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.
Renamed Cromwell Plastics Recycling Ltd and then later 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 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.
CPR Manufacturing produces LDPE, MDPE, linear and compostable films from 150mm to 1600mm, 20-200 micron for the industrial, retail, trade, local authority, and healthcare sectors. We can produce 100% recycled films or blends and can run EuCertPlast certified 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.
