing location and within a short travelling distance of our Moxon Way recycling facility,” said managing director James Lee. “We have ambitious growth targets across all our specialist divisions, which will be that much easier to achieve with the increased efficiencies that the new premises provide. Since moving to Sherburn-in-Elmet in 2002 we have been joined by Sainsburys, Eddie Stobart, and now Debenhams, all of whom operate state-of-the-art RDC’s, proving that Sherburn-in-Elmet really is in a prime location for UK-wide distribution, as it is located so close to main north-south and east-west arterial routes.”

The new address is: Orion Building, Seafox Court, Sherburn Enterprise Park, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Leeds, LS25 6PL.
