Cromwell Polythene strengthens manufacturing and recycling operations

Cromwell Polythene continues to strengthen its UK recycling and manufacturing operations to help businesses protect themselves and the environment during the pandemic. The family-run company, which has been in operation for 38 years, has seen increased demand for its range of essential products to help prevent the spread of infection. These include disposable gloves, aprons, and other PPE, as well as its range of sacks to capture clinical waste, including dressings and COVID-19 testing kits.

Investment has been made in new machinery and upgrades to existing machines at its UK manufacturing and recycling site, CPR Manufacturing. This has improved processes and increased energy efficiency to help meet the Climate Change Agreement obligations, as well as increasing capacity for film extrusion and bag making, in recycled and virgin polythene.

James Lee, managing director of Cromwell Polythene, said: “Our comprehensive range of products is designed to prompt responsible waste disposable and recycling behaviour, whilst helping to keep people safe and minimise infection risk.”
