CPR Manufacturing

In January 2020 Cromwell Polythene Ltd. expanded its UK manufacturing and recycling base with the acquisition of Moorgreen Flexible Packaging, a long-established recycling and extrusion facility based in Alfreton, Derbyshire.

Initially trading as Cromwell Plastics Recycling Ltd and now rebranded CPR Manufacturing, 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 move compliments Cromwell’s existing Polythene Recovery Service which facilitates the collection of used polythene packaging from customers and helps keep this valuable resource in the UK. Recovered material is recycled and extruded into more film products. This is one way we are increasing the recycled content of our products, in line with WRAP guidelines.

CPR Manufacturing produces LDPE, MDPE, LLDPE and compostable films from 150mm to 1600mm wide, and 20-200 microns thickness for the industrial, commercial, retail, local authority, and healthcare sectors. We can produce films from 100% recycled or virgin polythene, or blends including EuCertPlast certified recycled material. Ongoing investment is continually broadening the range of products which currently includes: LFT, CFS, SWS, DWS, with the option of registered printing, and conversion to bags on a roll and in flat packs.
