Cromwell Polythene has a manufacturing and recycling division named CPR Manufacturing in Alfreton, Derbyshire. The site has increased the group’s capacity to recover and reprocess scrap polythene, furthering its ambitions to stimulate the circular economy of resources. The site compliments Cromwell’s existing Polythene Recovery Service which facilitates the collection of scrap polythene from customers and ensures resources are kept within the UK. Recovered material is recycled on-site and extruded into more film, increasing the recycled content of the factory’s output in line with WRAP guidelines.
Cromwell’s manufacturing team don’t just produce and deliver polythene; they develop and improve it. Whether it’s a brand-new packaging line that requires extensive trials, testing and technical advice or just simply being available to work alongside a customer to test new blends. The quality of our workmanship is extremely high, and our rigorously trained and experienced machine operators use the latest equipment and techniques to ensure consistency in every run.
We understand polythene requirements are not always suited to a one size fits all approach. Sometimes bespoke support is required, and tailored product needs to be manufactured. Our team can collaborate with you to produce blends that have a specific purpose and create film that meets requested specification.
Each blend we produce can be a mix of different polythene grades and additives, which are designed to give the performance characteristics needed for a requested purpose. Cromwell’s industry leading team of account managers, operators and engineers have collectively developed a reputation for being at the cusp of employing innovative polymers to craft highly valued polythene and compostable products. Through strong long-lasting relationships, and rigorous R&D, our teams source the latest technology from around the world to create blends that produce cutting edge polythene that excels in purpose, reducing a customer’s environmental impact and cost.
We continually evaluate our manufacturing processes to enhance film performance and reduce waste. Everything produced is always fantastic quality and great value.
