Cromwell Polythene expands recycling expertise through acquisition

Recycling specialist, Cromwell Polythene is expanding its operations following the purchase of Moorgreen Flexible Packaging from Duo Plastics Ltd. The sale was made to Vickers-Lee Holdings Ltd, owner of Cromwell Polythene, and will enable all parties involved to enhance their sustainable solutions for customers.

The purchase is consistent with Cromwell’s strategy to lead the way in supplying high-quality products with low environmental impact, for the capture and containment of resources for recycling. It follows Cromwell Polythene’s recent move into its purpose built headquarters and distribution facility at Sherburn-in-Elmet.

Moorgreen Flexible Packaging, based in Alfreton in Derbyshire, recycles and manufactures polythene, film, bags, and sacks from both recycled and prime virgin polythene.

James Lee, managing director of Cromwell Polythene, said: “This is another exciting chapter in helping our customers reach their resource efficiency goals. We have enjoyed a good business relationship with Moorgreen for over 20 years and always admired their recycling, film extrusion and print capabilities, flexible lead times and competitive pricing. The dedication and skills of the workforce are self-evident and show through in the quality, presentation and performance of the films. The business is a good fit with the Cromwell group – it has excellent operations and employees are committed to the business. We are looking forward to more investment in the Alfreton site to strengthen our UK recycling and manufacturing, furthering our ambitions to help grow the circular economy.”
